TEL AVIV - Guesty, the property management platform used by short-term property management companies worldwide, has announced a direct integration with TripAdvisor Rentals. This integration is the latest partnership to complement Guesty's existing ‘Integration Marketplace', which already boasts integrations with Airbnb, Booking.com, Agoda and more.
Guesty Co-Founder & CEO Amiad Soto says, “The integration with TripAdvisor Rentals enables our customers to reach even more guests and therefore grow their businesses exponentially. Helping our customers to succeed, in addition to dramatically simplifying the management process of their properties, is our main mission.”
The integration will provide property managers and management companies on TripAdvisor with the ability to sync their accounts to the Guesty platform, ensuring all actions can be accomplished via Guesty. These include reservations made on TripAdvisor automatically being imported to Guesty, with Guesty’s multi-calendar tool updating accordingly - no manual input required.
Carla D’Orsi, Director of Global Account Services for TripAdvisor Rentals says, “The new integration is two-fold. On the property manager side, many administrative tasks users had to do, such as manually inputting reservations, are eliminated. On the traveler side, the new integration makes it easier to enable Instant Book, which is a feature that we know many travelers prefer. Our team is very excited and grateful that the Guesty team has invested the time and resources into improving their connection with TripAdvisor Rentals, which ultimately makes it easier for Guesty users to have success on our platform.”
TripAdvisor Rentals reports that Instant Book results in a 10% or more increase in bookings, an average 15% increase in revenue and an average 18% uplift in consumer interest. Guesty’s data aligns with these findings, showing that use of Instant Book results in an increase in visibility, revenue and time saved.
Looking ahead to 2019, Guesty will continue to forge partnerships with companies that share their goal of facilitating easy, short-term rental management and ultimately, positive guest experiences. In doing so, the company will expand upon its ‘Integrations Marketplace’ which is already home to third-party management solutions such as keyless entry providers, payment processors, dynamic pricing tools, and online travel agencies.
