For six decades, Monaker Group (OTCQB: MKGI) has catered to leisure travelers seeking to book “vacations of a lifetime” or find “travel made easy” options. Along the way, the company has gained the knowledge and experience to be considered an industry-leading, technology-driven travel company. Now, equipped with decades of experience and leveraging over 60 years of operation in leisure travel, Monaker is expanding its reach to business travel, using the full resources of its multiple brands and divisions to offer novel travel products to executives and professionals traveling for work.
Over the years, management has combined vital partnerships and established travel brands to form foundation stones that support Monaker’s corporate goal: to expand its offerings until it becomes the “one stop” vacation center.
NextTrip.com, an online marketplace for the alternative lodging rental (ALR) industry, is one of those key travel brands that Monaker has developed for the leisure traveler. With this flagship product, Monaker introduced to the ALR industry the first booking engine to feature alternative and specialty lodging (e.g. vacation home rentals, resort residences and unused timeshares) side by side with a wide selection of airlines, hotels, cruises, rental cars, destination tours/activities and concierge services. What’s more, all of NextTrip.com’s services are offered under a single platform that gives travel customers the power to choose exactly when they want to book their vacations.
Monaker is now extending that power to corporate travelers, starting with the development of a custom travel club offering for the members of Recruiter.com – an online global recruiting and career service with its own industry-leading technology platform. One of the most influential career sites around, Recruiter.com boasts of a highly engaged membership base and manages a social media following of more than 2.8 million people while matching top talent to top jobs. In April 2016, Monaker signed on to help it create the Recruiter.com Travel Club, a powerful new incentive to be added to the Recruiter.com Rewards Program and offered to the site’s current members and followers.
With this partnership, Recruiter.com is counting on Monaker offering its Travel Club members personalized travel and lifestyle offerings, including highly-discounted travel and vacation packages as well as special benefits such as concierge support, exclusive experiences and premium upgrades. Monaker, on the other hand, is counting on the partnership to open up another distribution line for its ALR inventory and other business and vacation travel products within its portfolio.
It has been seven months since Monaker and Recruiter formed their partnership and it is going well. In August, the companies expanded the terms of their initial agreement and Monaker became the exclusive provider of travel services to Recruiter.com. With this new title, Monaker gained a means to communicate directly with Recruiter’s broad list of customers, largely comprised of senior corporate executives. Now, on a weekly basis, a choice selection of Monaker’s travel products and services will be marketed to a list of approved members and their respective companies as well as other Recruiter.com followers, a development that gives Monaker and its platforms, inventory and travel products significant exposure to decision makers at over a million global companies.
