Hostaway, the leading all-in-one vacation rental management platform, is thrilled to announce that it has been awarded the highest possible recognition by Airbnb, Booking.com, and Vrbo in each Online Travel Agent’s (OTA) 2023 partner programs.
Hostaway is the only combined Property Management System (PMS) and Channel Manager to hold this ‘triple crown’ designation, in addition to being directly integrated with Expedia, Dtravel, Hopper Homes, and Homes & Villas by Marriott International, with an API connection to Google Travel going live soon.
The announcement comes hot off the launch of Airbnb’s new ‘Preferred Plus’ status to software providers, which has only been awarded to a select xx companies.
To become an Airbnb Preferred Plus Partner, Vrbo Elite Partner, or Booking.com Premier Partner, vacation rental software companies must exceed specific performance and functionality benchmarks. These can include the quality of their technical connection to each channel, the reliability of the user experience, and the continuous development of software.
Requirements for these programs have changed from year to year as the industry – and the traveler – has evolved, but Hostaway has consistently been a top-performing partner of each OTA since they launched their own programs.
Marcus Räder, CEO of Hostaway, said: “This is a proud moment for Hostaway because it shows how successful our team has been in providing an excellent service to our customers and responding to developments in technology and the wider travel industry over the years. We want to thank all our OTA partners for their trust in us as we continue our mission to help the global vacation rental industry grow.”
