Capterra Value Report: A Price Comparison Guide for Vacation Rental Software

By | 11 min read | Published

Compare pricing for the top vacation rental software products with the highest value-for-money and functionality ratings.

We hear from software buyers time and again that two of their top considerations when investing in a new vacation rental solution are price and functionality. Budget is a constraint for most businesses, but affordability alone doesn’t make a product valuable—it must also offer the functionality you need.

In this report, we’ve ranked the most valuable vacation rental software products based on user reviews: those with the highest marks for both value for money and functionality. We also break down the starting cost and relevant pricing details for each product.

Top vacation rental software rated on value for money and functionality

The graphic below shows vacation rental products that have the highest value-for-money and functionality ratings based on user reviews in Capterra’s software directory. Products are arranged in increasing order of their value-for-money rating (bottom to top) and functionality rating (left to right).

Note: While products in the top-right zone of the graph rank higher in terms of both the functionality and the value-for-money rating, all products in this graph are top rated.

Price comparison for top-rated vacation rental software

Comparing pricing and features for multiple software solutions can prove to be a difficult task. We have created a table to highlight how different vacation rental software products stack up against each other in terms of starting pricing, free trials, and free versions, allowing you to compare these products all in one place.

The products in the above table are taken from the scatter plot (for which the pricing information is available publicly). These products are arranged in alphabetical order and the pricing included in this table is for the entry-level/lowest-priced offering found on vendor websites as of July 13, 2022. The cost of these vacation rental software products may vary based on the number of users, features, or other factors.

How did we choose these products? We didn’t—you did

To find your ideal software match, you need information you can trust so you can save time, stay on budget, and focus more energy on growing your business. It’s why we vet and verify all our user reviews and recommend only the tools endorsed by people like you.

In other words, our product recommendations are never bought or sold or based on the opinion of a single individual—they’re chosen by your peers, reflecting the views and experiences of our independent base of software reviewers.


​​At Capterra, we objectively select and rank products based on a methodology developed by our research team. Some vendors pay us when they receive web traffic, but this has no influence on our methodology.

To be considered for this list, products have to:

  1. Have at least 20 unique product reviews published on Capterra within the past two years, as of July 13, 2022.
  2. Meet our definition of vacation rental software to be considered as a market fit: “Vacation rental software is used by property owners of houses, apartments, and condos, to manage the reservations and marketing of their properties for vacation goers as an alternative to hotels. These software products are typically also used by companies for corporate housing management to maintain employee schedules in corporate-owned properties as an alternative to extended-stay hotels. Vacation rental software is related to hospitality property management software.”
  3. Of the products that met the above criteria, the 25 with the highest functionality and value-for-money ratings were mapped on a scatter plot.
  4. From these 25 products, only those with publicly available pricing information on the vendor website were included in the price comparison table. Therefore, the price comparison table is a subset of the scatter plot.

Note: The pricing included in the price comparison table is for the base product plan found on vendor websites as of July 13, 2022. This data may have changed since publication and may not reflect current conditions.

Disclaimer: The Capterra value report highlights the most reviewed products based on value for money and functionality ratings from end users. This data may have changed since publication and may not reflect current conditions.
