Using Wix to Create a Website For Your Vacation Rental
If you aren’t planning to take direct bookings, then a Wix vacation rental site will be easy to set up, and should be perfect for your needs. Simply start a free trial, choose a template, and start creating your website.
If you are planning to take direct bookings, you have a couple different options:
Option 1: Use the Wix Hotels booking plugin. Wix Hotels is meant to manage your iCal vacation rental booking calendar. However, it appears that it isn’t currently well managed or reviewed, so we don’t recommend using Wix Hotels at this time.
Option 2 (Recommended): Use a third-party booking engine and channel manager like Lodgify or OwnerRez. An easy way to add bookings to your Wix vacation rental website is to add a Lodgify booking widget (or an OwnerRez booking widget) or link your Wix website to a direct booking website using any one of these channel managers. These channel managers will seamlessly integrate your website with Airbnb, VRBO, and other OTAs you choose to use.
