Canada’s vacation rental market now accessible to more property owners as CanadaStays partners with SiteMinder

Toronto, ON - June 29, 2017 – CanadaStays today announces it has partnered with the global hotel industry’s leading cloud platform, SiteMinder, to provide more property owners access to Canada’s vacation rental market. The partnership sees CanadaStays integrated as one of the more than 350 distribution channels available to SiteMinder’s 26,000 customers that are looking for greater visibility online through the world’s top accommodation booking sites.

As Canada's largest vacation rental marketplace, CanadaStays offers both domestic and international travelers the ability to choose between thousands of unique vacation rental properties across Canada, the USA, the Caribbean and Latin America. Properties listed on the platform benefit from added exposure through a partner distribution network that includes HomeAway, VRBO and travelalerts.ca.

"We’re very happy to announce this new partnership with SiteMinder," says Mark Bordo, Founder and CEO at CanadaStays. "With this integration, we’re able to give thousands of property owners using SiteMinder's platform direct access to the millions of travelers who visit CanadaStays every year, while growing the number of vacation rental options available to our travelers.”

SiteMinder is the renowned market leader for accommodation providers looking to streamline the way they manage their availability, rates and inventory online. Over the past year, the reach provided by SiteMinder distribution network has led the company's customers to generate US$16 billion in revenue from more than 43.5 million reservations.

Fig Cakar, Managing Director – the Americas at SiteMinder, says, "Owners of vacation rentals have long been challenged with gaining the same connectivity that owners of more traditional forms of accommodation have had access to. Consumer preferences have clearly shifted, and integration partnerships such as SiteMinder's with CanadaStays are crucial for property owners to navigate through the complexities of online bookings, to ensure their listings on booking sites are continuously up-to-date, and to ultimately secure the modern traveler and guest."
