The marketplace platform we have launched enables vacation rental hosts to easily complement their income by monetising guest recommendations. As hosts have various arrangements to deal with in order to accommodate each guest they lack the time and opportunities to upsell local products, services and experiences that the guests are looking for and this is where GLL proves to be a great tool for them.

Travellers discover amazing & sustainable local products, services & experiences trusting the best ambassador: the person they trust enough to stay in their home or villa and ask for local suggestions. Hosts switch to a more sustainable business model by choosing the right suppliers & products to run their day to day business, having control and data for their guests' purchases in a review based platform.

Hosts switch to a more sustainable business model by choosing the right suppliers & products to run their day to day business, having control and data for their guests' purchases in a review based platform.

For guests, finding the best local products, services & experiences is key to having a memorable experience at their destination. They rely on their hosts' recommendations to explore a destination and its culture and want to live-like-local during their stay.

Sustainability is a key tourism trend that will become a mandatory guest requirement in the near future. By promoting resource conservation and local producers, carbon footprint lowers. In addition to providing tools for hosts to become more profitable, Guest Like Local aims to educate on issues such as water conservation, recycling, power consumption and other key sustainability areas which can also reduce their costs.

Successful hosts have the knowledge but lack the tools to upsell to their guests as they have to deal with various issues (arrange cleaning, arrival time, manage payments, etc.) and the local "product" becomes better with the feedback they receive through the platform and creates a better "environment" for next generation local producers!

- Hosts know what products/services/activities are favoured by their guests.
- Through Guest Like Local they can provide more suggestions and increase their profit.
- Guest Like Local charges a flat commission on all transactions.
- There is an $8 billion market to address.

The founding team has 5 years of experience hosting more than 5,000 guests per year. Following the launch of our MVP platform and the initial traction we got, we know this is a great opportunity in the Travel & Tourism sector.
