UK Startup Staylists Partners With Mail Travel

Mail Travel has partnered with UK technology company Staylists to launch Mail Breaks – a new holiday portal offering a range of quality hotels and B&Bs across the UK.

Staylists enables any brand to diversify into travel; offering their customers a new product by plugging into an inventory of hundreds of quality hotels and B&Bs across the UK.

Founder and CEO, Adrian Melrose, said: “More companies are choosing to diversify their brands. Uber recently launched ‘UberEats’ and Airbnb launched ‘Experiences.’ Offering holidays to existing customers gives brands the opportunity for higher engagement, higher retention rate and an additional revenue stream.

“Our exciting partnership with Mail Travel gives hoteliers a valuable way to sell online to a large and loyal customer base.”

Hoteliers can start offering their rooms to Mail Breaks’ customers and other brands by signing up for an account on the Staylists platform. Tourism is one of the largest industries in the world, accounting for around 10% of global GDP. And, stats aside, people just love booking a holiday or a couple of nights away with their partner, family or friends.

Staylists gives brands the opportunity to bring the joy of booking a break to their customers – via a white-label platform that is infinitely customisable, managed and hosted by Staylists and promoted by the brand. The booking platform manages the entire process, from designing an infinitely customisable site to finding the right property owners for your offer. Staylists takes a small commission on each booking and shares this with the brand. About Staylists: 

Founded in 2017, Staylists provides a platform for brands to offer holiday bookings to their customers, whilst delivering quality bookings for hotels and B&Bs.
