What is FlatClub?
FlatClub is a medium term rental marketplace with a simple approach to creating trust. Guests and hosts verify membership in their University and Corporate networks - called "clubs" on the site - and choose who to rent with.
We also work closely with many corporate clients to find accommodation for their interns, consultants & employees, including: Microsoft, Google, LEK, Skype, and Metaswitch.
What makes FlatClub unique?
We are market leaders in medium term stays - medium term stays are defined as being between 3 weeks and 6 months.
Unlike any other platform, we give power to the host to select who may view and book their flat. A study by the University of College of London showed that FlatClub's model doubles the potential number of hosts in the medium term rental market.
Our guests are often interns of top companies, corporate employees, consultants, or those coming to do training in European cities or New York.
July 2014: Boris Johnson Launched LiveDemand!
LiveDemand is a new service by FlatClub giving power to visitors. In traditional medium stay marketplaces, hosts create listings and guests browse and book those listings. However, with the addition of LiveDemand, FlatClub will also offer the inverse. Our corporate clients are automatically included in LiveDemand listings. Here's more information on how we built LiveDemand from the ground up.
LiveDemand features include:
- 17 employees & 10 nationalities, all HQ'd at Google Campus London.
- 75,000 members & 40,000 flats as of 2015.
- Proud member of the London Business School Incubator.
- The average stay on FlatClub is 30 days, as many of our customers use our service not only during vacation, but during business trips, internships, or medium or long-term relocation to a new city.
- FlatClub is working in collaboration with over 50 top universities including London Business School, INSEAD, Columbia, NYU & ESCP.
