BARCELONA – Rentals United announces a new partnership with KAYAK, leading travel search engine. Rentals United is the first global-scale vacation rental channel manager that KAYAK is partnering with, utilising their 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.
Connecting partners to a global metasearch network
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 continue to grow.
Metasearch platforms have been well placed in these challenging times where travelers’ needs are quickly shifting. Many people are seeking out the best value ways to quench their thirst for travel, and metasearch allows travelers to compare prices to get the best deals.
Rachel Hafner, VP Global Hotels & Revato comments, “As the world’s leading travel search engine, we remain focused on providing an excellent accommodation experience for all travelers. With this partnership, we can connect Rentals United partners with our global network of metasearch brands and offer travelers a broad range of vacation rentals in high demand locations, both for short getaways and long stays.”
James Burrows, CEO of Rentals United comments, “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.”
