2. The top local category: hyper-local niche listing sites

4. The travel trend category: sites that target traveller segments by exploring the reasons why people travel, as well as the experience they are looking for.

The Squiggle Mag provides an in-depth overview of 50+ listing sites – including 30+ niche channels – working in partnership with Rentals United.
We hope you will try some of the niche sites alongside the larger OTAs and if you’re looking to automate that process, we’re the leading specialised channel manager and offer completely transparent pricing.
