RedAwning Reports Record Booking Volumes with Travelers Seeking to Get Out of Town and Stay Safe

Bookings Up 42% YoY in drive-to destinations at beach, mountain and lake properties

Emeryville, CA, June 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

RedAwning, the leading hospitality platform for short-term rentals, today announced a surge in vacation rental booking volumes for all of its open destinations. With over 35,000 North American properties represented across every major travel booking website, RedAwning recently saw the same travel-restriction challenges as other hospitality industry players, with significant guest cancellations and a huge drop in bookings from mid-March through April. But now, guests are returning in a dramatic fashion, especially for drive-type destinations.


RedAwning’s year-over-year booking volumes are up 42% in the most recent week, even without key destinations like Hawaii open yet. The pent-up demand for travel is being felt across the country, and the desire for the safety of a vacation home is benefitting strongly from this demand, particularly for drivable destinations.


“We regret the pain that all of our industry and guests have felt over the past couple of months, including thousands of RedAwning guests, but we are so delighted to see this return to vacation rental travel,” said Tim Choate, Founder & CEO of “There is no safer way to travel in these Covid-19 times than to get in your car and drive with your family to a private vacation home, and it’s clear travelers are anxious and ready to do just that. We encourage any Property owners and managers not yet working with RedAwning’s full-service platform and network to join us and take advantage of the incredible short term growth opportunities. ”


RedAwning has seen particular strength in beach destinations, mountain destinations and lake locations. Guests are booking longer stays with a shorter, nearer check-in window than usual, reflecting the excitement to get out and travel right away.
