Online PR News – 09-March-2016 – Syracuse, March 8,2016 – StayBillety, a startup redefining the online accommodation model, announces the launch of its affordable service at Syracuse University‚Äôs Blackstone LaunchPad. Whether traveling to see your favorite team in the playoffs or searching for off-campus housing, this service builds community by allowing travelers to book lodging accommodations with like-minded hosts.
CEO and Founder, Barbara Jones, had one goal in mind when envisioning StayBillety: to break down the barriers to participation by providing an accommodation service that would connect communities. StayBillety invites people with shared interests to join the sharing economy. With StayBillety, hockey moms can host other hockey moms, marathoners may stay with other runners for their out-of-town race, and university alumni are able to connect with other alum when traveling. The StayBillety leadership team, through their own sports and arts involvement, has billeted, been billeted and has made life-long friends through communities of interest.
StayBillety offers unique features you won‚Äôt find in other online accommodation sites. Along with traditional location search, StayBillety features unique functionality linking guests with affiliated groups, organizations and events. Travelers are able to post accommodation requests tied to such groups, organizations and events. StayBillety builds community by increasing involvement in ‚Äėhometown‚Äô events by engaging both local hosts and visiting guests and each of these parties provides reviews of their experiences. Organizations benefit financially through each affiliate-tagged transaction completed through StayBillety. In addition, StayBillety members select a national charity to receive a percentage of revenue each month.
Carolyn Waldo, a two-time Canadian Olympic gold medalist and StayBillety co-founder, says, ‚ÄúI started competing nationally at age 14. Had StayBillety been in business when I was competing, it would have saved my family time and money and we would have expanded our community of supporters and friends.‚ÄĚ
