about us

Who we are

We are a customer-driven early stage travel tech start up that is developing a software-as-a-service tool fully optimized for non-professional vacation rental business.

Our solution - VR Pro - is a leading cloud-based software that helps Vacation Rental owners to manage and promote their properties, drive bookings and connect to their guests on all digital platforms.

The first idea to address the vacation rental non-professional market with a powerful lead generation tool came from our CEO and Founder, Rui Escaleira, when he was managing in 2010 a travel business in Lisbon with more than 200 properties. By that time the company needed to allocate a considerable amount of money and effort to property promotion and management.

We are pleased and proud to be deserving the trust of our clients, our partners, our advisory board and investors. We return this confidence with our total dedication to deliver the best value to non-professional owners – more bookings with less effort.

The Vacation Rental business is evolving fast. Trends in economy, society and technology are driving new ways of property promotion, customer’s special interests such as green travel, and some niche travel increase emphasis on personal and local experience and consequently enhance the vacation rental industry procurement and popularity.

We build on these tendencies as our mission to create the most valuable community of non-professional vacation rental property owners to allow them to take full advantage of these trends through our technology, marketing, and promotion tools.
