The concept of Alternative to hotel was borne from an idea that we had as a family whilst holidaying in the Caribbean, it has take many years to come to fruition, but we were possibly the first to float the idea of families worldwide who can share or rent their spare room capacity to accommodate budget conscious travellers.
Our family, with its mix of adventurers and explorers, can be described as the original Swiss family Robinson. There was a general consensus that it would be a fantastic idea of others can experience what we were experiencing as a family, to wake up to a 5.30 am warm sunrise followed by a 6 am morning swim, and solitary stroll through the rain forest, this would be the ideal way to revitalise the inner soul.
Upon our arrival in our host country we set about with passion, the task of selecting a team of enthusiastic people to participate in the construction of Alternative To Hotel. We had no knowledge of writing software or programming, so we enlisted the help of friends and associates, and soon realised that we were in over our heads and that the task at hand was enormous and due to a lack of funds and the necessary expertise the project and development took many years to complete, whilst others got their product to market way before we were able to do so.
We are a very easy organisation to work with, and would welcome members’ ideas; our aim is to build a global community of likeminded hosts and travellers. Who can provide affordable accommodation to budget conscious travellers, to worldwide destinations, with the benefits shared amongst our members.
We do this by empowering the home owner to utilise their spare capacity to earn unparalleled extra income by offering their spare room capacity. We are faced with a worldwide problem of the high cost of travel, and this has an impact on the average family budget, very often it is unaffordable for families to give their children the chance to experience other cultures and travel, this can have a negative impact on their social development.
Our dedicated team of members around the world is on standby to assist and promote our aims. So join us and experience what we are all About.
From the eyes of our granddaughters these are the spitting images of the staff at Alternative To Hotel.
