The direct booking disrupter announces a pivotal integration, empowering hosts in 120 countries to stop diverting profits to third-party booking sites.
UK – After Airbnb put 2022 down as its most profitable year yet, book direct powerhouse Boostly continues to make waves in the short-term rental industry with a new Beds24 partnership that gives it access to an additional 112 international markets.
From today, property managers using the Beds24 channel manager in 120 different countries can save thousands in Airbnb commission fees each year by generating direct bookings through Boostly.
The strategic partnership enables hosts in nations such as Chile, Greece and India to sync property listings, live booking rates, booking availability, and property information from the Beds24 PMS onto a Boostly direct booking WordPress website.
To date, Boostly has been used by property managers in 8 countries worldwide, including the UK, US, Jamaica, Canada, France and Mexico, but today marks a milestone for the direct booking disruptor as it breaks into new markets.
This year alone, Boostly has generated £4m in direct bookings for its clients, with property managers and hosts making, on average, £16.6k in revenue per website, representing an ROI of 655% in just 12 months. Partnering with Beds24 is one more step towards meeting the company’s goal of helping one million hosts cut their reliance on Airbnb.
Mark Simpson, Founder of Boostly, commented: “This is going to be a huge year for the book direct movement as hosts and travelers grow tired of extortionate fees. For us, this partnership couldn’t have come at a better time. It will open the door for Boostly to markets catering to hundreds of millions of travelers and is a really important cornerstone of our expansion plans.”
Annette Morgenroth, CMO Beds24, commented: “We are pleased to welcome Boostly as our partner. Having a seamless integration with a service that allows our customers to create beautiful vacation rental websites which will drive direct bookings directly from their content in Beds24 is a perfect complement to our technology.”
