Save time by automating your guest screening process

Vacation rental guest screening is a vital part of any business. It ensures that only legitimate guests get access to your rental properties. The best way property managers can do this is through continuous authentication. 

This involves checking the validity of each guest’s data against multiple sources, ensuring that no fraudulent activity takes place.

Your guest books


We verify their details


You host without risk

Manage risk and protect yourself from fraudulent bookings

By implementing our industry-leading guest screening checks you’ll know exactly
who is staying in your short-term rental every time.

Prevent Parties

Identify guests who likely intend to use your rental for a party. Red flags include guests of a specific age group (below 25 years old) who live in the same area as your rental, book an entire home for a one-night stay, and have no positive reviews.

Avoid fraudulent bookings and credit card fraud

Fraud is becoming more and more common. Through ID verification (asking your guests to verify their identity), it can help root out fraudsters and help you only accept legitimate bookings.

Prevent criminal activity in your rental

While the vast majority of guests are well-intentioned, there have been reported cases of drug abuse and other illegal activity in short-term rentals.

Our Intelligent Guest Screening performs background checks against a guest’s rental history making sure you only host guests that will respect your property.

Comply with local laws and regulations

Now available to property managers in the US is our Sex Offender Screening tool.

This automated add-on helps you comply with local regulations by checking the information provided by your guest against local sexual offender registers, with our system notifying you if their details are a match.
