Paul Stevens with Short Term Rentalz covers recent crowdfunding efforts by Whimstay, a short term rental platform offering deals on last minute bookings!

Stevens writes, “Last-minute reservations platform Whimstay has raised over $1 million in crowdfunding through StartEngine to power its growth in the United States.”

Stevens interviewed Bill Kushuba, VP of sales at Inntopia. They discuss how todays traveler looks different from a decade ago. He emphasizes how the Next Gen traveler demands last-minute short term rental bookings and spontaneous getaways. Kushuba states, “By combining our incredible network of suppliers with Whimstay’s ability to fill gaps in last-minute inventory, this integration is a great match.”

“Claiming to be the first-to-market aggregator of unsold vacation rental properties, Whimstay provides last-minute deals in the vacation rental market. The company charges service fees to travellers and properties. These fees range from five to ten percent of the booking for travelers. Fees for hosts range between three and five percent.”

Whimstay is the leading last-minute vacation rental marketplace, offering travelers exceptional deals on professionally managed properties.  Every night, nearly 52% of all vacation rentals worldwide sit vacant creating a multibillion-dollar opportunity. Whimstay secures an exclusive discount on unsold inventory in partnership with property managers, providing the best value to last-minute travelers while driving additional revenue for property owners.
