Which is the best international cultural exchange service in the US?
Holiday rental company Backhouse is taking advantage of the fact that there are no shortage of hotels and motels in the United States and is looking to add to its international offerings.
The startup, which operates a network of “holiday apartments” across the country, has signed deals with a number of different holiday-rental providers.
But they’re all located in the Midwest and the Northeast.
“We’re looking for hotels in areas that have a lot of holiday events and events with a lot more people,” said Kevin Johnson, CEO of Backhouse.
Johnson is also the co-founder of a new startup called Holiday Rentals, which is looking for more holiday rental properties to serve its clients.
Holiday Renters currently operates in several states, including Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and Washington.
Johnson has seen some success with Holiday Rentees since it launched in October 2016.
He says it has been a successful program, with customers staying for three months and signing up for a monthly payment of $1,000.
But he says that it can be challenging for a new business to make the transition from a single-room occupancy hotel to a multi-room rental.
“It’s very expensive,” he said.
Holiday rentals also have a high risk factor for guests, with no guarantee of security, as well as a low likelihood of staying for more than a few days, which can lead to potential illness or a breakdown of the rental agreements.
The company’s goal, Johnson said, is to help Holiday Rentee’s clients stay at hotels longer.
“The risk of not staying is really a small number,” he explained.
Holiday Resorts is also looking to expand its international network.
In the coming months, the company is also planning to expand into Germany, which it first started offering holiday rentals to in 2015.
“Our plan is to go from Germany to a more extensive global program and expand to more countries in the next six to 12 months,” Johnson said.
“Hopefully, that will include other countries that don’t have a Holiday Resort.”
Holiday Renting has a long history of service.
In 2015, Holiday Resours was acquired by the same company that operates Holiday Rentes.
Johnson said the company had been operating out of its home in Los Angeles for about five years, but had been expanding internationally.
“After all, we are the first company to ever be the first one to offer holiday rentals in the UK and Germany,” he added.
