Tech-enabled hospitality brand brings much-needed consistency to short-term rental market
Las Vegas (August 4, 2021) – Bonotel Exclusive Travel, the leading aggregator and wholesale distributor of both branded and boutique luxury hotel rooms, has partnered with premier next-generation hospitality brand, AvantStay to make its collection of luxury homes and villas available to all of Bonotel’s distribution partners globally.
Pioneering a new level of quality for the short-term rental market, AvantStay delivers a highly curated, customized experience for its guests. AvantStay’s portfolio consists of two-to-twelve bedroom vacation homes featuring advanced technologies and an award-winning experiential design approach as its in-house team designs and optimizes spaces that allows for people to come together for all types of occasions.
“Far too often, rental homes feel like any other backdrop and their hosts often fall short on providing a first-class experience,” said Reuben Doetsch, co-founder of AvantStay. “We are here to change that by setting the new standard for the short-term rental industry. We believe the best accommodations are designed to enhance every aspect of a guest’s travels, which is why we transform beautiful homes into incredible experiences and unforgettable memories.”
AvantStay has launched in seven new markets this year to date, including Cabo San Lucas, its first international market, Hilton Head, Joshua Tree, Vail, Smoky Mountains, Emerald Coast and Hawaii. The company’s portfolio has grown to over 600 homes in the U.S across more than 20 destinations.
“Short-term rentals continue to be popular options for both leisure and business travelers, and we are excited to add AvantStay’s homes and villas to our already vast network of offerings,” said Faisal Sublaban, president and CEO of Bonotel. “With their focus on the customer experience, the founders of AvantStay were able to remove the inconsistencies that exists throughout most of the short-term rental market, which gives their portfolio of properties a consumer friendly, long-term appeal.”
With this agreement, Bonotel has secured preferential rates and offers for its clients, which include Virgin Holidays, TUI, and Bonotel.com. Internova Travel Group, which represents more than 62,000 travel advisors in over 6,000 locations worldwide, will have access to exclusive inventory and higher commissions on AvantStay bookings through its travel agent portal pinSIGHT.
