WA HomeStay and Quipmo Sign Commercial Partnership
Quipmo and Western Australian startup – WA Homestay, have today announced a strategic partnership which will make travel in WA even more amazing!
This partnership is a significant step for both businesses, increasing market reach and penetration for each business right across Western Australia. WA Homestay has properties listed around the state and this partnership provides a great opportunity for WA Homestay guests. Having easy access to great adventure gear will allow guests to get the most out of their holidays in beautiful WA!
Amanda Walker’s love for Western Australia and experience as a holiday home owner, led to her founding WA HomeStay…
“I spoke to other accommodation providers and they felt the same way I did. The fees the international platforms are charging are too high and their customer service is poor,” she said. “WA HomeStay was born as I believe a local platform that cares about the local community can offer a better service for less”.
A genuine love for the amazing holiday destinations in WA and wanting to share those with her guests is what drives Amanda. Initially starting in the South West, WA HomeStay’s listings have expanded to include the Peel region, Jurien Bay and more.
Of the Strategic Partnership, Amanda says “it is a great way to add value to my guests’ holiday experience and support another WA start up at the same time. The South West, in particular, is a world renowned outdoor adventure destination. By partnering with Quipmo, our guests can rent anything from an ebike, to a SUP, kayak or surfboard and more to enjoy the region without the hassle of transporting bulky gear.”
Chris states “We’re absolutely thrilled to be partnering with WA Homestay to make it easier for people to do more of what they love, more often. This partnership offers something for the whole family – holidays just became easier, and more fun!”
Both Chris and Amanda agree that while COVID-19 has created enormous challenges for the world’s tourism industry, they are both incredibly optimistic about the domestic travel market. Amanda says “the variety of natural beauty that WA possesses is second to none”, and Chris offers “I think this period has really opened many people’s eyes to how very lucky we are to have WA as our backyard – there really has never been a better time to go and explore it and to enjoy an adventure.”
