One of the World’s largest travel website has launched its holiday rentals on TripAdvisor Holiday Rentals India, allowing the travellers to search, compare and choose from 5.5 lakh properties around the world. The properties range from small tree houses to large villas.
“An average Indian family of two adults and two children can save up to 57% in a destination like Venice by opting for holiday rental versus a regular hotel stay. We are confident that this new offering from TripAdvisor will see a tremendous uptake among the avid travellers in the country” said Mr Nikhil Ganju, Country Manager, TripAdvisor India.
Travellers can book holiday rentals easily on the TripAdvisor website. Travellers can find the pictures and extensive details of the properties through the ‘Holiday Rental’ tab on the website. The properties can be filtered by destination, stay date of accommodation and other options like ‘private pool’ or ‘pet friendly’. After choosing the right property, travellers can either arrange the payment or contact the property owner for any queries.
The property owners can list their free space for rent through the TripAdvisor and its branded websites which will shoe them on both the TripAdvisor as well as on its branded website.
The travel giant had acquired Oyster.com, a hotel review website featuring expert reviews and photos last year for an undisclosed amount.
Operating in 38 countries worldwide, TripAdvisor website got over 260 million unique visitors in 2013 with more than 150 million reviews for more than 3.7 million accommodation properties.
