Exclusive Dialogue with HomeAway’s
Dan Lynn
  Dan has spent most of his career in online travel. He currently leads the HomeAway APAC business, which incorporates Stayz in Australia, Bookabach in New Zealand, and HomeAway Asia as well as a stake in Tujia in China.
Dan started his career with McKinsey UK and spent 8 years at Expedia in different countries, later coming to Singapore as the 1st CEO of AirAsiaExpedia where he set up its Asia Pacific operations.
Dan offers his thoughts on the global online travel markets and how rapidly these have evolved.
In today’s travel market, competition is stiff and consumer expectations continue to rise. In an industry where the experience is everything, how does a portal like HomeAway differentiate itself from the competition?
I think principally in three ways.

The most important way is we have inventory that nobody else has. Most online travel players have the same standard hotel rooms. With vacation rentals you get to stay in unique homes, and get a vastly more unique, private and comfortable experience. There are almost no global players with the breadth and depth of the very best whole homes that we have. We have more than a million beautiful homes all around the world, and these offer a more affordable way for a family to get the space they need than a hotel.
