US: Premier vacation rental marketplace Fetch My Guest has announced the launch of the Stays Group vacation rental network.
In partnership with well respected vacation rental associations, Stays Group will represent regional vacation rental marketplaces that serve travellers in North America.
Members of the network have been serving the vacation rental community for an average timespan of 20 years. The industry leading standards developed by the membership are time-tested and have always put the vacation traveller first, according to Vince Perez, CEO of Fetch My Guest, partner at Beach House Rentals and Stays Group member.
Perez said: “Stays Group members offer the vacation rental traveller clean and well-maintained properties, on the ground experts with local knowledge and the industry’s best price guarantee.
“Unlike Airbnb, we value the relationships between vacation rental travellers and their professional hosts. This ensures that your family and friends will always get the attention they deserve from the local experts.
“You will not find a better offer from Airbnb, Vrbo or Booking.com for these beautiful properties in some of the most sought after destinations,” he added.
Stays Group members will be the exclusive providers of each property in the marketplace. The exclusivity is important to vacation rental travellers as they understand the importance of having flexible cancellation policies, real time local information and the best price guarantee.
Perez said: “Today, our members have taken a big step towards creating their own platform and distinguishing their vacation rental businesses as they lead the future of #bookdirect for the coming generations.
“For the past few years, many corporate backed interests have interfered with the valued relationships we have nurtured with our guests and our local communities. I am proud to work alongside our membership as we continue to grow and find innovative ways to give the guest unfettered access to our respected brands.
“Stays Group represents a trusted network of collective brands dedicated to one singular mission; to continue to serve the best interest of our guests and local communities,” he added.
