AvantStay Unlocked: Powerful Vacation Rental Marketing and Distribution 

Promoting your vacation rental home on online travel agencies (OTAs) like Airbnb or Vrbo is one of the easiest ways to reach more travelers and drive more bookings. However, many short-term rental owners don’t realize that these platforms, along with Booking.com and Tripadvisor, are just the tip of the distribution iceberg (there are over 400 OTAs!).  

AvantStay’s marketing and distribution capabilities go far beyond OTA promotion—we also leverage the power of social media and top influencers, leading brand and corporate partnerships, and a guest network that we’ve built over time. With our industry-leading reach, powerful social presence, and renowned partnerships you’ll connect with more guests, land more bookings, receive higher ratings, and increase your revenue.

Professional listings and distribution

When you partner with AvantStay for vacation rental management, we handle every step of your listing creation and promotion to get your home maximum exposure. Our in-house photographers and stylists collaborate to capture every aspect of your home, amenities, and key revenue drivers during a complimentary professional photo shoot.

Next, we create an aspirational, bespoke listing built to show off your home to the world. Our Listings & Distribution team has cultivated strong relationships with leading online travel agencies, which allows us to enhance your property’s listing performance against market competitors. Your listing is optimized for visibility and conversion across more than 65 distribution channels, including:

Top-performing OTAs

  • Airbnb
  • Vrbo
  • Booking.com
  • Expedia
  • TripAdvisor

Exclusive access to premium OTAs

  • Homes & Villas by Marriott International
  • Luxury Villas & Homes
  • LaCure
  • Luxury Retreats
  • Plum Guide

Besides these top-performing distribution channels, over 40% of AvantStay guest bookings come through our website, which has seen a 172% increase in booking volume year over year. Our strong brand equity, creative marketing strategies, and high repeat-guest rates are key drivers of our direct bookings.

National hospitality brand

Our elevated brand with a focus on experiential group stays resonates with travelers everywhere. Further, our responsive and guest-centric customer service delivers a consistent, premium experience that makes guests want to book again and again.

Elevated brand standards

Delivering a consistent, first-class vacation experience for every guest is the standard at which we operate every day. We ensure that each home is stocked with anything guests might need during their stay, including an array of high-quality consumables and thoughtful localized welcome packages. 

In addition, guests can use our app to request upgrades and experiences like fridge stocking, schedule mid-stay cleans, book a private chef or in-home massage, and more. This level of service leads to more five-star reviews, repeat guests, and ultimately more bookings.

Powerful social presence 

Besides distribution across popular booking sites, we tap into the power of social media to promote our homes to travelers who are eager to plan their next vacation. With over 300,000 combined followers, your home will be featured across popular social platforms (Instagram, TikTok, etc.) to our highly engaged audiences. We also work with leading influencers to further extend this reach and drive more bookings. 

Partnered with the best

Our in-house Partnerships team unlocks new opportunities that help source group bookings year-round. Partnerships drive brand engagement, increase the number of value-added services we provide to guests, and improve distribution and reach.

Value-added services & in-home brand partnerships

We enhance the guest experience by offering exclusive in-home products and experiences that allow us to charge higher ADRs and earn higher ratings. Some of the top brands we work with include Gopuff, Jacuzzi, Daily Harvest, Allianz, and more. 

Corporate partnerships, events, and retreats

We partner with national and local brands to drive guest demand as one of their preferred accommodation brands. We plan and execute corporate retreats and exclusive events (like Coachella brand parties) for companies big and small across the nation. Our corporate offsite and event offerings are a unique service that allows us to expand your home’s distribution to more guests beyond leisurely travelers. 

Amplify your reach with AvantStay 

There’s a lot that goes into managing a successful vacation rental. Running your listings across multiple OTAs and activating a vacation rental marketing strategy is the best way to be sure you maximize earnings, but it can be tedious and complicated. Why not work with an expert who will take charge and give you instant access to all of the top OTAs, national partnerships, and over 300,000 social media users? 

When you partner with AvantStay and leverage our industry-leading reach, you’ll connect with more guests, land more bookings, receive better reviews, and earn more revenue. It also extends beyond the listing and marketing—we pair that with our proprietary dynamic pricing models and in-house Revenue Management team, full-service permitting and compliance support, a software suite that gives you full visibility into your home, and so much more.
