MINNEAPOLIS — ResortsandLodges.com, a leading worldwide Resort and Lodge destination travel website, today announced it is partnering with Barefoot Technologies, one of the founding browser-based vacation rental systems in the travel market, in order to provide ResortsandLodges.com travelers access to more than 20,000 vacation rentals.
Founded in 1999, Barefoot was officially the first browser-based vacation rental system on the market. They are currently one of the few systems to offer customer relationship management (CRM) software, social media, document management and the most innovative work order system on the market. They have also attracted more than 20,000 vacation rentals properties, and offer online availability, rates and booking options.
Thanks to the new integrated two-way interface, Barefoot Technologies will be able to publish comprehensive rental details with online rates and availability for ResortsandLodges.com’s nearly 10 million guests to book online. This two-way interface offers Barefoot’s customers a new channel to attract new travelers and will save the property owners time so they don’t have to individually update rates and availability.
“We have an endless pursuit to ensure our travel audience is able to access the largest collection of accommodations across the world and be able to book them online. This ability will offer travelers the chance to create truly memorable vacation experiences. In order to meet our traveler’s demand we are connecting with properties where the availability isn’t typically sold on travel sites we may have become familiar with; Expedia, Priceline, Hotels.com and Travelocity. Our partnership with Barefoot Technologies is very exciting; we will be able to offer our nearly 10 million guests access to book real-time availability with more than 20,000 unique rental properties across North America,” said Ryan Bailey, CEO of ResortsandLodges.com.
“Our customers are always interested in connecting with shopping sites to generate new customers and it is difficult to do so with major OTAs like Expedia, Priceline and Hotels.com because of their traditionally high commission rates. It is exciting to find a company like ResortsandLodges.com that offers a channel that is more feasible for resort and property managers,” said Ed Ulmer, President of Barefoot Technologies.
