Interhome is casting a wide net, as the HomeAway deal is the latest in a series of Interhome distribution partnerships. In late 2011, Interhome partnered with TripAdvisor, and in January 2013, formed a partnership with Priceline’s Booking.com which marked Booking.com’s debut in the vacation rental space.
Interhome also works with Pathway GDS to distribute their properties to online travel agencies and tour operators.
According to the Interhome website, over 99% of Interhome’s inventory is located in Europe with 15 regional subsidiaries. In 2012 Interhome hosted 535,000 rental guests and recorded a net yield of CHF 181 million ($2oo million USD), implying an average annual net yield per property of just under $7,000.
“Working with HomeAway is a great fit because both companies passionately believe that vacations are not just about where you go, but where you stay,” says Interhome CEO Simon Lehman. “We look forward to helping even more families and groups create lasting memories with a level of service and comfort they’ll never forget.”
