Worldwide: HotelRunner, the leading sales channel management platform and B2B network for hotels and OTAs, has launched an integrated technology development with Airbnb.
The two-way API connectivity will allow host to list their property rooms on Airbnb directly, so they can reach out to the rest of the Airbnb community.
Properties that use HotelRunner will have the chance to connect to the Airbnb platform, upload content, update rates and availability and receive bookings in real-time from one single interface. Hotels that meet Airbnb’s required hospitality standards will also be able to list their rooms on the platform automatically without manually entering information.
Riza Kaynak, director of partner success at HotelRunner, said: “At HotelRunner, we are always in search of new sales and marketing platforms globally to provide new sales channels to our hotels, helping them increase their revenues and profitability.
“As a platform with more than hundreds of millions of guest arrivals all-time and over 5 million listings worldwide, Airbnb is a perfect platform for our properties with a potential of reaching millions of guests using Airbnb every day.
“We are very happy to announce this innovative technology solution which will give our accommodation partners the opportunity to be listed on Airbnb with one click. We are planning to on-board thousands of properties from all over the world to Airbnb, using our proven experience in acquiring new accommodation partners,” he added.
HotelRunner has more than 49,000 rental accommodation partners from 193 countries across the world, ranging from small and boutique hotels, bed and breakfasts, and daily rentals to enterprise hotels and chains. The partnership will allow properties to save time and focus on enhancing and improving guest stays at the accommodations.
