European-wide Travel tech business DayBreakHotels, to offer UK guests the option of a ‘day break’ instead of the traditional overnight hotel stay, as it looks to shift how consumers view and use hotel rooms and facilities...

DayBreakHotels is the world's first online marketplace selling hotel rooms, apartments and luxury ancillary services on a modular basis and at a fraction of the standard room-per-night price. The platform, which launched in Italy back in 2013, before expanding across Europe, offers guests the option of a ‘day break’ instead of an overnight stay, making it possible to enjoy all the glamour of a hotel stay at a fraction of the cost.

Guests looking for a room simply search for their chosen location, choose which facilities they want to add on, such as spa access or a swimming pool, and select a date, daybreakhotelsbefore being shown available hotels. Day rooms are available between 9am and 12pm, with users able to save up to 75% on a room or service’s usual cost. Overnight rooms can also be booked between 10pm and 6am. Other facilities such as pools, spas and restaurants can be booked independently, or in addition to a day use room.

The model allows hotels to maximise their capacity, opening up bookings to a new market of ‘staycationers’ during times where rooms are traditionally under-utilised. And, through their integrated system of offering additional services to customers, hotels are able to further the potential for new revenue streams.

Co-founder and CEO of DayBreakHotels, Simon Botto, said:

“There are so many beautiful hotels around the world with amazing facilities on offer, but most overnight guests are rarely able to enjoy them properly and many others would love to experience the luxury of a hotel stay, but can’t spare the money or the time. With DayBreakHotels, we’re opening up the possibilities when it comes to hotel stays, making these amazing venues far more accessible and attracting a new segment of the market."

169 hotels across 7 cities have already signed up to the DayBreakHotels UK network, with a total of 3,000 hotels making up their global reach.

Following their success in being shortlisted to the final 5 in the Expedia Hotel JumpStart competition (which also included the Startacus featured Stasher), DayBreakHotels have ambitious plans to expand their UK presence and put the concept of the ‘day break’ firmly on the map for the British public.
