21•01•19 Welcome to the latest Short Term Rentalz weekly newsletter!


• The headline story from this week was the news that RedAwning has announced an integration with global hotel search travel booking platform Trivago. 


The platform allows travellers to compare over 2.5 million hotels and alternative accommodations in over 190 countries. Property managers across the RedAwning network will also now be able to reach out to online travellers who search for accommodation via Trivago.


Trivago works with various booking engines worldwide, including online travel agencies, hotel chains and individual hotels. The integration will also add 80,000 RedAwning vacation rentals, condos, apart-hotels and town homes to the global travel search platform.


Trivago head of strategy and investor relations Elie Matta, said: "We are excited to add RedAwning’s properties to our platform."


RedAwning CEO and founder, Tim Choate, said: "The intersection of the vacation rental and hotel sectors has been a long time coming. Our acquisition of Leavetown, and our partnership with Choice Hotels on their Vacation Rentals by Choice product has positioned us to make this transition.


"We are also looking forward to working with hoteliers and vacation rental managers in the Trivago network looking to expand their reach through our complete suite of services," he added.


If the start to 2019 is anything to go by, we can expect more companies like RedAwning to commit to more key partner integrations this year.
