Most people will agree with my statement that the way we book holidays is changing, remember the days when our parents scrolled through Teletext to book our all-inclusive to Mallorca? Well, things have changed, we enjoy the freedom of trolling the web reading countless reviews and booking our packages at our leisure. Now imagine a time when we can set a genuine price for our holiday, welcome to the world of Tansler.
Tansler.com offers holiday homes and rentals as an auction format. You’re required to enter the standard details (Location, Dates) but with one mighty catch, you the consumer sets the price! As the consumer you are required to choose 2 or more properties that you are interested in, set your price for the stay and hit submit. The chosen holiday homes then bid for your custom, the first to accept your offer is the winner! If nobody accepts your offer after 24 hours the auction is simply cancelled and you revise your price.
An excellent concept in my humble opinion, I mean, take a quiet week where you’ve decided on a break and found your desired locations, say the rental property doesn’t have any custom but doesn’t want the week to pass unoccupied, the potential for you to get a great bargain and for the rental property to acquire a reasonable income is fantastic!
Tansler operates predominantly in Europe and the USA (Orlando to be specific) with plans to go global this coming year. Their inventory of properties comes mainly from Property Management Companies which represent anywhere between 20 – 200 properties.
With both sides benefiting from the honesty and competition surrounding consumer prices Tansler is set to be a hit in 2015. Don’t just take my word for it, try it out yourself. In the upcoming months I will surely be using Tansler for my holiday rentals. May the best property win.
