JLL has announced plans for JLL Short Stays, a new booking platform that will provide professionally managed and fully flexible short-term rental accommodation across the UK.
Business and leisure travellers can book fully serviced accommodations for periods ranging from three nights to 12 months or more.
JLL Short Stays is a big step forward in JLL’s existing technology cooperation with Lavanda, a proptech firm based in the United Kingdom.
The launch enables the company’s institutional real estate clients and partners to capitalise on the expanding staycation sector and soaring demand for flexible urban lodging, which is being fueled by the pandemic’s ongoing travel restrictions and uncertainty.
The platform creates the groundwork for JLL to deliver even better returns for institutional residential portfolios, giving it a distinct competitive advantage as it looks to aggressively expand its residential business.
JLL Short Stays is now being implemented in the United Kingdom, with a global rollout scheduled for 2022.
“JLL Short Stays offers guests a better value alternative to a hotel or serviced apartment, while 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,” said Sam Winnard, director at JLL.
“This is all wrapped up in a best-in-class online booking experience to deliver a seamless digital guest experience end-to-end.”
