We recommend including four photos per room type (including the bathroom), and one of each of the key areas (amenities) that make your property special (the common spaces, pools, dining, etc.). They don't need to be professional photo, well-lit smartphone photos will work, but they should have a minimum resolution of 1,000 pixels.

However, having worked with more than one million properties globally, we know that manually managing your inventory can take a lot of time. Connectivity channel providers create a two-way flow of information between your system and ours, so that reservations, rates and availability are updated automatically. Displaying accurate inventory maximizes the impact of your OTA listing and reduces the risk of over ordering.
