Online travellers now have thousands of new worldwide accommodations and resorts to choose from as part of a strategic alliance between ResortQuest International and Interval Travel, two of the world`s leading providers of vacation accommodations.
ResortQuest International is marketing Interval Travel`s resort properties on the ResortQuest Web site,www.resortquest.com . The marketing alliance brings together ResortQuest International, the world`s largest manager of vacation rental properties and Interval, the world`s leading timeshare exchange company.
For travellers, the combination greatly expands the lodging inventory on the ResortQuest site to nearly 150,000 vacation rental accommodations in over 400 resort destinations around the world. Vacationers can rent the Interval properties in a fashion similar to renting a ResortQuest managed condominium, home or villa via the Web site. Reservations can be made, and confirmed, entirely online.
“Whether one wants to relax on North Carolina`s Outer Banks or experience the joie v`ivre of Paris, we now offer an enormous variety of attractive new places to see and stay on the ResortQuest Web site,” said David L. Levine, ResortQuest chairman, president and CEO. “The biggest beneficiary of this alliance is the leisure traveler, whose universe of vacation choices has now been greatly expanded.”
“Our homeowner network also benefits,” Levine added. “Our relationship with Interval Travel greatly expands the number of people who potentially can rent ResortQuest vacation accommodations.” He added
Great values abound on the ResortQuest Web site. A one-bedroom condominium in Hawaii, for example, now starts at $85 per night, while a ski condo in Telluride, Colorado starts at $89 per night.
“During a time when people want to renew and reinforce their bonds with family and friends, we now offer more choices for vacation rentals than ever before to facilitate that reconnecting process,” said Levine. “Our location options span the globe and include many of the most popular resort destinations in the United States and abroad.”
ResortQuest International will manage their properties separately from Interval Travel`s. ResortQuest properties are clearly marked on the Web site and continue to use their exclusive rating system, so customers know what to expect of their vacation rentals.
