HomeAway Announces Partnership With Interhome To Add Online Bookable Properties

HomeAway, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWAY), the world’s leading online marketplace for vacation rentals, has expanded its distribution partnership with Europe’s leading professionally managed vacation rental company, Interhome AG, to add new listings to HomeAway’s network via its pay-per-booking product.

It is expected that this partnership will add tens of thousands of online bookable vacation rentals to HomeAway ® in the coming months. Properties will first appear on its U.S. sites, HomeAway.com and VRBO.com, and European sites, FeWo-direkt ® and HomeAway.co.uk. Interhome’s properties will later become available on additional sites around the world, like Abritel.fr in France, as HomeAway rolls out its pay-per-booking functionality.

To date, this is the largest distribution partnership enabled by HomeAway’s pay-per-booking product for property managers, which launched earlier this month.

“We’re excited to have a close integration with one of the largest and oldest companies in the business that enables our customers to receive quotes and book vacation rentals online,” says HomeAway CEO Brian Sharples. “We expect this is the beginning of many relationships with leading property managers, like Interhome, that will ultimately provide family and group vacationers with a high level of service.”

Founded in 1965, Switzerland-based Interhome is the operator of 15 regional subsidiaries and is one of Europe’s premier providers of professionally managed vacation rentals worldwide, with a concentration of listings in France, Italy, Spain and Switzerland.

“Working with HomeAway is a great fit because both companies passionately believe that vacations are not just about where you go, but where you stay,” says Interhome CEO Simon Lehman. “We look forward to helping even more families and groups create lasting memories with a level of service and comfort they’ll never forget.”
