BookingPal announces partnership with Plum Guide

US: Cloud-based travel technology company BookingPal has announced a partnership with exclusive property listing site Plum Guide as one of its first channel partners to access the firm’s channel API.

As a definitive collection of the world’s best holiday homes, Plum Guide independently reviews all the homes available in a destination and selects the top three per cent to feature in its collection in a meticulous curation process. For guests, the collection is a shortcut to the best homes, while for onboarded property managers, it is an opportunity to access the mature and discerning customer type Plum Guide specialises in.

With BookingPal channel API access, Plum Guide will be able to receive all property rates and availability data in real-time across more than 80 property management software integrations. To have properties reviewed, selected, and onboarded by Plum Guide is designed to be a quick and seamless process, so property managers can focus on bookings.

BookingPal founder and CEO, Alex Aydin, said: “Amidst recent growth onboarding more and more property management system partners to use our software solutions, we have received enormous demand from booking sites and OTAs to access this inventory. Opening our channel API was the next logical step to allow our channel partners to access our suppliers through a single integration point.”

Doron Meyassed, founder and CEO of Plum Guide, said: “We are very excited about integrating with BookingPal. It allows us to connect with the very best property managers in the world, both existing clients of ours and also new.

“Our property selection process is thorough and our mission is simple: showcase the very best properties in the world, and deliver high-quality bookings for our property managers,” he added.

To be considered for listing with Plum Guide, property managers must activate their connection in the BookingPal Dashboard and Plum Guide will begin reviewing their properties. If properties have met the Plum Guide standard, the manager will receive a notification shortly thereafter of the next steps.

StayMarquis co-founder Alex Goldstein said: “Now that Plum Guide and BookingPal have completed their integration, we can’t wait to seamlessly list our luxury homes on Plum Guide.

“Our proprietary technology enables us to run the most detailed, quality-driven, on-the-ground operation in the vacation rental industry. This results in standards that make this relationship with Plum Guide an ideal match,” he added.

Michael LeClerc, owner-manager of SkyRun Vacation Rentals, Park City & Deer Valley, said: “We are so excited to be partnering with an industry-leading technology company like BookingPal and Plum Guide, the premium platform for luxury rentals, to offer SkyRun properties to more guests. We look forward to the opportunities this partnership brings.”
