Advantages for the homeit customer’s integration
The integration between the homeit app (link) and Chekin makes it possible to speed up guest check-in in an even faster, safer and more professional way.
In countries such as Portugal, Spain and Italy, the vacational rental owners are obliged to inform the authorities, within three working days, foreign guest date and also to confirm their identity at the check-in.
The usual method to meet this legal requirement called for some patience on the part of the vacational rental managers as well as their guests: on arrival, guests are asked to fill out a document with their details. Then, the hosting manager has to register the same data in the on SEF – Foreign and Borders Service online portal. Recently, homeit had created a tool for automaticcommunication with the SEF, but Chekin takes the check-in experience to another level, fully integrated with homeit. Chekin allows you to record guest data in a few minutes or automatically submit the form to previously make the online check-in, with several channel managers and PMS integrations. It is also possible to pay the deposit or tourist tax deposit without having contact or travel to the property.
During online check-in, the manager can also set up a procedure to verifying the guest’s identity through selfies. Thus, the homeit digital key can be sent only when these steps are completed, improving the security accommodation access. The sending time email with the link to the homeit key can be configured with several options: at the booking time; 2, 3 or 7 days before check-in; or only when online check-in is done; or even when online check-in is done and there is identity verification using a selfie. It is even possible to customize the email sent to other languages.
In the end you can only wish a great stay to your guests!
