US: Travel tech company Monaker Group has added three new travel distributors to search and instantly book from its inventory of contracted vacation rental properties.
It brings the total to five major distributors integrated with the Monaker Booking Engine (MBE), with 10 more currently engaged in the integration process. These global distributors include a hotel consolidator, a travel consolidator and a tour company.
Monaker says it is the first-to-market B2B solution to give them the ability to instantly book commissionable vacation rentals within their existing reservation systems.
As Monaker inventory bookings are instantly confirmed, the vacation rental can be booked along with air, car and other travel reservations as part of a complete package.
Integrated travel distributors and their downstream partners with established travel booking platforms (aggregators, consolidators, online travel agencies and travel agents) can search and book via Monaker’s growing global inventory comprising vacation rental homes, villas, chalets, apartments, condos, resort residences, and even castles. The company is also expecting a significant increase to its available instantly bookable vacation rental inventory by early 2019.
Monaker CEO Bill Kerby said: “These latest integrations broaden the availability of our vacation rental properties to hundreds of thousands of new travel customers. We believe we are on track to have all 15 integrated partners launched into the peak booking season that begins in January each year.
“Once all the 15 initial distributor integrations are completed, we expect to see our vacation rental inventory being instantly bookable by hundreds of travel companies and travel platforms in the tour, cruise, hotel and airline sectors, as well as over 300,000 travel agents globally,” he added.
Monaker says its objective is to deliver innovation to the alternative lodging rental (ALR) market, with its MBE including over a million instantly bookable vacation rental homes, villas, chalets, apartments, condos, resort residences, and castles.
