¡Hola!/Olá! Here’s the news many of you have been waiting for: we’re officially launching in Spain and Portugal!
Spain is one of the world’s leading travel destinations, and the vacation rental markets in both Spain and Portugal have been steadily growing over the past decade. This growth has especially accelerated in 2020/21, as travelers opted for the greater comfort and privacy that short-term rentals offer when compared to hotels.
With Spain being the 4th largest market for vacation rental in the world, and Portugal undergoing a tourism boom, we’ve seen a lot of organic interest from hosts and property managers in the region right from the start. We’re proud to now be launching in Spain and Portugal to help our new and existing customers protect their rental properties, enhance guest experience and grow their businesses while promoting responsible travel.
“In the past 2 years, we’ve seen a fantastic response to our product in the US and UK markets, with hosts and property managers clearly appreciating our role in supporting responsible growth of the vacation rental industry. We’re now bringing the knowledge and experience we’ve gained to Spain and Portugal, following our mission to make short-term rental work for hosts, guests and neighbors worldwide.” - Nils Mattisson, Minut CEO and Co-founder
Ahead of the launch, we’ve reached out to some of our customers in Spain and Portugal to hear how Minut helps them host happy. Here’s what they said:
“Minut gives me the peace of mind of knowing that the travelers are enjoying the apartment responsibly, without disturbing the neighbors. And when they aren’t, I’ll be the first to know and solve it.” - The Carpenter Jerez, host
“I’m very happy with this product. The devices are easy to install and manage via the app. In addition to its value in alerting in real time, it also acts as a deterrent.” - Manuel López Barnés, property manager
Our launch in Spain and Portugal will allow us to bring that invaluable peace of mind to more hosts and PMs in the region. We’ve already partnered up with AVAEC, Rurales Data and DoInn to make sure our reach and impact are as wide as possible.
We will also be attending the Vitur Summit in Málaga later this week, so if you’re around and would like to learn more about the launch or collaboration opportunities, let us know on one of our brand new email addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org (Spanish) and email@example.com (Portuguese).
