How to reach LODGEA support?
There are many easy-to-use tools out there that allow people with no coding skills to set up their own websites. Building a blog with WordPress, a website with Wix or an ecommerce store with Shopify is easy going.
However, until now, there has been no similar solution that would allow you to build a direct booking website for your accommodation business. Hoteliers, vacation rental managers and campsite operators have had to rely on large OTAs. LODGEA aims to change this.
LODGEA supports up to 79 languages and 49 currencies. Customer Support is provided in German and English.
Let LODGEA help you to succeed at building a strong direct channel!
