Hostaway reaches marketplace integration milestone

Canada: All-in-one vacation rental software Hostaway has announced that it has reached a milestone of over 100 integrations in its marketplace.

Each integration has been purposely selected to provide Hostaway’s short-term and vacation rental customers with the most comprehensive choice of solution-focused apps in the industry. From OTA channel integration to accounting, home automation to dynamic pricing, each marketplace integration offers the opportunity for managers and enterprise clients to custom-build their own solution through Hostaway’s open API.

Some of the most recent partnerships in the marketplace include InsuraGuest, ICND, DPGO, Breezeway and Operto. Hostaway has also built strong relationships with OTAs in the market, including being a preferred partner of Vrbo since 2021 and Booking.com since 2018.

The marketplace sits alongside Hostaway’s PMS and channel manager with customer support. Technology remains at the core of the Hostaway experience: the company grew from deep tech expertise with a vision to build the best vacation rental software on the market and now serves customers with property portfolios ranging from one to 10,000.

Marcus Rader, CEO and co-founder of Hostaway, said: “This milestone in the growth of our Hostaway marketplace shows our commitment to supporting vacation rental businesses to scale up through our software. With our tools at their disposal, property managers can streamline activities, achieve their goals and improve their bottom line in order to grow scalable, profitable businesses.

“We also help new technologies enter this fast-growing market through integration, marketing and sales,” he added.

Dylan Robinson from Haven Vacation Rentals said: “Our team has been very happy with Hostaway. It has a robust set of tools and they are constantly releasing new ones.

“They regularly take feedback from us as to what features would serve our team. I currently have just over 50 properties but expect it to be over 150 by the end of 2021.

“We needed a robust, reliable software to scale that quickly and we’ve found that with Hostaway,” he added.

Lisa Chen, vice president, global lodging connectivity and solutions, Expedia Group, said: “Hostaway’s commitment to delivering value to vacation rental property managers distinguishes them as an exceptional software solution. I congratulate the whole team at Hostaway on their recognition as a preferred connectivity partner with Vrbo and for delivering robust technology to their customers that improves traveller experiences.”

Hostaway’s platform, with customer support, helps its users manage marketing, sales, accounting, reporting, payment and communication for their vacation and short-term rentals in one place.
