HomeAway and Rightmove Overseas announce partnership deal

Overseas property portal Rightmove Overseas and holiday rentals website HomeAway have announced a partnership agreement which they say enables them both to provide greater opportunities for existing and prospective holiday home owners and travellers.

As leading websites in their respective industries, this partnership is designed to strengthen HomeAway’s position as a leading holiday rentals portal for holiday home owners and holidaymakers, enabling them to raise awareness of the holiday rental industry to customers buying property abroad.
For Rightmove Overseas, the partnership builds on the comprehensive range of services that they already provide to their customers, allowing them to educate their customers buying property abroad with useful tools, and offer savings for advertising their holiday home with HomeAway.

‘Through the Rightmove Overseas partnership, we will be able to help our home owners gain useful insight into the ever changing overseas market, and provide discounts for owners looking to sell their property on Rightmove Overseas,’ said Erica Chang, senior regional director for HomeAway.

‘Furthermore, we will be giving Rightmove Overseas agents and home owners a platform that allows them to easily rent out properties to holidaymakers from all over the world. Our aim continues to be to provide the largest and most diverse holiday home selection to holidaymakers in the UK and partnering with Rightmove Overseas is an enormous leap forward to help us achieve our goal,’ added Chang.

Chris Please, partnerships manager for Rightmove Overseas said the partnership will complement its existing international sales offering. ‘We have exciting plans for future development as part of our collaboration. The partnership will also be great for our customers all over the world who will benefit from special offers and discounted rates for their holiday rental properties,’ he explained.
