About us

travelmob.com is a social marketplace where travelling "Guests" can locate and book cool places owned by local "Hosts" in Asia Pacific. The unique places can be an extra cozy room, a cool loft or even a private villa. Guests can develop real connections with their hosts, live like a local and immerse themselves in the culture of their destination.

In July 2013, travelmob was acquired by HomeAway, Inc. (Nasdaq: AWAY), the world’s leading online marketplace for vacation rentals. As part of the HomeAway family, we are continuing with our mission to reach out to global travellers who want an authentic travel experience in Asia Pacific.
