StreetGooser launches B2C online platform GYPZE.com

A recent entrant in the cloud-based hotel management software domain, StreetGooser, will now launch GYPZE.com – a booking platform dedicated to experiential stays – on 14 February, 2021. It will offer booking options for under-the-radar luxury boutique home stays, villas and resorts. John Varghese, CEO and Founder, GYPZE.com, says, “All travellers have to do is choose from a select array of homestays, villas and resorts across the globe. Our bouquet of offerings include quality, secure and safe accommodation in off-trail often secret locations, known only to the discerning traveller. An added advantage is that GYPZE.com can be accessed on your mobile too.” GYPZE.com vets each property to see if it meets the company’s stringent quality standards. As per Varghese, boutique properties offering experiential stays face unique challenges – lack of online exposure, absence of a platform that focuses on experiential stays and one which highlights the USPs of each property. Without the marketing muscle of chain hotels, off-beat hideaways have to pay higher commissions to booking engines and travel agents yet have very little customer support.
