The summer has arrived, and you may be planning your vacation. Discover the best accommodation options and places to stay for every destination by TatildeKirala.com!
TatildeKirala.com is an online marketplace and hospitality service, enabling people to lease or rent short-term lodging including luxurious villas, exquisitely furnished apartments, homes with pools, boats, and motor yachts. The platform adopted the same business model with its global competitors such as Airbnb and HomeAway, and it has some significant domestic competitors such as HemenKiralık and Sahibinden.com.
The hosts may rent their homes or boats just in a few minutes on TatildeKirala.com free of charge. Once you create an account, you can add your home or boat on the site. The guests may choose and make reservation for the home or boat, depending on their needs and tastes.
TatildeKirala.com also provides airport transfer service to and from Antalya, Bodrum and İzmir airports. The aim of the website is to offer better and cheaper alternatives to hotels. The company has a safe and secure payment platform, and provides its guests the option of pay in installments.
The rental homes that are currently available on TatildeKirala.com have been used to accommodate hundreds of guests from different platforms. However, as it is a new company, there is not adequate number of rental boats or homes, which leads to slightly increased prices.
Another disadvantage is that rates fluctuate depending on the destination’s high and low season. It would be better if the platform had a feature to view “prices starting at X TL per night”. By this way, the guests would not be surprised to get increased quotation for the same house upon selecting a date in high season.
TatildeKirala.com is founded in the beginning of 2018 by Ruşen Mat, who has been working in the e-commerce industry for over 10 years. Activated in June 2018, the startup is headquartered in Ankara and has 15 employees. The vacation rental site received an investment with a valuation of 800k dollars (4 million Turkish Liras) from Onur Atakay, CEO of Sintek Madencilik.
TatildeKirala.com charges hosts a 3 percent that covers the cost of processing payments. They charge the guest an additional 15 percent.
The company’s short-term goal is to leave its competitors in the dust and expand vacation rental business globally to become the best vacation rental website. Its mid-term goal is to become one of the top 3 best vacation rental businesses in Europe and Middle East. The company, which launched a new company in Latvia to manage its operations in Europe, plans to make a big push into the European market in September. In 2019, TatildeKirala.com will enter into English, German and Russian speaking markets.
