Rentals United named Airbnb preferred global partner

Barcelona: Rentals United, the cloud-based channel manager and technology solution for the short-term rental industry, has been appointed as a global preferred partner for Airbnb as part of the platform’s new preferred software partner program.

The program aims to empower and strengthen Airbnb’s relationships with an exclusive group of service providers operating within the accommodations industry and provide an enhanced service for Airbnb hosts and guests.

Rentals United, which currently distributes 60,000 short-term rental listings onto a number of global and niche OTAs, was chosen by Airbnb due to its industry standard software, technically advanced networks, and their utmost reliable API connections.

The company also holds the record for onboarding the most properties to Airbnb in 2018, ahead of its other partners.

Rentals United CEO and founding partner, James Burrows, says; “We are excited to be officially chosen by Airbnb. This partnership has been a very strong source of revenue for our new and existing customers.

“Our joint goals are to maximise our customers’ revenue and efficiency on the Airbnb platform. With year-on-year growth of over 100 per cent, Rentals United is well positioned to help clients and partners take advantage of the phenomenal growth of the vacation rental market,” he added.

With offices in both Barcelona and Warsaw, Rentals United was founded in 2015 when four leading and competing European vacation rental agencies joined forces in order to find an effective solution to automate inventory distribution.
