California: RedAwning.com has redesigned TravelProRentals.com, the travel sector’s premiere commissionable vacation rental booking site, and rebranded it as ‘RedAwning TravelPro’.
The updated site has added a new design and more diverse features, while continuing to offer retail travel advisors and tour operators access to more than 100,000 professionally-managed vacation rental properties around the world.
RedAwning TravelPro allows advisors and operators to work under their own agency/operator trademark, as well as share branded emails and brochures with their clients. Users will be able to confirm reservations and process payments instantly, and earn a commission while doing so (or booking with net rates).
Vacation rental properties operating under RedAwning Group come with a 100 per cent accuracy guarantee, 24/7 guest and advisor support via text, chat or email, standardised contracts and the removal of the obligation to pay security deposits. Thousands of properties are offered with RedAwning’s free cancellation policy that allows advisors to cancel reservations with no penalty if executed within the cancellation window stated.
RedAwning TravelPro director Cindy Brewster said: “The enhancement of our site opens up a great deal of new opportunity for participating travel advisors and our internal property owners and managers.
“RedAwning TravelPro advisors now have exclusive access to our inventory of 100,000 + alternative accommodation options at competitive, commissionable rates. We offer a minimum of ten per cent commission on rental pricing to bonafide travel advisors, embracing this key audience, and differentiating RedAwning TravelPro from the competition.
“An enhanced wholesale operator platform is also in the works, giving additional options to that important audience at net rates, and will be announced very soon. Our in-network property owners and managers benefit by gaining exposure to a new group of consumers who book travel exclusively through their travel advisors around the world.
“It’s a win/win scenario that is true to our tagline, ‘Where Travel Professionals and Vacation Rentals Unite’,” she added.
Registration with RedAwning TravelPro is limited to licensed travel industry professionals and the site is free and password protected. Over 15,000 travel advisors are now reported to have already registered with RedAwning TravelPro, and the demand for further registrations continues to grow.
Innovations within the RedAwning TravelPro website include:
- A minimum ten per cent commission on each booking
- Net rates on approval – limits apply
- Real-time availability and rates on over 100,000 unique accommodations including homes, apartments, condos, apart-hotels, executive suites, resorts, and boutique hotels for leisure, business and corporate clients
- Ability to generate branded brochures, PDF collections and emails for clients
- Folders for storing client information and property portfolios
In July, travel advisors already registered on travelprorentals.com will be automatically directed to the updated site here, where password reset and confirmation of information requests are displayed. Incoming advisors and agencies can request an account or sign up an agency under their network as well.
