We are proud to announce that we have successfully upgraded our connection with HomeAway.
This new version offers you great benefits:
- Enjoy the benefits of consistent rates! The new and improved nightly rate model that includes rates, fees, discounts, taxes, and policies in the price displayed on HomeAway search, so travelers see a price at search that is consistent with the rates defined in your i-Rent.net account.
- Improve conversion with clear and consistent rates. Up to 50% of travelers who see price inconsistency from search to checkout abandon the booking. Partners around the globe who have adopted this new version have seen an average 11% increased conversion.
- Possibility of distribution to Expedia, Trivago, and KAYAK, at no additional cost to you (Eligibility criteria apply).
- Possibility to access features such as HomeAway’s new MarketMaker™ tool, which provides market data to grow your business and help you keep a leg up on competition (Eligibility criteria apply).
- Future promotional opportunities such as strike-through pricing and discounting.
- Changes are coming to HomeAway. Properties without clear and consistent rates will be displayed differently. Properties with price consistency will continue to show the price in search and those without will show “view details for price” . This is not intended to penalize those without consistency; instead, this is to provide a great traveler experience as they have shown a clear preference for consistent prices. Airlines and hotels have similar pricing display practices, and consumers expect the same from the vacation rental industry.
