WESTON, FL – February 19, 2019 – Monaker Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKGI), a technology leader in the travel and vacation rental markets, today reported it has contracted with six more established travel partners to integrate with the Monaker Booking Engine (MBE) and have access to Monaker’s instantly-bookable 2.6 million vacation rental properties.
The addition of these six new travel partners expands the company’s B2B travel distribution network to 30 contracted partners, nine of which have already completed integrations and starting to use MBE.
“Since connecting our next-gen MBE to the first travel partners late last year, there has been an encouraging increase in daily inventory searches and bookings through our platform,” commented Monaker CEO Bill Kerby. “The six new contracts reported today continue to expand our global distributor network through well-established travel brands across dozens of countries through partners specializing in travel offerings and accommodations for their customers.”
Monaker’s integrated travel distributors and their downstream partners, with their established travel booking platforms (aggregators, consolidators, online travel agencies and travel agents), can select from Monaker’s sizeable global vacation rental inventory comprising homes, villas, chalets, apartments, condos, resort residences, and even castles.
With the MBE Application Program Interface (API), Monaker provides its integrated travel distributors and their downstream partners with the ability to book commissionable vacation rentals within their existing reservation systems. Because Monaker inventory bookings are instantly confirmed, rather than waiting hours or even days for property owners to respond, the vacation rental can be seamlessly booked alongside air, car and other travel reservations as a complete package.
