TripAdvisor launches holiday rentals in India

Mumbai

TripAdvisor, an online travel review and recommendation site has launched holiday rentals on TripAdvisor Holiday Rentals India, allowing travellers to search and compare more than 5.5 lakh properties around the world.

“An average Indian family comprising 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 feel that this new offering will see a tremendous uptake among avid travellers in the country,” said Nikhil Ganju, country manager, TripAdvisor India.

Travellers can now find pictures, reviews, descriptions and booking information on properties, while homeowners can list their properties for free and benefit from the company’s audience of 260 million users per month (as claimed by TripAdvisor). Available properties are wide-ranging and can accommodate single travellers as well as large groups in villas, ski chalets, apartments, houseboats, castles, tree houses and more.

Through the ‘Holiday Rentals’ tab on TripAdvisor, travellers will find pictures and extensive detail on available properties. Users can filter properties by date of stay, destination, size, amenities/options such as ‘private pool’ or ‘pet-friendly’, etc. When a suitable property is found, travellers can arrange payment and/or contact the owner with more queries.

Home owners can list their property for free on TripAdvisor as well as TripAdvisor-branded websites- FlipKey and Holiday Lettings. When users in India click ‘set up your free listing’ on the Holiday Rentals homepage, they will be redirected to the TripAdvisor-branded website, Holiday Lettings to complete their listing. Properties listed on Holiday Lettings will appear on both Holiday Lettings and TripAdvisor.
