Claiming to be the first global-scale vacation rental channel manager to partner with KAYAK, Rentals United will use the company’s direct booking platform, known as Revato. Through KAYAK’s direct booking platform, properties can customise the user experience and display their rates directly, alongside major online travel partners.
By connecting to KAYAK’s direct booking platform, Rentals United partners will now have their products featured across KAYAK, SWOODOO, checkfelix, momondo, Cheapflights, Mundi and HotelsCombined. KAYAK’s travel brands span more than 60 countries and territories and are continuing to grow.
Metasearch platforms have been well placed in these evolving times where travellers’ needs are quickly shifting. As many people seek out the best value ways to quench their thirst for travel, metasearch enables travellers to compare prices to get the best deals.
Rachel Hafner, VP Global Hotels & Revato, said: “As the world’s leading travel search engine, we remain focused on providing an excellent accommodation experience for all travellers. With this partnership, we can connect Rentals United partners with our global network of metasearch brands and offer travellers a broad range of vacation rentals in high demand locations, both for short getaways and long stays.”
Rentals United CEO James Burrows said: “As a global channel manager, partnering with KAYAK is essential to holding true to our philosophy for diversification in marketing distribution for property managers. Having KAYAK as a partner will elevate our clients’ strategy and assist in elevating their revenues.”
