Homestay grabs $3 million funding, buys rival HomestayBooking
Homestay, a self-styled “Airbnb competitor” for hosted stays around the world, has landed $3 million from Delta Partners.
The capital raise for the Dublin-based startup was supported by the country’s entrepreneur fund, Enterprise Ireland.
To coincide with the funding announcement, Homestay says it has bought Berlin-based HomestayBooking for an undisclosed fee.
Homestay claims the acquisition will give it some 25,000 registered properties around the world where travellers can “guests and hosts looking to share experiences can find each other”.
