Tel Aviv: Property management platform Guesty has announced a direct integration with travel community TripAdvisor Rentals.
The integration is the latest partnership to enhance Guesty’s existing ‘”integration marketplace”, which already boasts integrations with Airbnb, Booking.com and Agoda among others.
Guesty co-founder & CEO Amiad Soto said: “The integration with TripAdvisor Rentals enables our customers to reach even more guests and therefore grow their businesses exponentially. Helping our customers to succeed, in addition to dramatically simplifying the management process of their properties, is our main mission.”
The integration will allow property managers and management companies on TripAdvisor to sync their accounts to the Guesty platform, ensuring all actions can be carried out via Guesty. These include reservations made on TripAdvisor automatically being imported to Guesty, with Guesty’s multi-calendar tool being updated so no manual input is required.
Carla D’Orsi, director of global account services for TripAdvisor Rentals said: “The new integration is two-fold. On the property manager side, many administrative tasks users had to do, such as manually inputting reservations, are eliminated.
“On the traveller side, the new integration makes it easier to enable Instant Book, which is a feature that we know many travellers prefer. Our team is very excited and grateful that the Guesty team has invested the time and resources into improving their connection with TripAdvisor Rentals, which ultimately makes it easier for Guesty users to have success on our platform,” she added.
TripAdvisor Rentals reports that Instant Book leads to a 10 per cent or more rise in bookings, an average 15 per cent increase in revenue and an average 18 per cent uplift in consumer interest. Guesty’s data supports the findings as it shows that use of Instant Book results in an increase in visibility, revenue and the amount of time saved.
In 2019, Guesty is set to forge partnerships with companies that share their goal of providing easy, short-term rental management and positive guest experiences. In doing so, the company will expand upon its “Integrations Marketplace”, which is already home to third-party management solutions such as keyless entry providers, payment processors, dynamic pricing tools, and online travel agencies.
