HomeAway partners with Maxxton
November 30 2016
The partnership initiative for the serviced apartment sector builds on the existing relationship between the companies in the leisure sector. Maxxton will act as an integrated channel manager which means that all Maxxton clients will now be able to advertise their inventory on the sites of the HomeAway network.
The global network of HomeAway brands allows owners and property managers to reach a large travel interested audience which will drive additional bookings to their properties, says the company.
The partnership includes the serviced apartment-provider's technology integration on HomeAway which enables the vacation rental expert to offer a unique unit-type connection, allowing accommodation providers with inventory at an accommodation type level to list their properties on its sites.
"The biggest hurdle so far for a serviced apartment provider in using HomeAway as a channel was technology. Our direct connection makes experimentation easier, our clients are now able to push inventory and receive bookings from HomeAway at the click of a button," said Séverine Obertelli, head of sales and marketing EMEA for Maxxton.
