Dtravel’s Direct Bookings Revolutionised Through Know Your Guest Integration

Posted by Kiera Davidson on July 26, 2023 · News,Property Managers

Know Your Guest (KYG) is excited to announce that we are revolutionising safer stays with our latest integration with Dtravel, a blockchain-based direct booking infrastructure company.

Property managers are seeking greater control over their businesses by embracing the benefits direct booking solutions have to offer. However, their growing concern is that without an OTA, there is no security blanket when it comes to guest damage. 

That’s why, finding property managers the right solutions that will allow them to build independence, scale their businesses and accept direct bookings with the peace of mind that if something did happen, their bookings and properties will be protected from guest-related damages, has been of utmost importance to the Dtravel team. 

Dtravel has partnered with Know Your Guest, the industry-leading risk management platform by Superhog, to eliminate these concerns and install booking confidence and peace of mind to all Dtravel users. 

The new addition of Know Your Guest will revolutionise the Dtravel direct booking, blockchain platform with intelligent guest screening for all Dtravel property managers to mitigate the chance of hosting risky guests and fraudulent or party bookings.

KYG will also seamlessly provide their industry-unmatched $5,000,000 Damage Protection Plan for all Dtravel customers, should they choose to use it.

What are the benefits for Dtravel property managers?

In a rapidly evolving STR landscape, trust for both hosts and guests is paramount for guest satisfaction and property manager success.

With this connection, property managers will also be able to advertise themselves as a trusted industry professional.

Know who you’re letting into your home

An unknown guest can leave you susceptible to damage, loss of revenue and even leave a mark on your reputation. Dtravel and Know Your Guest’s partnership allows property managers to establish the true identity of their guests. 

Know that with Intelligent Guest Screening turned on, property managers can welcome guests into their homes and feel confident that they have undergone a thorough background screening process.

Any flagged issues will be raised ahead of check-in, so you remain one step ahead at all times.
