Hotels and serviced apartments stand to benefit more easily from the growing trend toward rental accommodation in the vacation and business sectors, with the announcement of a partnership between RentalsCombined.net and cloud-based platform SiteMinder.

RentalsCombined.net, one of the largest providers of instantly bookable, professionally managed properties, has made its booking and distribution platform available to hotel and rental accommodation customers of SiteMinder, one of the global hotel industry’s leading cloud platforms for attracting, reaching and converting guests online. The agreement provides the two companies’ mutual customers the opportunity to promote their self-catered units – such as hotel suites, condo-hotels, and apart-hotels – on RentalsCombined.net and capitalize on the growing global trend toward rental accommodation, boosted by the sharing economy, in the vacation and business sectors.

SiteMinder has more than 23,000 hotel customers located in more than 160 countries across six continents.

“The rental accommodation market is booming, and hotels and serviced apartments with self-catering units are keen to highlight their unique offerings in this sector and compete against the growing competition they face,” said Nico Nicholas, chief executive of RentalsCombined.net.

“Our platform, together with our many partnerships with blue-chip travel management companies, provides SiteMinder’s customers with an alternative channel to promote these rentals. Moreover, it offers guests peace of mind by guaranteeing the same high-quality service they expect to receive from hotels, including financial protection and instant booking confirmation.”

SiteMinder’s managing director – the Americas, Fig Cakar, said, “Demand for the rental market is fast-growing and the addition of RentalsCombined.net to SiteMinder’s expansive network of distribution partners has enhanced the global reach our mutual customers can now achieve through this alternative channel.”

Every property in the RentalsCombined.net database is inspected by established and approved property management companies to ensure standards are consistently high. On booking an apartment or villa, travel specialists and their clients receive immediate confirmation, as well as 100 percent financial protection on all transactions via full TTA (Travel Trust Association) membership.
