Hostaway announces partnership with Safely.com

Canada / US: Vacation rental software Hostaway has partnered with insurtech and guest screening solution, Safely.com.

The integration will provide Hostaway’s clients with access to Safely.com’s comprehensive, tailored short-term rental insurance and full guest verification backed up by data analytics – enabling property managers to deliver a first-rate guest experience and to encourage more homeowners to engage with the vacation rental space.

Hostaway claims to be “the fastest-growing vacation rental management solution” in the industry. Its platform enables management of marketing, sales, accounting, reporting, payment and communication all in one place, with a marketplace of over 100 software integrations.

Working with forward-thinking property managers, Hostaway seeks to provide the tools, integrations and customer support to help them grow their business.

Safely.com redefined vacation rental insurance when it launched in 2015 and has since covered over $50 billion of homeowner liability. Its insurtech solutions provide guest screening and tailored insurance to offer peace of mind and protection to homeowners and property managers – particularly at a time when safety and security is paramount within the industry.

Marcus Rader, CEO & co-founder of Hostaway, said: “We are thrilled that we can offer our clients Safely.com’s insurtech solution. Safety and security are a critical part of running any successful vacation rental business, not just to ensure guest satisfaction but to also help in the journey to recruit new homeowners.

“We love to work with property managers who aspire to grow and Safely.com will be a fantastic tool for our customer-base to tap into on that journey,” he added.

Safely.com COO Lui King said: “We are really pleased to partner with Hostaway to enable more property managers to offer safe stays to their guests. It has been great working with their team to make this a reality, particularly during such an exciting time for the brand as they go from strength to strength.

“With the market expanding and changing so rapidly this year, technology solutions like Safely.com and Hostaway give professionals the tools they need to drive a successful business and protect its longevity too,” he added.
