The Other Home is a non-hotel properties aggregator, comprising Holiday Homes, Homestays, Heritage, Eco-resorts and Outdoor Adventure with over 500 properties in 24 states. The company enables travelers to explore local food, culture, heritage and lifestyle, creating a marketplace for people to have vacations in alternate accommodations and also enrich their vacations with various experiential dimensions. The Other Home connects travelers with the best suited accommodation option and other support services.
The bulk of tourism services around the world are fragmented on both supply and demand side. Already a large number of vacation rentals and homestays properties are available in India and the availability is expected to increase. The issue in the current scenario is that there is a micro offer in terms of small properties and there is a micro demand from travelers. Thus, properties owners need marketing muscle to reach the travelers, whereas, travelers look for third-party accreditation and support. This leaves critical supply chain gap. The Other Home will bridge these gaps by connecting travelers with the best suited accommodation option and other support services. The Other Home model will ensure that technology enables fragmented buyers (demand) to reach supply and credibility / aggregation enables fragmented supply to reach demand.
