Hostaway named Airbnb preferred partner

Canada: All-in-one vacation rental software Hostaway has been recognised as a new preferred software partner for Airbnb.

The partnership programme is exclusive to leading software providers operating in the global accommodations sector that provide fully integrated solutions for hosts and property managers listing on Airbnb.

Claiming to be “the fastest-growing vacation rental management solution in the industry”, Hostaway successfully exceeded Airbnb’s performance benchmarks to secure recognition as a partner. Built from deep technological expertise, Hostaway’s purpose-built PMS and channel manager are set to provide strong and reliable two-way API connectivity to Airbnb.

Marcus Rader, CEO and co-founder of Hostaway, said: “We are incredibly proud to be chosen by Airbnb as a preferred partner. Our mission is to help our customers grow their business and Airbnb has always played a vital part of achieving that, as preferred partners in turn help Airbnb to continue to elevate the experience of their hosts and guests.

“This has been the culmination of a huge expansion period for us as we celebrate a full recovery from the impact of Covid and more than six months of continued record growth for our business. We want to thank the Airbnb team for helping us get there,” he added.

Working with forward-thinking property managers from around the world, Hostaway provides the tools, integrations and customer care to help them drive efficiencies, generate more revenue and ultimately grow their business. Marketing, sales, accounting, reporting, payment and communication can be managed and streamlined all in one place.

Hostaway operates globally with offices in Canada, Finland, Spain, Australia and the USA.

In the past two months, the company has partnered with end-to-end guest experience platform Duve to elevate the overall guest experience and with insurtech and guest screening solution, Safely.com, to deliver a first-rate guest experience and to encourage more homeowners to engage with the vacation rental space.
