Now that remote work has become mainstream, more and more knowledge workers want to travel the world. To spend several months living and working in a location before they move on to the next.
Unfortunately for this new crop of digital nomads, booking mid-term stays through Airbnb is terribly expensive. But there is a platform that caters specifically to guests and hosts looking to book one-, two- or three-month leases.
Omer Kucukdere is the Founder and CEO of Nestpick and Sublet.com, the largest global platform for on-demand housing. Omer’s team targets mid-term stays of more than 30 nights but less than a year, serving expats, corporate travelers, international students and the growing population of digital nomads.
On this episode of Get Paid for Your Pad, Omer joins me to discuss the benefits of using Nestpick over other OTAs or local market platforms and share the supply available on the platform.
We describe the opportunity for hosts in monthly stays, and Omer makes the business case for offering mid-term leases in a post-COVID world.
