JLL has just unveiled JLL Short Stays - a booking platform offering professionally managed and flexible short-term rental accommodation in towns and cities across the UK. Business and leisure travellers are able to book fully-serviced accommodation for flexible stays ranging from just three nights to 12+ months via a simple and familiar “Airbnb-style” experience.
JLL Short Stays is a significant development in its partnership with Lavanda, the UK proptech company. The timely launch allows JLL’s institutional real estate clients and partners to capitalise on the booming staycation market and soaring demand for flexible urban accommodation fuelled by continuing travel restrictions and uncertainty linked to the pandemic. JLL Short Stays is currently being rolled out in the UK, with a broader global roll-out envisaged in 2022.
Sam Winnard, director at JLL, comments: “JLL Short Stays offers guests a better value alternative to a hotel or serviced apartment, whilst at the same time providing exclusive access to premium urban accommodation professionally managed by the world’s most trusted blue chip operators - including Greystar, Blackstone, and CA Ventures. We have big ambitions for our Short Stays platform, and I’m excited to develop it alongside our network of corporate travel bookers into a primary channel of corporate rental demand.”
