Xotelia, a Grenoble-based startup, raised €1.3 million from Newfund to ease the management of home rentals across a number of platforms. The current list of partners include peer-to-peer sites (Airbnb, Housetrip, & Wimdu), as well as booking platforms (Expedia, Booking.com and Tripadvisor). Xotelia, which was founded in 2012, synchronises booking schedules across a range of platforms. Besides automating updates from partner platforms, Xotelia also offer a booking function for your Facebook page.
Monthly fees start from 10,50€ for a booking engine and go up to 47€ for a booking engine and access to over 40 partner websites. By offering a range of room types and access to a higher number of partners customers can expect to pay 47€ per month.
To date Xotelia manage €3 million in reservations per month. The cash injection is expected to grow the current team to fifteen people.
