STAAH-HomeAway Partnership Set To Benefit Holiday Rentals

The two-way connection will allow property managers to synchronize their property data and increase their online reach.

Leading cloud distribution platform, STAAH has announced its partnership with HomeAway, one of the largest global providers of bookable holiday rental inventory. The connection will enable mutual customers to capitalise on the demand for holiday rentals once global travel restrictions following the COVID-19 pandemic are eased.

We’re proud to partner with HomeAway that does a fantastic job of filling this need.’’

The STAAH-HomeAway connection, which went live at the end of April 2020 has already seen a quick pick-up among property managers keen to back into the game post COVID-19 by expanding their reach via multiple online booking platforms. The connection saves property managers hours in managing updates manually across platforms while avoiding possible errors.

“ With daily rates and availability management taken care of, property managers can focus on growing their business,” says Tarun Joukani, Commercial Director at STAAH. “And here, STAAH’s detailed insights come in handy, allowing property managers to make informed decisions around revenue.”


The STAAH platform comprises of cloud-based channel management, booking engine, website builder, online reputation management, and a gift voucher management platform. With more than 10,000 partners globally, STAAH’s meteoric rise is attributed to its sound technology and high reach combined with a user-first approach that makes it very simple to use.
