In the future through this program, Diamond Resorts members will be able to use points to book vacation rental properties via an online platform that shows real-time availability. In addition, VacayStay Connect will make various vacation home opportunities available to Diamond Club members during exclusive booking windows.
For professional Property Managers this means they now have the ability to showcase their properties to Diamond Resorts members who cannot be reached through traditional channels.
Sunil Aluvila, of VacayStay Connect, commented: “As vacation rental homes become an increasingly popular accommodation choice for leisure travel, we are pleased to work with Diamond Resorts International to offer vacation homes to their members as another valuable vacation alternative. Our experience providing full service distribution solutions for professional property managers and our deep understanding of the shared-ownership industry was instrumental in creating this innovative solution.”
According to David Palmer, President and Chief Executive Officer, Diamond Resorts International®, “We are continually seeking new ways to deliver a hassle-free, memorable vacation experience to our members, and with user-friendly booking options and Diamond member exclusive booking windows in attractive locations, we believe that the vacation home options provided by VacayStay Connect will enhance THE Club membership benefits. To deliver this product, we sought a company with extensive experience with professional property managers and the necessary technology and support to allow our members to shop and book homes in real-time. Since VacayStay Connect has done an excellent job delivering incremental revenue for our own rental inventory through their distribution solution, we selected them to provide the technology and expertise to make our enhanced vacation home program a success.”
The opportunity to list properties is only available to Property Managers who use The VacayStay Connect Complete Vacation Rental Distribution Solution, through which Property Managers gain exposure to leading public websites, plus exclusive, and attractive channels, like Diamond Resorts, not available through other distribution providers.
