Announcing Cloudbeds’ industry-leading integration with Airbnb
WYSE Travel Confederation member, Cloudbeds, officially announced yesterday a seamless new integration with Airbnb. The real-time connection between Cloudbeds’ property management suite and Airbnb opens the doors for hospitality professionals to connect to millions of guests in Airbnb’s global community.
With the new partnership, Cloudbeds’ clients who meet Airbnb’s hospitality standards can list on Airbnb and manage availability, pricing, and bookings directly from one interface. The joint technology allows for multiple units of inventory to appear on Airbnb, allowing guests to more easily find the perfect space they’re looking for.
“We are thrilled to work with Airbnb and enable incredibly unique hospitality professionals to reach millions of travellers around the world,“ said Sebastien Leitner, Director of Global Partnerships at Cloudbeds. “With this new technology, our clients will save time and can focus on creating unforgettable guest experiences – a win for both travellers and hospitality operators alike.”
From luxurious European farmsteads like Barono Vila to vibrant boutique properties like Casa Grandview in West Palm Beach, Cloudbeds powers local hospitality businesses in more than 135 countries, helping them become more productive and profitable. These hospitality professionals rely on Cloudbeds’ software and channel manager, myallocator, to run their operations and create personal guest experiences every day.
Airbnb has special requirements for boutique hotels and B&Bs. Cloudbeds strongly encourage their customers to consider if they meet Airbnb’s requirements before beginning an application. Cloudbeds’ properties can continue to use their iCal connection between Cloudbeds and Airbnb without going through this approval process, or they can choose to apply for the new API connection here.
Cloudbeds creates cloud-based hospitality management software that simplifies the working lives of professional property owners, operators, and employees. Tens of thousands of hotels, hostels, vacation rentals, and groups in over 135 countries trust Cloudbeds’ award-winning software. With over 300 partnered OTAs, travel tech partners, and over $3 billion in room sales annually, Cloudbeds connects to more marketplaces than any software in the hospitality industry. Founded in 2012, Cloudbeds has expanded to hundreds of team members in 31 countries who altogether speak 17 languages.
