VacayHome-SiteMinder partnership opens new doors for vacation rental property managers

SiteMinderTwo weeks after revealing its rebrand, VacayHome Connect, the leading Chicago-based vacation rental home distribution provider and one of the largest global providers of instantly-bookable vacation rental inventory, has announced it has partnered with SiteMinder, the global hotel industry’s leading cloud platform, to enable mutual customers to capitalize on the booming $100 billion vacation rental market.

Through the partnership, SiteMinder’s vacation rental, resort and serviced apartment customers receive direct access to VacayHome Connect’s booking platform and the ability to distribute their inventory through exclusive VacayHome Connect distribution channels that include HomeAway and VRBO.

ÒThe vacation rental industry is exploding across the globe,Ó said Sunil Aluvila, founder and CEO of VacayHome Connect. ÒProperty managers, resort developers, serviced and corporate apartment suppliers alike are now interested in offering their accommodations through new distribution channels to effectively compete and gain access to millions of consumers who are looking to non-traditional accommodation for their leisure and business travel.

ÒVacayHome Connect’s robust platform offers partnerships with major distribution channels globally as well as unique private distribution channel options that represent an entirely new source of bookings. These channels, plus our many partners, offer SiteMinder’s customers an alternative option to promote their rental inventory.Ó

ÒUnderpinning SiteMinder’s partnership with VacayHome Connect is the recognition that while today’s traveler is in constant pursuit of a new experience, there are few options available to owners of vacation rental properties and serviced apartments to keep up with demand through integrated booking and distribution technology,Ó said Fig Cakar, SiteMinder’s Managing Director Ð the Americas. ÒWe are pleased to partner with VacayHome Connect to fill this need.Ó

ÒThe partnership between SiteMinder and VacayHome Connect has enabled us to easily gain access to HomeAway Network and VacayHome Connect’s private channels by leveraging the combination of VacayHome Connect’s full service distribution solution along with our existing use of SiteMinder’s platform,Ó said Ryan Nindorf, Senior Director, Global Revenue Management, a major distribution partner of VacayHome Connect. ÒAs a result, we are pleased to have been able to capture incremental revenue.Ó

VacayHome Connect announced its rebrand from VacayStay Connect in late June.
