Swiss-based weholi empowers timeshare owners of all types to rent or sell their inventory in a professionally merchandised and marketed manner directly to a receptive worldwide vacationing community that is looking for more than just another hotel vacation.
weholi is a global online marketplace where vacation owners, HOA’s, management companies and vacationers come together to buy and rent vacation stays from each other. It’s a self-service, peer-to-peer transaction platform that offers vacation owners a safe, transparent and simple way to share vacation product and experiences with consumers looking for information, competitive pricing and just the type of vacations owners have known and loved for years. The company is strategically positioned to engage the next generation of vacation owners, offering a low-cost marketing channel that delivers new prospects to vacation properties at a fraction of the cost of traditional rental channels.
In the weholi marketplace, vacation owners are given a simple and intuitive interface to post their weeks for rent or for sale and they can engage in a dialogue with prospective renters and buyers in a secure environment, empowering them to monetize their own weeks and choose from other rental opportunities in destinations worldwide. Vacation owners will be a critical part of the marketplace, but weholi also employs an aggressive marketing and merchandising engine to ensure that offers get out to perspective renters and buyers via emails, social media postings, cross marketing on other sites and more. Owners can control pricing, track inquiries and conduct bookings and confirmations all online. All listings are also linked to TripAdvisor so that all buyers can access and write reviews at any time to help renters and buyers make an informed decision when shopping and booking.
weholi also recognizes that existing timeshare owners want more out of their ownership than what they are getting today – so weholi offers all of our members a set of robust travel benefits through the weTravel Center that perfectly compliment the timeshare ownership lifestyle; member exclusive nightly stay discounts, cruises, car rentals, air (not discounted) and local activity discounts. And while all of these benefits are accessible online 24/7, weholi staffs a team of telephone concierge agents to handle calls from members and guests alike, to facilitate, educate and guide members of the online community in any way necessary.
Guests can shop in the weholi marketplace free of charge. Timeshare owners posting rentals and for sales listings pay a membership fee based on the number of listings they will post and receive their travel benefits for a full year or more. There are no commissions to pay, no pricing parity rules and the site is simple to use.
Vacation buyers today value opinions from their peers as much if not more than from brands. weholi was founded on the principles of “Consumer Empowerment” and the “Sharing Economy” where peer-to-peer transactions can be facilitated online between private parties.
weholi is poised to reintroduce the timeshare resort product to a whole new generation of prospective owners, leveraging the power of a timeshare owner base that has enjoyed the resort product since its beginnings!
