RealTimeRental Announces First “Stay Protection” Transaction

OCEAN CITY, N.J. (STL.News) – RealTimeRental.com, a cloud based vacation rental software company, is pleased to announce that the first Stay Protection transaction in the country was completed on its platform. The transaction was made by Mary Allen Realty, Inc of Ship Bottom, NJ who specializes in Long Beach Island, NJ vacation rentals and real estate. Stay Protection allows RealTimeRental clients to offer full or partial refunds to their short-term rental guests in the event of rainy weather during their vacation week. Enabled by RealTimeRental, a property manager can seamlessly add Stay Protection when creating a vacation rental booking in the software.

The current Stay Protection software program enables RealTimeRental clients to refund renters either a portion of the rent or the entire week’s rental expense, if it rains more than a specified amount on 4 or more days of a weekly rental. Stay Protection is powered by AccuWeather and CX Markets, a U.S. regulated exchange and affiliate of Cantor Fitzgerald. Rainfall measurements are confirmed by AccuWeather and taken from weather stations located near the rental properties.

“We are always looking to create integrated partnerships that help RealTimeRental clients stand out from their competition and achieve greater levels of success. Stay Protection offers a unique way for vacation rental offices to keep their rental guests happy in the case of inclement weather. We see Stay Protection not only as valuable to travelers, but also as a way for property owners to set their rental apart from the competition. Property owners can offer Stay Protection as an amenity or incentive for tenants to choose to stay in their rental property. We are thrilled to give the real estate and property management companies that use RealTimeRental the ability to offer this innovative product to their rental guests” said Joseph Testa, Co-Founder RealTimeRental.

RealTimeRental’s software also enables its clients to hedge their refund obligation to their rental guests by linking its clients with CX Markets, a U.S. regulated exchange and affiliate of Cantor Fitzgerald. When a RealTimeRental client looks to bind a Stay Protection provision into a rental agreement, RealTimeRental automatically transmits that information to CX Markets, where the Stay Protection hedge can be entered and confirmed. Payments to RealTimeRental clients from CX Markets require no additional paperwork.
