Barcelona, Spain (PRWEB) August 21, 2014
After successfully launching in the U.S., Lodgify, a travel technology startup based in Barcelona, is now offering its Website Builder to European holiday rental owners. Lodgify enables holiday rental owners to easily create a website with a “Book now” button and manage their reservations. Lodgify’s vision is to increase bookings generated directly via the owner’s website, and help owners to become less dependent on commission-based listing sites and online travel agencies.
"Many European holiday rental businesses do not have their own functional website yet, even though we have learned from comparable sectors, such as the hotel industry, that this channel can account for 10-20% of bookings. That is a missed opportunity and we’d like to change that,” says Marco De Gregorio, Co-founder of Lodgify.”
Earlier in 2014, Lodgify was selected as one of the winners of Seedcamp London, Europe’s leading accelerator and mentoring program. Since then, Lodgify has been regularly adding features and is now offering their software and customer support in three additional languages i.e. Spanish, Italian and German.
“The European holiday rental market has evolved into a $42 billion industry. However, it still underserved in terms of innovative and affordable technology for accommodation owners,” says De Gregorio. "Being a European team based in Barcelona, we would like to offer our technology to European holiday rental businesses in their own language."
Lodgify offers scalable subscription plans based on a monthly fee for both holiday rental owners and managers with 1 to 500+ properties. The software-as-a-service includes mobile-friendly website templates, an online booking engine, reservation system and channel manager. Lodgify’s booking engine integrates with both Stripe and Paypal.
