Whimstay announces Booking.com partnership

US: Last-minute vacation rental bookings platform Whimstay has announced a partnership with Booking.com to expand its property offering. 

The strategic partnership will give Whimstay access to Booking.com’s expansive portfolio of places to stay and significantly diversify the travel options for Whimstay users, as it seeks to reinforce its position as a leader in last-minute vacation rental deals in North America.

As a new Booking.com affiliate, the company wants to provide travellers with an unparalleled assortment of vacation rental accommodations at unbeatable rates, whether planning a spontaneous adventure or a last-minute business trip.

Whimstay CEO David Weiss said: “Partnering with Booking.com is a pivotal step in our journey to capitalise on emerging trends in travel. This expansion of our platform not only broadens our range of offerings but also reinforces our commitment to delivering exceptional value and variety to travellers looking to book on a whim.”

The partnership will enrich the company’s inventory with a variety of property types, including resorts, condos and aparthotels, vacation rental homes, cabins and more. The enhanced selection is set to cater to every preference and budget, setting new benchmarks in the travel industry for flexibility and choice.

The integration of Booking.com’s expansive portfolio with Whimstay’s platform is expected to be operational in the coming weeks.

Focusing on offering the best deals on last-minute bookings, Whimstay targets deals on bookings made less than 30 days prior to arrival and deals anytime throughout the year. It partners with professional property managers to offer exclusive discounts on properties that might otherwise remain unrented, in destinations such as the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.
