Texas-based online marketplace for vacation rentals HomeAway Inc (NASDAQ: AWAY) said it has expanded its distribution partnership with European managed vacation rental company Interhome AG to add new listings to HomeAway´s network via its pay-per-booking product.
The firm said it expects that this partnership will add tens of thousands of online bookable vacation rentals to HomeAway in the coming months.
Properties will first appear on its US sites, HomeAway.com and VRBO.com, and European sites, FeWo-direkt and HomeAway.co.uk.
Interhome´s properties will later become available on additional sites around the world, like Abritel.fr in France, as HomeAway rolls out its pay-per-booking functionality.
To date, this is the largest distribution partnership enabled by HomeAway´s pay-per-booking product for property managers, which launched earlier this month.
Founded in 1965, Switzerland-based Interhome is the operator of 15 regional subsidiaries and is one of Europe´s premier providers of professionally managed vacation rentals worldwide, with a concentration of listings in France, Italy, Spain and Switzerland.
HomeAway, Inc. based in Austin, Texas, is an online marketplace for the vacation rental industry, with sites representing over 773,000 paid listings of vacation rental homes in 171 countries.
