Detailed Description

Update

Localo is a social marketplace that allows you to travel like a local, by booking rooms, homes, sofabeds, boats, private islands, whatever!... from locals willing to share them.

Travelers search for places to stay in their next travel destination using our platform and submit their requirements in an itinerary which is forwarded to hosts nearby the location searched. These hosts – the localos – compete to provide the adequate personalized offer for the traveler. If travelers find a place which they love at first sight, they can book immediately given the lodging is available in the desired dates. And, when the time to travel arrives, they are ready to have fun doing what locals do!

Localos can list their properties with sufficient detail for free, helping travelers make informed selections when searching for accommodations. They can even set their rates and manage their availability in our flexible system. Locals charge travelers directly and only pay commissions when travelers have booked and paid!
