Travel meta-search Momondo, a travel site with a collection of free services which helps users plan their travels, has partnered with SunnyRentals.com, one of the leading global web portals for holiday rentals, to offer a one-stop-shop for holiday rentals, plus flights and car hire – for those who prefer a private apartment, house or villa stay.
Travellers who would rather book a private holiday home over a hotel will be able to search over 100,000 properties in 62 countries on Momondo.co.uk, ranging from one to ten bedrooms in size. The site also showcases a number of featured properties, special for their unique architecture or exceptional value.
Kim Constantine Sølbeck, Vice President of SunnyRentals.com comments: “At SunnyRentals.com we have been looking for a global travel search engine that is able to find cheap flights, to support all of our 109,000 vacation rentals around the world. Momondo has one of the best search engines on the market – so we are excited to work with a portal that is active in 15 countries and also has a strong brand.”
Being able to search in one place, for flights and accommodation, for a holiday or weekend stay, makes life a lot easier. From a recent survey, SunnyRentals.com found that trips abroad will almost always be cheaper if travelling in groups. For example, on average, SunnyRentals.com found that parties of four or more can save up to 60% on accommodation costs, by renting a holiday home, rather than hotels.
Martin Lumbye, Partner at Momondo states: “We are constantly working to develop and create a user-friendly site that offers price transparency in everything for the journey. Cooperation with SunnyRentals.com allows users to plan their travel themselves and search for cheap apartments in more than 60 countries around the world. “
SunnyRentals.com is split between four countries – the parent company is based in Nicosia, Cyprus, its European commercial headquarters are in Copenhagen, Denmark, and product development split between Malmo, Sweden and Kiev, Ukraine. The company is privately owned.
Momondo is a Danish initiative founded by experienced people from the travel industry and skilled programmers with a passion for new technology, travelling the world and meeting new people. The site was launched in September 2006 as a flight search engine only. Today the site has introduced city guides, become multilingual and added hotel and car rental search as well.
