Update August 2017: Avantio has been working closely with HomeAway since the launch of the HomeAway connection within the Avantio Channel Manager. HomeAway is now one of the Preferred Partners of Avantio within the Channel Manager, meaning that the connection is included within the Channel Manager packages with no charges, and as always, we don’t charge any commission on your bookings.
The HomeAway connection has now been refined to offer Avantio clients the benefits of a complete API connection, meaning that all essential property and company details are shared with HomeAway to give your properties the best visibility on HomeAway websites.
HomeAway have published some details on how to best improve the performance of your listing on their websites. These are worth a read to ensure that your agency has all these points covered.
For more details on the HomeAway connection, please see our HomeAway Channel Manager page or details from our HomeAway Preferred Partner launch. We participate in many events throughout the year with HomeAway. If you would like to know more about events near you, please read our events posts within the blog or get in touch with us.
HomeAway is the world leader in vacation rentals with over 1 million listings in 190 countries. Through their global network of sites, owners and property managers offer vacation homes that provide travelers with unforgettable experiences and benefits, including more room to relax and added privacy, for less than the cost of traditional hotel accommodations.
