Otta's take on AvantStay

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

AvantStay provides short term property rentals specifically tailored for group travel. Unlike online travel agencies who act as middlemen between property managers and travellers, AvantStay owns and operates all of the properties it rents out. This means they can maintain consistency and quality of service across the entire business – crucial for developing strong brand loyalty.

Award-winning interior designers have worked on all the properties, specifically designing all spaces with groups in mind, and guests have access to an app where they can easily choose add-on services such as spa treatments, grocery delivery or a private chef.

AvantStay now has over 600 properties in 60 cities and has plans for further expansion outside of the US. The business is investing in growing its portfolio, as well as further evolving its operational technology infrastructure, improving services by, for example, a partnership with Allianz Partners to offer customers trip cancellation and trip interruption coverage.
