Dtravel Partners with Rent Responsibly
Dtravel partners with Rent Responsibly, a community-building and education platform for local short-term rental (STR) alliances.
This week, Rent Responsibly announced its newest 2022 partners, with Dtravel proudly named alongside nine other partners, including Expedia Group, NoiseAware and Breezeway.
Rent Responsibly is a community-building and education platform for local short-term rental (STR) alliances. By providing tools and alliance management services, Rent Responsibly equips local leaders to build successful, self-sustaining organizations of short-term rental operators, managers and all other stakeholders in their communities.
In this article, we’ll cover why we partnered with Rent Responsibly, how the partnership benefits the Dtravel ecosystem and how you can get involved.
Aligned Principles Key to Partnership
Rent Responsibly’s mission of bringing STR stakeholders together to empower them through knowledge sharing and the formation of local alliances is particularly aligned with our own principles.
At Dtravel, one of our primary goals is to fundamentally change what it means to be part of an STR community. We’re doing this by increasing ownership and encouraging greater direct involvement in the ecosystem through unrivaled decision-making power and influence for community members.
There are many aspects of STR hosting, and Dtravel is just one piece of the puzzle. Other considerations such as tax, insurance and property care are something that all short-term rental operators must inevitably deal with, and with a variety of conflicting advice strewn throughout the internet, joining STR alliances through Rent Responsibly is an inclusive way for short-term rental operators to connect with each other, regardless of whether they’re just getting started or looking to improve their established offering.
It’s important to recognize that the business of STR hosting is complex and can be daunting due to factors such as various STR regulations and tax legislation. Through partners like Dtravel, Rent Responsibly makes it easy for members to collaborate, solve common challenges, advocate and steward their communities.
Since Dtravel utilizes web3 technologies that will be relatively new to many short-term rental operators, it’s especially important that we continue to educate operators on how to use our product and the benefits that come with it — and what better way to do it than in the company of other incredible STR businesses working to enhance the hosting experience.
Benefits of the Partnership
As part of a select 2022 cohort comprising ten partners, the partnership puts a spotlight on Dtravel, highlighting our unique ecosystem to STR alliances across the U.S. and the rest of the world.
This opportunity will help generate interest from short-term rental operators who are passionate about a sustainable future for the STR industry, with the potential to increase the supply of Dtravel listings as a result.
The partnership will enable us to leverage the incredible work that Rent Responsibly has done to date by tapping into their rapidly growing database of tens of thousands of owners, short-term rental operators and property managers to share educational videos, advertisements and newsletter content with an engaged, high-quality audience.
Alongside the brand and marketing potential associated with the partnership, we’ll also be able to expand our communication channels through speaking spots at quarterly virtual events, participation in biannual demo days and introductions to industry connections.
There are also a number of upcoming initiatives by the team to further drive traffic to Dtravel by assisting short-term rental operators and property managers to conveniently discover helpful STR products and service providers.

Earlier this week, Rent Responsibly also unveiled their inaugural RR Summit, a two-day virtual conference taking place 12–13 July 2022, free to all STR owners across the globe.
The summit will feature 16 educational sessions with 2022 partners, Rent Responsibly staff and expert guest speakers. Topics will range from implementing smart practices to leveling up operations, navigating local laws, scaling sustainably, beating burnout and more.
Keynote sessions will include a fireside chat with HomeAway co-founder Carl Shepherd and a Founders of the Future panel discussion.
