What RueBaRue Can Help You Do

Save time and cut costs

Build unique guestbooks in seconds with property guides and destination guides that guests love. Our platform integrates seamlessly with popular rental software to let you send guestbooks, guest surveys and personalized messages automatically on dates you choose by text message or email. Free up your staff to perform other tasks. Relax knowing your guests have all the information they need at their fingertips.

Boost your bottom line

Drive more revenue with online sales of products and services. Our Upsell feature facilitates sales of concierge services, tours, tickets to area events, sports equipment rentals, branded produced like T-shirts and hats, early check-on/late check-out and more using Apple, Google or Samsung pay. Charges are applied to the guest credit card on file.

Answer guest questions instantly

Improve guest satisfaction by answering questions by text before guests arrive or during their stay. Our Guest SMS Messaging feature supplies a dedicated phone number for your business, so guest messages are fielded by you or a team member and don’t come in on your personal phone line. Messages are stored automatically for review if necessary.

Go paperless and stay up-to-date

Create a phenomenal guest experience by giving guests all the information they need about their vacation homes and area on their phones, tablets and computers. Information updates automatically saving you time and effort. Lose the clunky binders, brochures and photocopied instructions that become dog-eared and outdated.

Inform and inspire your guests

Gift your guests with the ultimate trip planner and send the destination guide automatically before they arrive. Our search algorithms zero in on high quality content in your area that you can customize as you please, complete with recommendations and tips. Build a destination guide in minutes that’s jam-packed with unique local experiences that create memorable trips, score five-star reviews and lure guests back.

Outpace the competition

Be in the game. Major hospitality brands like Marriott and Airbnb are rolling out guest experience platforms, destination content and mobile messaging. Don't get left behind.
