Welcome to Rentals United

Tabs and Rentals United


Your properties will be pulled from Tabs to Rentals United.

  1. Request sales@rentalsunited.com from Rentals United Sales Team to provide onboarding sheet to hardcode property information from Tabs.
  2. Once you have filled it out correctly, our IT department will hardcode this information and pull properties from Tabs.


Your properties have been pulled from Tabs to Rentals United and are now ready to be connected to our Sales Channels. Any editing of the property information should be done in Tabs. Please bear in mind changes made directly in Rentals United will be overwritten in the next sync unless you uncheck particular checkboxes in your PMS Settings.

Once you are connected to the sales channels, the property information will also automatically be pushed to the channels. When you receive bookings from the sales channels, they will automatically be inserted into Rentals United and then into your Tabs system. If you need any additional help contact Tabs support via e-mail (support@tabs-software.co.uk) who will assist you with the sync from Tabs to Rentals United. New properties are usually pulled within 24 hours.
