The partnership marks one of BookingPal’s first ventures with the the launch of its Channel API
IRVINE, Calif. – April 20, 2021 – BookingPal, the global leader in software technology solutions for vacation rental property managers and owners, announces a partnership with exclusive property listing site Plum Guide as one of its first channel partners to access the company’s Channel API.
Plum Guide is the definitive collection of the world’s best holiday homes. Through a meticulous curation process, Plum Guide independently reviews all the homes available in a destination, and selects the top 3% to feature in its collection. For guests, the collection is a shortcut to the best homes. For onboarded property managers, it is an opportunity to access the mature and discerning customer type Plum Guide specialises in.
With BookingPal Channel API access, Plum Guide can now receive all property rates and availability data in real time across more than 80 property management software integrations. This means starting a partnership is just one click away in the BookingPal Dashboard. To have properties reviewed, selected, and on boarded by Plum Guide is a quick and seamless process, so property managers can focus on bookings.
“Amidst recent growth onboarding more and more property management system partners to use our software solutions, we have received enormous demand from booking sites and OTAs to access this inventory,” said Alex Aydin, founder and CEO of BookingPal. “Opening our Channel API was the next logical step to allow our channel partners to access our suppliers through a single integration point.”
“We are very excited about integrating with BookingPal. It allows us to connect with the very best property managers in the world, both existing clients of ours and also new,” said Doron Meyassed, founder and CEO of Plum Guide. “Our property selection process is thorough and our mission is simple: showcase the very best properties in the world, and deliver high quality bookings for our property managers.”
The process to be considered for listing with Plum Guide is simple. Property managers need only to activate their connection in the BookingPal Dashboard and Plum Guide will begin reviewing their properties. If properties have met the Plum Guide standard, the manager will receive a notification shortly thereafter of the next steps.
“Now that Plum Guide and BookingPal have completed their integration, we can’t wait to seamlessly list our luxury homes on Plum Guide,” said Alex Goldstein, co-founder, StayMarquis. “Our proprietary technology enables us to run the most detailed, quality-driven, on-the-ground operation in the vacation rental industry. This results in standards that make this relationship with Plum Guide an ideal match.”
“We are so excited to be partnering with an industry-leading technology company like BookingPal and Plum Guide, the premium platform for luxury rentals, to offer SkyRun properties to more guests. We look forward to the opportunities this partnership brings,” said Michael LeClerc, owner-manager of SkyRun Vacation Rentals, Park City & Deer Valley.

About Plum Guide
Plum Guide is here to solve the biggest problem in travel today: the paradox of choice. If you’re a guest looking to book accommodation online, it’s hard to know where to start, or who to trust. It’s even harder for great homes to stand out from the sea of options out there. So we created the Plum Award. Much like the Michelin star, but for vacation homes. We’re building a trust layer that sits across the industry, by taking a systematic approach to reviewing every home available in a destination. We find and award the top 3% of homes at both value and luxury price points, and list them for a discerning and mature customer base to book. The Plum Award is the global benchmark for quality in the homestay space.
