Intense activity in the Vacation rental sector

Investment activity in the vacation rental sector, a specific sector within travel tech, is intense.

The growth of platforms such as Airbnb has generated a set of companies and business models focused on providing services to this new holiday model: channel or reservation managers, property managers, ...

Recent operations have refocused on the sector, such as the $8.5 million round closed by Properly, a provider of cleaning services for owners, or the $64 million B series closed by the property manager VACASA.

Such is the attraction of the sector that traditional players such as Accor (hotels) or SOCIMIS (Real Estate Investment Companies) have placed the focus of investment in the vacation rental sector.

The question now is whether this amount of investment will allow the sector to evolve in a healthy way in the medium term.
