Booking.com partners with Futurestay for online check-ins
Booking.com has partnered with cloud-based vacation rental management solution Futurestay to provide online check-in options for the latter's partner properties booked through the platform, as a way of allaying customer concerns in the wake of Covid-19.
Speaking to Phocuswire, he said: "With this technology, it's not that it is new, it's more along the lines of it's now necessary. It's almost table stakes at this point in time.
"I believe Booking and Futurestay are really pioneering on this in the short-term rental side. And I think we will see this accelerating through most of the alternative accommodations sector, just because this is the perfect time for travellers to stay in alternative accommodations, and they want socially distanced stays," he added.
