Rakuten Group, Inc.
Over 100,000 rooms have been registered on the accommodation/private lodging reservation site “Vacation STAY”! Started full-scale handling of overseas accommodation facilities
– Simultaneous holding of “100,000 points division” and “10 times points reduction” campaigns-
Rakuten LIFULL STAY Co., Ltd. (hereafter referred to as “Rakuten LIFULL STAY”) is pleased to announce that the number of registered rooms in Japan has exceeded 100,000. Going forward, we will continue to work to expand the number of registrations, and in light of the easing of immigration restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic by various countries, we will begin selling overseas accommodation facilities in earnest. To commemorate this, two types of campaigns will be held simultaneously from Monday, October 3, 2022, where you can earn “Rakuten Points” for domestic and overseas reservations. Four years have passed since “Vacation STAY” was opened in conjunction with the enforcement of the Private Lodging Business Act on June 15, 2018, and as of August 31, 2022, the number of registered rooms has exceeded 100,000. I was. It is about 1.5 times (+48%) compared to the same period of the previous year, and is trending upward even in the corona crisis. When lodging and private lodging facilities are listed on this site, inventory is automatically supplied to accommodation reservation services such as the travel reservation service “Rakuten Travel” (Note). As a sales channel, we were particularly praised for promoting cooperation with the site controller, which centrally manages inventory and fees, etc. for sales through the site. Looking at registered facilities by type, detached houses such as “detached houses” and “cottages” increased by 36% year-on-year, and group types such as “apartments/condominiums” and “hotels” increased by 26% year-on-year. Both are increasing steadily, and the ratio of detached house types in all registered facilities
accounts for about half.
In addition, Rakuten LIFULL STAY will start full-scale sales of overseas accommodation facilities in “Vacation STAY” in anticipation of a recovery in demand for overseas travel due to the relaxation of immigration restrictions due to the corona pandemic. First of all, we will start selling accommodations in the United States (Hawaii, Guam), Thailand, Singapore, and Australia from Monday, October 3rd. There are about 500 registered facilities (as of October 1), and we plan to expand the number of facilities and areas in the future.
Rakuten LIFULL STAY will continue to increase the number of accommodation and vacation rental facilities registered with “Vacation STAY”. In particular, we will provide a wide range of accommodation options to travelers from various countries, including Japan, by strengthening the registration of single-family rentals and
single-family homes, both in Japan and overseas, for which demand has increased due to the corona crisis.
