CollegeWeekends is an innovative and easy-to-use short-term rental platform that connects visitors (alumni, fans, parents of students, tourists) to college towns throughout the U.S. with lodging rentals. CollegeWeekends has also developed and curated over 100 blogs for renters to help maximize their weekend visit, including recommendations on dining, reviews on activities and attractions, and an interactive map. CollegeWeekends rental options are often more comfortable and spacious, provide unique amenities, and accommodate families and groups, making them an attractive alternative to traditional lodging.
Chesapeake, VA., July 11th 2022 – CollegeWeekends, a short-term rental platform that connects visitors to lodging rentals in college town markets across the U.S., has launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on Wefunder. The company is raising funds to expand into more markets, continue to add additional features and increase brand awareness by launching targeted marketing campaigns.
CollegeWeekends is a short-term rental platform with a mission to help visitors to college towns maximize their stay by providing great listings and excellent travel information with an easy-to-navigate platform.
“College towns often deal with large influxes of visitors during certain periods of the year, particularly during sports weekends, and lack good or quality options to adequately support lodging needs,” said President and CEO John Cunningham. “CollegeWeekends rental options are often more comfortable and spacious, and provide unique amenities, like a full kitchen, living room, and more, to accommodate families and groups. This makes them an attractive alternative to traditional lodging.”
CollegeWeekends has also developed and curated over 100 blogs for renters to help maximize their weekend visit, including recommendations on dining, reviews on activities and attractions, and an interactive map. CollegeWeekends is also integrated with flexible payment options for renters through its partnership with Affirm.com.
“The short-term rental industry has seen a significant shift in the past few years, with many people turning to this form of lodging over hotels,” said Cunningham. “This market is projected to grow exponentially as more tourists seek affordable alternatives near their destination or while traveling abroad.”
CollegeWeekends differentiates itself from competitors by alleviating some of the frustrations customers experience with other platforms by offering enhanced filtering, restaurant guides and directories, interactive mapping, unique content and blogs, and extended stay options for straightforward, transparent pricing. CollegeWeekends is also integrated with flexible payment options for renters. In addition to these benefits, the platform offers a robust amount of additional features such as a trustworthy two-way rating system, streamlined social sharing, discount codes, and custom add-on packages – all focusing on owners, but built for renters visiting college towns.
“We see CollegeWeekends.com as a meaningful platform to provide more useful content and tools to help visitors truly maximize their college town visit experience, ” said Cunningham. “Recently, CollegeWeekends has seen an expansion in markets to include youth sports and events. In these markets, large influxes of people arrive for a short period, much like in college towns. Travelers for tournaments often choose short-term rentals over hotels because they provide more amenities, are more comfortable, and can be shared among several families.”
