Thanks to Katanox’s streaming distribution capabilities, YAYS Group are able to offer its accommodation to a host of travel management companies.
Amsterdam, October 11, 2023 - Katanox, the travel accommodation distribution and fintech platform, announced today its deal with leading serviced-apartments provider YAYS Group.
YAYS Group will leverage Katanox’s streaming distribution capabilities to connect travel management companies with its growing range of serviced apartments. As a mid-size accommodation provider, they will be able to easily tap into a new source of high value demand.
YAYS Group manages 16 properties in Amsterdam, The Hague, Paris, and Antwerp and is set to expand to the likes of Madrid and Berlin. The Group’s award-winning, lifestyle brand platform includes YAYS (fully serviced aparthotels) and by YAYS (self-serviced apartments).
“This partnership allows us to have complete control and transparency in offering our inventory to Travel Agents and TMCs,” said Lisanne Doensen, Head of Commerce, YAYS Group.
“In the distribution landscape characterised by traditional and complex connections, often with numerous commissions and fees for each booking, Katanox is a real game changer. Onboarding our properties to Katanox was very easy and quickly done.”
This comes as Katanox grows its supply of short and long-term apartments and private places, an increasingly demanded type of accommodation among business travellers.
“This deal with YAYS Group is the latest in our efforts to bring both short and long stay apartment accommodation to travel management companies, which is quickly becoming a preferred way of travelling for business travellers,” said Mendel Senf, co-founder, Katanox.
“YAYS Group is a great addition because of the exceptional serviced apartments the company provides its guests. We’re excited to grow this partnership as YAYS Groups quickly expands its range of properties.”

Katanox facilitates distribution of travel accommodation inventory and payments. The platform is unlocking the programmatic era for B2B distribution in hospitality.
