The easiest way of describing us is as the professional Airbnb. We have professional managers on the ground in every location where we have properties, so if anything happens, there's somebody there to fix it...

Talking Business: Nico Nicholas, RentalsCombined

I've always been happiest when I'm my own boss, which is why my career path to date has been strongly entrepreneurial. I've launched and grown a number of B2C ventures, the first of which I founded when I was just 22. Although the companies I started were in a variety of sectors, the experience gleaned was invaluable ahead of creating RentalsCombined in 2012 with my wife and co-founder Elkie...

Industry trends 2017

I believe there will be two key trends for the travel industry next year.

SABRE APPY AWARD WINNERS NAMED DURING THIRD ANNUAL DEVELOPERS COMPETITION

Winner in the Online B2B category, RentalsCombined.net allows travel agents to shop business and leisure vacation rentals from around the world. They offer two ways to access their inventory – through an API that companies can integrate into their solutions or by using their Sabre Red App. The Red App operates in the background of the Sabre Red Workspace, searching for available rentals within the location, dates and number of people entered by the agent. Properties that meet the search criteria are displayed in a pop-up panel within the Red Workspace. The agent can access detailed information and book the property from the Red Workspace. In addition, the app allows agents to share a virtual walkthrough with the traveller so that they can see the property's features before booking.

THREE APPYS CROWNED AT THE SABRE APPYS

RentalsCombined.net won best app in the online B2B category for their app.RentalsCombined.net brings short-term business and leisure vacation rentals around the world to travel agents. They presented an app that listens to the agent's console and searches availability for the location, dates and number of people currently being entered in the background. If it finds a suitable property, it will open a panel on the right of the console showing the results. The agent will be able to expand on this information, but will also be able to engage in a "show-me" session with the customer so they can walk them through a selection of properties, either face to face, during a chat session or by phone so the customer actually sees the content. There will also be the option for manual searches. The booking and payment process will be directly linked to the console, allowing for one-click booking.
