Accommodation Guru Goes International

With Australian Trials Complete, the Accommodation Guru Online
Booking System is Now Being Licensed Worldwide

May 05, 2009, Sydney, Australia – Following completion of successful trials in Australia, Accommodation Guru ( has begun its foray into the international marketplace. This industrial strength online reservation system is now being licensed in the UK, Europe and beyond as an increasing number of individuals seek opportunity in the burgeoning online travel accommodation business.

“To date, the response has been absolutely overwhelming,” says Dave Upton, founder of Accommodation Guru. “We’ve finalized licensing agreements in France, Germany, Spain, Greece and the UK. We also have new licensees in South Africa, the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas and Mexico, and have recently added Bermuda, among other regions.”

According to Upton, Accommodation Guru’s soaring popularity, in part, stems from a growing wave of people who are looking for business opportunities beyond the standard 9-5 workday. “More people today want a lifestyle business, one that provides for virtually unlimited income as well as tremendous flexibility in hours—not to mention great personal satisfaction. Since it costs very little to establish and is so easy to maintain, Accommodation Guru makes this kind of lifestyle attainable for normal, everyday people—not just those with significant capital to invest.”

“Essentially what we’re talking about is the democratization of supply,” Upton explains. “In the early days, airlines controlled the distribution of travel content through the computer reservations systems (now called Global Distribution Systems). That gave the airlines a near-monopoly of the accommodation market. But that’s no longer the case. Accommodation Guru is now leveling the playing field – it’s game-changing technology.

Upton reports that additional Accommodation Guru licences are at various stages of enquiry throughout the world, including North America, where the company recently conducted a widespread marketing campaign.
