Automation can streamline your processes and reduce human errors. This use case article will show how Parseur can automate data extraction from property bookings instantly.

The property booking market is growing

In March 2023, Booking.com recorded the most visits to its website, with 555 million visitors.

But the industry has recovered with increased summer travel and the rise of digital nomads around the world.

In 2022, hosts earned up to $14,000 in supplemental income in the US.

What are the best vacation rental sites?

If you are a new host, choosing and listing your properties on the best rental sites is important so as to get the maximum reach and conversions.

  • Airbnb
  • VRBO
  • Booking.com
  • Expedia
  • TripAdvisor
  • Homestay
  • Agoda
  • Kayak

Those are the most popular ones and have the best reviews.

Do you receive (too) many booking confirmation emails?
