FlatClub Reviews-Nitzan Yudan
Nitzan Yudan

One of the most successful travel startups recently was established in 2010 by Nitzan Yudan and Tomer Kalish. Nitzan has 12 years of experience in financial services, IT and tourism. He’s also an MBA holder from London Business School and is a Magna Cum Laude in Industrial Engineering & Management from Ben Gurion University, Israel. Nitzan is an avid traveler and backpacked for over 2 years in 5 continents.

His co-founder Tomer Kalish has 10 years of experience in Real Estate in London, USA, and Israel. Tomer holds a BSc in civil engineering (Magna Cum Laude), and an MBA from the London Business School. The two founders met each other at London Business School.

Nitzan Yudan set up the company after his own experience of renting out his home. He actually said “I wanted to rent out my flat but I didn’t want to get someone off the street. I wanted someone I could trust but still charge.”

Find a Flat with FlatCub

The privately-held travel business is headquartered in London, England. FlatClub is an online marketplace to help students and alumni of top universities find medium-term renting by leveraging existing social networks to create trust.

Basically, FlatClub is like other property rental sites which help customers search for their preferred location and connect to the hosts or the owner of the property. In 2014, FlatClub had plans on launching a mobile app to further expand their business. But, until now, there are no updates if the travel app is in process or almost done.

In case you might be wondering why they use the word ‘Flat,’ it’s because they are referring to an apartment, home, or room in the world’s most popular cities to work, study, and play. Or a place someone can rent with. So, with the word ‘club; next to it, it means a travel site like Airbnb but more on members or hosts and guests getting to know each other.

FlatClub Reviews of Consumers

After reading and checking through FlatClub reviews, results show that 97% of its consumers are recommending people to use FlatClub. Word of mouth is really effective, because it worked for my friend too, who recently booked with FlatClub and was happy with her overall stay. She even compared FlatClub with Airbnb. Good thing about FlatClub, not only guests have the say, even hosts can freely give feedback of the deals made with the guests booked on FlatClub.

As we mentioned before, there are new several travel startups nowadays. Not all of these had been successful after 2-3 years. But, FlatClub was different. They stood out, they were able to make it through the jungle of travel communities. It’s because they know how to value and earn the trust of their customers. Most of all, they know how to keep them too. It started with just common sense. Nitzan Yudan was right, why would you want to rent your property to someone who is randomly booking? Why not make bookers join a club, to know them better before trusting? Nice idea. Kudos to FlatClub.

Wimdu Reviews
Arne Bleckwenn and Hinrich Dreiling
Wimdu is a German-based travel company. It traces its roots back to 2011 when it was registered as GmbH. This travel business was founded by two close friends, Arne Bleckwenn and Hinrich Dreiling. Arne and Hinrich had already founded other business companies together prior to Wimdu. Wimdu received funding from Kinnevik (Swedish investment company) and Rocket Internet (German internet company) amounting to $90 million. This has been recorded to be the largest investment for a European startup in history.

This has lead Wimdu to be the biggest social accommodation website from Europe in 2012. Given its continuous success, in 2014, Bleckwenn and Dreiling decided to step down as the CEOs. It was then that Arne Kahlke and Soren Kress were chosen by them to be the new CEOs, voluntarily handed over at the beginning of 2015. Just so you know, the new CEOs are the ones who founded “ElitePartner”.

What is Wimdu?

As yet growing rapidly, Wimdu has been a leading online platform offering private accommodation for all tastes and budgets. By connecting guests and hosts around the world, Wimdu offers an enjoyable authentic travel experience for those searching for a savvy contrasting option to inns.
Guests can search from 150 countries or 300,000 properties on their search engine. Basically, they just have to enter the keyword of their preferred destination, check-in and out date and number of guests. Wimdu can be interchangeable from English to 15 other languages.

Wimdu Reviews-trustpilotCustomers can guarantee all search results are valid and exclusive since Wimdu has a triple check service wherein they personally visit properties to check the quality of the establishment. Travellers unsure where to go or what to book can also check their option of Recently Booked and Top Destinations.

In a nutshell, Wimdu is the European version of Airbnb wherein customers can search for a decent apartment to rent or rent their own place.

Wimdu Reviews of Customers

However, I am being deceived in a lot of ways since Wimdu shows that their rating on Trustpilot is at 8.9/10, but when we personally checked their standing on Trustpilot, we saw a completely-different storyline. Actually, they are at 4.3/10 and according to 474 Wimdu reviews, the travel site is comparable to Airbnb in the complaint sense. Most of the consumers who posted their concerns here state that Wimdu is a fraud.

As for the name and its meaning of Wimdu, there’s nothing at all. The founders decided on the name over a few beers one evening, on the basis that it was memorable and meant nothing at all.
