Agency and real estate company JLL is going head-to-head with Airbnb after launching its own short term rentals platform.
The website, called JLL Short Stays, offers business and leisure travellers fully-serviced accommodation from just three nights through to more than 12 months.
Built with rental technology provider Lavanda, the platform already has 1,000 listings available in the UK and is planning to roll out internationally in 2022.
Sam Winnard, director at JLL, said: “JLL Short Stays offers guests a better value alternative to a hotel or serviced apartment, whilst at the same time providing exclusive access to premium urban accommodation professionally managed by the world’s most trusted blue chip operators including Greystar, Blackstone, and CA Ventures.
“This is all wrapped up in a best-in-class online booking experience to deliver a seamless digital guest experience end-to-end. We have big ambitions for our platform, and I’m hugely excited to develop it alongside our network of corporate travel bookers into a primary channel of corporate rental demand.”
