Vacation rental sector keeps busy as Demeure buys IAVRA
Demeure, the Canadian platform-as-a-service provider, has bought UK-based B2B vacation rental platform IAVRA and will add it to its newly branded Metamarketplace network of buyers and sellers.
No terms of the deal were disclosed.
IAVRA (TLabs here) is a database of more than 8,000 vacation rental properties which are made available to more than 2,000 travel agents and concierge services.
It will be connected with the Metamarketplace's network of 5,000+ other properties to create "travel marketplaces that connect certified accommodation to previously unreachable channels of demand," according to IAVRA founding partner JC Moquette.
