The demand for vacation rentals is growing strongly. Throughout the Player-Hub network, peakwork partners can find a competitive product offer which will be expanded significantly within the upcoming month in order to provide the most complete portfolio for dynamic packaging. Founded in 2006, NextPax serves the vacation rental market by connecting owners, managers and agents to offer, book and update properties throughout all available channels. Updates and bookings are registered instantly and synchronized throughout the network in real-time. Holiday rentals are located in Europe, The America’s and South East Asia and are supplied by a wide range of professional rental agencies, among them Novasol, Vacasol, Sol og Strand, Roompot, Hogenboom, Bungalow.net, etc. The NextPax system contains photos and specifications of the properties for all sales partners.
Erik Engel, founder and CEO of NextPax, states: “The fragmented vacation rental market, with a size of $53 billion consumer turnover in Europe and the US alone, is fast growing. peakwork technology opens a great international sales opportunity with its global distribution platform. Whereas most travel agencies currently are only offering package deals combining resorts and flight tickets, the upcoming solution of peakwork and NextPax allows them to link vacation rentals to flight tickets and thereby to provide endless combinations. This will enable them to tailor to the wishes of travellers more accurately. A win-win situation that seamlessly matches the customer-centred business trend.”
