One of the critical elements to the sharing economy is trust. The nature of peer to peer transactions means that trust and confidence are essential to the success of the platform.
CertiStay is a new company that directly services the travel sharing economy by providing third party safety and security certification for short term property rentals as well as an array of proprietary insurance products geared towards owners of residential rental properties.
CertiStay’s detailed audit criteria has been reviewed by certain municipalities as a way of offering confidence and peace of mind for both rental property owners and guests in the travel sharing economy.
This innovative platform is headed by travel industry veteran Terry Jones who founded the massively successful Travelocity platform and was founding Chairman of travel website KAYAK!
Travel and tech expertise rounds out CertiStay’s leadership including:
- Salil Munjal – Exited Leitch Technology, the TSX/NASDAQ-listed global networking technology company (sold for $600 million)
- Alex Clark – Cofounder of Bit Stew Systems Inc. recently sold to GE Digital ($207.5 Million USD)
CertiStay is uniquely situated to take the pole position in the overlap created between the two hot button areas of safety and security and the short term rental property market through a well-constructed forward plan designed for scalability and the creation of recurring net revenue, which will unfold regionally to ultimate global penetration. CertiStay is perfectly positioned to be the beneficiary of regulatory reform at the municipal level forcing short term rental owners to comply with new regulations.
