HomeAway Expands Asia Pacific Presence With Acquisition Of Asian Vacation Rental Start-up, Travelmob

“We are excited to join HomeAway as the vacation rental industry develops in Asia. We see an increasing trend of Asian travelers expressing a preference for authentic experiences and the quality and value afforded by our range of properties,” says Fuad. “Our focus at travelmob is to enable travelers to experience Asia like a local, staying at the cool places throughout this vast region. In our first year alone, our inventory has grown to more than 14,000 properties to support this growing demand.”

Since April 2011, HomeAway has steadily invested in its Asia Pacific presence beginning with the purchase of the holiday rental business from REA Group Limited and the subsequent launch of HomeAway.com.au. Last year, HomeAway made a minority investment in China-based vacation rental company, Tujia.com, in partnership with Ctrip.com International (NASDAQ: CTRP), the leading online travel service provider in China. The company also has distribution partnerships with Wego.com and Tripvillas.com. Most recently, HomeAway opened a sales office in Bangkok, Thailand in April of this year to serve the growing inventory of private villas offered to the public as vacation rentals.
