US: Vacation rental property network RedAwning has partnered with aRes Travel to list instantly bookable vacation rentals directly on local destination marketing organisation websites [DMO].
The New Braunfels, Texas DMO will be the first site on which travellers will be able to search and book RedAwning short-term rentals as the partnership continues to gain traction.
All short-term rental reservations made through the DMO will be powered by the RedAwning booking engine and will automatically sync with respective property manager and individual property owner calendars, ensuring accurate and up-to-date data.
RedAwning will be the merchant of record for all bookings made for short-term rentals through the DMO. This means that they will take all the risk and process all payments for each booking, as well as provide guest support, check-in instructions and a free mobile app to homeowners and guests for them to manage the booking and share guest information.
RedAwning CEO and founder, Tim Choate, said: “This is an incredible opportunity for RedAwning short-term rental managers and owners to gain increased exposure and to get their listings in front of new audiences.
“RedAwning is the first vacation rental network to make alternative accommodation options bookable on local DMO sites and we are looking forward to expanding our presence on DMO websites country-wide via this new partnership with aRes,” he added.
aRes Travel president and CEO, Alan Suchodolski, said: “We are thrilled to team up with RedAwning to bring alternative accommodations to the DMOs we currently work with.
“This partnership is a great opportunity for us to bring more vitality and usability to local DMO sites for travellers looking to research their destination and book their short term rental all in one place,” he added.
