A trip is close to being flawless when everything is planned well— from the things you bring to your itinerary. But of course, however prepared you are, you cannot do away with things you cannot control. There’s delayed flight, last-minute changes in hotel accommodations, or worst, you end up in an unfamiliar city in the middle of the night! These unfortunate scenarios were the springboard of young entrepreneurs who
wanted a solution to this dilemma. Swiss entrepreneur Christian Mischler was splitting his time between Bangkok and Singapore, spending countless nights in hotels while working for Rocket Internet’s FoodPanda. He noticed that he wasn’t alone in wanting a quick fix for his hotel needs. Clearly, the world seems to have a growing interest in last-minute booking. Around the world, services were sprouting to support the trend, so Christian started building a company to support the needs of spontaneous travellers in Asia-Pacific. In 2012, his former classmate Tomas Laboutka became the fledgling company’s Chief Executive Officer; Raphael Cohen the Chief Security Officer; Mario Peng the Chief Financial Officer; and Michal Juhas the Chief Technology Officer. The first-ever last-minute hotel booking app, which was recently launched in the country, offers easy booking on hotels in Asia right at the swipe of your fingertips.
