Investors

Launched April 2017 Sydney, Australia.

Aabode.com founded by a passionate customer focused team of experts in travel, accommodation, IT services and marketing.

The founders realised the current services for distribution of accommodation are being dominated by large uncaring platforms which seek to gouge and maximise returns at the expense of both the accommodation provider and guests.

Online booking growth over the past 2 years for accommodation providers has be phenomenal, but distribution continues to be narrowed into just the few - Booking.com, Airbnb and Expedia (Stayz) - which is forcing the cost to distribute higher and higher.

There had to be a better way than being forced into paying higher and higher unfair commissions and costs to distribute their property.

The owner is forced to pass on these high costs by charging higher rates or suffering forever diminishing returns. Who benefits? Not the owner, not the guest.

The Problem

  • - Big commissions charged by current platforms are from 16% to 45%
  • - Poor display opportunities/stuck on page 10 without cost effective support
  • - Display algorithms work against the owner
  • - Poor accommodation brand care
  • - Poor analytics information /very opaque

The Solution
Aabode Platform as a Service - APaaS

The only accommodation platform creating a zero commission marketplace for accommodation distribution providing both the accommodation provider pre and post booking support.

Uber like service with concierge services for both the owner and guest supporting local businesses which add value to the travel experience.

The Opportunity

Aabode has launched (April 2017) in both Australia and NZ - our backyard - with listings going from zero to now well over 1400 properties in a very short time.

Listings are happening in Bali and throughout SE Asia by owners seeing the value and support provided by Aabode. We want more.
