Scotts Valley, CA (PRWEB) January 17, 2006
Rent One Online, provider of innovative rental management and travel solutions, announced they have formally begun writing checks and sending them monthly to vacation rental managers, resorts and real estate agencies for referral fees on travel services purchased by guests along with vacation property reservations. In addition to providing powerful vacation rental management software, Rent One Online is also a licensed travel agency (CST# 2076314-40), and via their travel services platform, they enable their customers to market travel services in the context of vacation rental reservations, both phone-based and on the Web.
Rent One Online is unique because they actually sell and process the travel services so there is no paperwork or administration for the rental manager. Many travel services result in an agency referral fee from the travel supplier paid to Rent One Online; Rent One Online shares this fee with its customers.
Rent One Online has already achieved success selling travel protection policies and has been sending checks monthly to its customers. Bobby Douglas, owner of BDZi Vacation Rentals (BDZiVacationRentals.com) in Flagler Beach, Florida is delighted with the revenue sharing model, “Not only has Rent One Online enabled me to quadruple the number of properties I manage, but I am getting a check each month for referral fees. It’s actually more than I am paying them to use their software!”
Rent One Online plans to roll out additional travel services on a monthly basis including rental car, airfare, golf tee times, dinner reservations and local activities.
According to Bart Meltzer, founder of Rent One Online, “We are very excited to see our unique ‘everybody wins’ business model working. Our customers win with exceptional management software and better profit margins and the traveler wins because they have a one-stop shop for their vacation travel. Some companies talk about saving their customers money, we are actually making money for our customers.”
