And a bunch of other stuff... back to top
Sure, your new Futurestay website is awesome. But we think you'll like our other ideas, too.
- Never Pay a Dime: Your Futurestay website is free for you to set up and use. Our 10% booking fee is added to the price you want to receive for your property; less than the 12-15% that you'll find on most listing sites.
- No Contracts or Hidden Fees: If for some reason you don't like having a powerful, beautiful and free website you can cancel at anytime; no contracts.
- Free Customer Service: Need help uploading a picture or have a question about your color scheme? Give us a call anytime. Futurestay was built by customer service.
- Future-Proof Website: Futurestay is the last website your rental will ever need. Just like cars and computers get outdated, so do websites. Except for Futurestay. Over time, we add more features and more classic and current style options.
