Below is our recent interview with Emre Kamil Kaya, from Holiday Swap:
Q: What is Holiday Swap?
A: Holiday Swap is the world’s largest home sharing platform. The user base is spread over 184 countries and is made up of over 1 million users. Our goal at Holiday Swap is to make travel accommodations affordable to all. Everybody has an asset, the place they live. We saw an opportunity for people to take the place they live, and share it with other people when they travel simultaneously. This eliminates the soaring prices of hotels. In the past 12 months, hotel prices have risen an average of 184% globally. Now with Holiday Swap, anybody can travel and use their trip budget to do and see the things they really want.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Holiday Swap has successfully leveraged technology providing travel accommodations, to people all around the world, at a fraction of the price of hotels. Hotel prices are expected to continue to increase over the next 12 months. Holiday Swap is committed to maintaining low costs for users regardless of inflation nor the world economy.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Holiday Swap offers memberships for $10 per month, that include unlimited swap stays, with users around the world. A token purchase product has also been launched for those that do not want to swap and simply wish to pay per stay. Tokens are a cash equivalent similar to points/loyalty systems. New users earn free tokens for registering their account, listing homes and completing their profile. Between earning free tokens and purchasing tokens in app, accommodations are on average, 92% less than hotel stays.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: Over the next 6 months, Holiday Swap is projected to triple its current user base and add diverse property accommodation options for users. The properties include mountain cabins, tropical islands, and desert villas. Holiday Swap has been the number one, most downloaded app, in the Apple App store in 6 counties over the last 60 days. These trends will continue all over the world. Within 12 months, we are projected to exceed 10 million users. In August, Holiday Swap will be announcing a “Accommodations For Life” giveaway. One lucky winner will literally win free travel stay accommodations for life. Stay tuned for the contest announcement soon on our social media platforms!
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Holiday swap is operated by a diverse group of employees spread around the globe remotely. The team all have a passion for travel and see the world by using the Holiday Swap platform. With employees in 9 different countries, the team works relentlessly around the clock. Everybody has a passion for the product and being a part of truly innovating the travel industry.Activate Social Media:
