Homestay.com, the global travel website for booking homestay accommodation online, today announced that they are to extend their partnership with major UK accommodation agency Britannia Student Services.
Britannia, one of the world’s leading accommodation and student services agency, will invite 1,000 of its London-based hosts to immediately go live on the Homestay.com e-commerce platform.
The move will increase Britannia’s online presence and give its network of hosts access to an e-commerce marketplace, in partnership with Homestay.com, adding to their exposure worldwide.
It is another example of how Homestay.com is partnering with homestay agencies worldwide to connect global homestay networks. These partnerships allow homestay accommodation agencies, such as Britannia, to better promote their homestay portfolios online to an international audience seeking a new type of accommodation.
Alan Clarke, CEO of Homestay.com, said, “We are delighted to extend our relationship with Britannia Student Services, a partner with more than 16 years of experience servicing homestay guests and hosts.”
For organisations like Britannia, the digital technology developed by Homestay.com facilitates a smooth transition into the world of e-commerce, making the booking process for both hosts and guests transparent and hassle-free.
Homestays are a type of accommodation in which a guest rents a room in a local person’s home and is ‘hosted’ by them during their stay.
The homestay accommodation sector has grown in popularity in recent years as it moves into mainstream travel and is now a recognised accommodation alternative for tourists seeking a more authentic local travel experience.
