We’ve Still Got It! Vrbo Names Lodgify as Preferred Connectivity Partner

We’ve still got it, so allow us to flaunt it! Lodgify has once again been chosen as a Preferred Connectivity Partner by leading online travel agency Vrbo, recognizing our high-quality connectivity to help vacation rental businesses grow.

This announcement is great news for us, of course, as it confirms the credibility and reliability of our property management system. However, more importantly, it is great news for our clients – vacation rental hosts and property managers globally.

In our Vacation Rental Industry Report for Quarter 2, 2022, Lodgify forecasts that the ADR on Vrbo is expected to grow at 32%, compared to Expedia at 30%, Airbnb at 17% and Booking at 18% respectively.

This means, if your property is listed with Vrbo, as it should be, you can expect a handsome increase in bookings from Vrbo in the coming months.

Seamless two-way integration boosts bookings

Through Lodgify’s channel manager, we offer our clients seamless integrations with Vrbo, which means hosts and property managers can easily take advantage of the expected rise in bookings from Vrbo.

In addition, our industry report predicts an increase in direct bookings, so managing bookings from your own site, as well as through the major OTAs, couldn’t be easier through Lodgify´s advanced channel connectivity.

  • Increased API connectivity (our connection seamlessly integrates booking rates, guest data, descriptions, and other information.

What it means to be a Vrbo Preferred Partner

Vrbo’s  Preferred Connectivity Program recognizes excellence in connectivity to the Vrbo platform, and efforts in helping  lodging properties and vacation rental property managers grow their businesses

There are many channel management tools that integrate with Vrbo but don’t deliver in terms of seamless connection, lag times for synchronization and other technical issues.

Vrbo’s Preferred Partner Program recognizes preferred software partners that offer a fully integrated connectivity solution for hosts, such as Lodgify. Some of the minimum requirements for partnership are:

  • Full API integration to a high standard with advanced tools and features
  • Quality technical connection to Vrbo with reliable user experience
  • Maintaining a strong performance on Vrbo and regularly engaging with the Vrbo team to optimize

Lodgify also maintains preferred and premier partnership status with Booking.com and Airbnb.

We strive  to improve our product and integration with other solutions to present our clients with the best possible software solution in the industry, so we are happy to be recognized by the major OTAs in this way.  This enables us to help you grow and manage your vacation rental business.
