Almere, theNetherlands –NextPax,​ one of the most advanced channel management technology providers for hotels, resorts and vacation rentals worldwide and ​​ Group, the largest travel distribution channel in Asia have launched the first completely automated connection for vacation rentals. The jointly developed API-connection not only supports prices, availability and bookings, but all other content such as photos and descriptions. The advanced technology allows NextPax and Group to easily build and put operational thousands of vacation rentals at a time.

NextPax was already providing connectivity to thousands of hotels for Group from around the globe. It was a natural extension of the relationship to jointly develop the connectivity and infrastructure to support vacation rentals on the company’s platforms. Group is now able to easily offer vacation rentals to its hundreds of millions of users worldwide. With the new connection, property managers through the NextPax channel management platform, can easily expand their reach to a wide audience that has been virtually impossible to reach in the past. In these difficult times, additional reach to new travelers is critically important.

‘Teaming up with ​Vtrips​’ Steve Milo allowed us to put the first 2,000 US based vacation rental properties on Group platforms,’ explains Erik Engel, CEO of NextPax. ‘These difficult times have further focused us on what we do best, building great technology together with our partners.’
