Rentals United announces partnership with Kid & Coe

Barcelona: Vacation rental channel manager Rentals United has announced a new partnership with family-friendly luxury travel platform Kid & Coe.

Offering 1200 properties in 50 countries worldwide, Kid & Coe is a “luxury meets family-friendly” booking site offering homes, rentals, house swaps and hotels in 50 countries, and was founded by Zoie Kingsbery Coe.

After travelling the world with her DJ husband and children, Kingsbery Coe discovered that there was a lack of options for well-travelled parents who prioritised design and did not want to give up the luxury they had enjoyed in their previous, child-free life.

Eight years ago, she created Kid & Coe and since then, the company has set out to make travel more joyful for families. It also handpicks the properties listed on the platform based on style, comfort and kid-friendly amenities.

The new partnership between Kid & Coe and Rentals United will allow property managers to get their properties in front of a new audience of discerning guests who do not book through general booking platforms. Property managers will also have the opportunity to attract reliable, high-value bookings from families without risking last-minute cancellations and illegal parties.

The partnership with Rentals United will help Kid & Coe continue their global expansion, as currently, demand for their properties far exceeds their supply.

Zoie Kingsbery Coe, founder of Kid & Coe, said: “A distribution integration is something we have been targeting for years, so we are thrilled to have found a great partner in Rentals United and can’t wait to curate more gorgeous family-friendly properties.”

James Burrows, Founder and CEO of Rentals United, comments, “Partnering with Kid & Coe is a great move for us. As a global channel manager, we are excited to add Kid & Coe to our selection of luxury channels with the added benefit of attracting reliable bookings from travelling families that no other channel offers. Having Kid & Coe as a partner will elevate our clients’ strategy and assist in increasing their revenues.”

The Rentals United network consists of advanced connections to the large OTAs, top-performing niche sites, and book direct websites in order to help businesses master marketing, gain competitive advantage, and optimise growth strategies.

Rentals United also secured the award for Best channel manager at the 2022 Shortyz Awards this week, held at Skyline London.
