noun | informal
A holiday spent in one's home country rather than abroad.
Think Airbnb meets Lonely Planet meets travel agency.
We've curated a 'wish list' of beautiful places to stay across Germany, we share our favourite things to do (and ask local experts to share their tips, too), and we run a recommendation service to match members with properties that suit their needs and tastes.
Lots of great things! Firstly, you get access to all of our properties' booking details (and hidden content about the properties, such as why we love it and what you can do in the areas). You also can ask our travel experts for recommendations of where to stay (simply send us your requirements).
We also work with partners to provide you with exclusive perks, including discounted nights away and holiday-at-home goodies (check out the 'For members' page to view our current partners). We also send a member's-only newsletter with lots of inspiration and tips on where to travel.
Many large booking sites charge a huge commission. As we work with small, independently run properties, we decided we didn't want to do this. Your membership fee covers our running costs and allows us to keep hunting out special places to stay to share with you.
By paying a membership fee, you get the contact details of the properties and can book your holiday directly. This means you always get the best nightly rate and you know that 100% of your booking money goes to the owners.
Yes! There is no obligatory minimum period that you have to subscribe for. Whether you want to be a member for a month or years, we're happy to have you in the club.
To cancel, simply go to the 'Your account' page (link in the footer) and hit cancel. Do note that we are not able to issue refunds.
As with all things in life, there are no guarantees, but that said, we have a very good track record of finding our members their perfect holiday property on dates that they want at a price that works for them.
You can get a taste of whether we have something to suit your needs by visiting the 'Places to stay' page and searching our collection using the filtering system.
Many of the properties we feature are really tiny and don't use an online availability calendar. We know this can be frustrating, which is why - when you ask for a travel recommendation for specific dates - our experts will only share properties that have availability on your dates.
You can also search our collection for properties that do list their availability, and for those that you can book instantly (instead of having to email).
