New OTA Set to Shake Up the Australian Property Rights Market

March 24, 2017 OTA News No Comments Email Email

It’s no secret that technology is rapidly influencing the way Australian’s search and book accommodation online, and that this trend of digital disruption will persist long into the future. Recognising this, a brand new Australian owned and operated online travel agency (OTA) is poised to make their own mark, causing further disruption, but this time it comes with greater rewards for property managers.

Slated for public release in early 2017, Jump on and Stay is Australia’s newest, user-friendly online booking engine devoted to helping property rights managers retain more revenue from every night sold.

Jump on and Stay’s consumer messaging will inspire national discovery and uplift the hearts of Australian travellers. The team will achieve this by consistently updating and optimising their industry-best, highly intuitive online accommodation booking experience. The brainchild of long-time rights manager Graeme Hollonds and software developer Darren Fryer, Jump on and Stay has announced a number of key benefits to property managers and are offering a ground-breaking 9% commission rate for managers that make the jump before the platform is launched. This industry-best rate will be followed up by a highly competitive ongoing rate of 10%, which will automatically be taken via direct debit at a time that suits the property’s management software, saving time, money and headaches for managers.

“We understand the challenges that face today’s property managers, and have planned over a number of years to create something special that will enhance, not degrade, the property management sector. In time, we’re confident that Jump on and Stay will drive onwards to become Australia’s preferred domestic accommodation booking platform”, said Graeme Hollonds, Founder.

Co-Founder Darren Fryer says, it involves a simple online registration process (which is available now at which will link Jump on and Stay through the property’s preferred channel manager and which incurs absolutely no fee to sign up. An interactive help desk is available to guide managers through the registration process, which allows each property to apply their own individual bookings terms and conditions (including deposit and cancellation policies).

The engine is designed with usability of the end-consumer in mind, and provides obvious functions including secure credit card facilities, with all bookings being sent directly to the manager on their terms, and the property holds all money, including deposits.

The benefits are multi-faceted and everyone wins.
Australian customers buying accommodation online have felt starved of a truly engaging, highly intuitive booking platform that best helps them search, compare and book suitable accommodation for any trip.

The Jump on and Stay booking engine will really connect with locals by providing an enjoyable, reliable experience that satisfied customers will actively talk about and share within different communities. The team at “JOS” (as it’s affectionately known) believe that all travel, whether for business or leisure, should invoke feelings of comfort, excitement and a sense of adventure.

From a technical standpoint, the platform integrates a range of useful user-generated data from Facebook, Yelp and Google’s many offerings in ways that have not been seen before. The data the system pulls through is then applied, through a complex matrix, to intuitively present options to customers, helping them make the best purchase decision possible. The engine is able to leverage real-time digital buying behaviours of guests to enhance both initial and repeat sales.

“Ultimately, we are giving whole communities of people the perfect level of choice in how, where and why they book travel. We understand the importance of being connected to the community where you’re travelling to.

“Australia is a unique land, full of characterful places, people and moments. At our heart is a deep sense of national pride and we want to inspire locals to explore their own backyards”, said Graeme.

With reduced commission rates, properties can choose to pass these savings on to guests or retain the savings, increasing their profit line. Jump on and Stay also provide 24-hour support for customers, ensuring a refined customer experience is front of mind at all times.

Why not make the jump?
