(WWT) is pleased to announce direct integration with leading global vacation rental distribution network BookingPal for effortless management of inventory, rates and reservations across distribution channels, saving lodging operators time and increasing property exposure.
Connecting vacation rental operators to over 40 of the most important distribution channels—including VRBO, Google Hotel Ads and Homes & Villas by Marriott—and more than 200 million monthly visitors, the BookingPal channel manager helps properties reach more guests through a single easy-to-use platform. Integration with WebRezPro automates the transfer of property and reservation data between the PMS and BookingPal, improving workflow and accuracy.
“Our connectivity solution is proven to drive significant revenue for our users, and we are eager to be able to partner with companies using WebRezPro.”
— Matt Gurley, Director of Sales & Customer Service at BookingPal
“We are thrilled about our new partnership with WebRezPro. This integration will offer connections for short-term rental managers to popular channels, including VRBO, Homes & Villas by Marriott, Google’s new vacation rental program, and many more popular distribution websites. Boutique hotel operators, inns, and bed & breakfasts will now also have connectivity to channels like VRBO. Our connectivity solution is proven to drive significant revenue for our users, and we are eager to be able to partner with companies using WebRezPro,” said Matt Gurley, Director of Sales & Customer Service at BookingPal.
The two-way integration imports rate and availability updates and pertinent property data from the PMS into BookingPal, and sends reservations coming through BookingPal channels directly to WebRezPro, eliminating the need for property managers to manually duplicate data between systems, and reducing double bookings.
“Our partnership with BookingPal expands our distribution network and connects short-term rental operators to particularly relevant channels, including VRBO, the Marriott system and Google Hotel Ads, making it easier for property managers to manage online inventory across channels at a time when efficiency and visibility are key to recovery from the pandemic,” said Frank Verhagen, President at WWT.
