WESTON, FL – July 29, 2020 – Monaker Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKGI), a technology leader in the travel and vacation rental markets, has completed the integration of its Monaker Booking Engine (MBE) with its Maupintour.com travel website.
Building upon a 70-year legacy of personalized travel and customized tour packages, Maupintour.com can now offer its clients access to Monaker’s global inventory of alternative lodging rentals (ALRs) matched to the individual needs of the traveler, from vacation homes, resort residences and apartments, to villas, chalets and even castles.
Since Monakers’s ALR reservations are sourced from property managers, they can be instantly confirmed using the Monaker Booking Engine, rather than waiting hours or even days for property owners to respond. This allows the rental to be seamlessly booked alongside air, car, and other travel reservations as a complete package.
“Cross-leveraging our proprietary MBE technology allows us to further enhance our high-touch luxury travel platform with highly personalized alternative lodging reservations,” commented Tim Sikora, Monaker’s chief information officer and chief operating officer. “Adding ALRs to Maupintour is timely given how ALR bookings industry-wide are trending upward in spite of the pandemic. We have also been seeing an increase in MBE searches and booking activity by our other connected distributors, which we believe reflects how ALRs present a more desirable lodging option since they offer the safety, flexibility and comfort of home.”
Additional features for Maupintour and the Maupintour.com website are being planned for release this fall, including booking of private air travel, additional inventory of ultra-luxury vacation home rentals, and access via content-rich Apple iOS and Google Play mobile apps.
