NomadX is merging with Flatio 🆕
We are excited to announce a strategic agreement has been reached to merge NomadX with Flatio.
Hello from NomadX,We hope everyone is doing well and planning to get back to your nomadic lifestyles, hopefully sometime in the near future, if you haven’t done so already. At NomadX, we understand it’s got to be difficult for those unable to travel during this health pandemic and the associated economic impact. During our downtime, we’ve been working hard at NomadX to assess the best path forward for the business, technology and team. Additionally, we’re focused on strengthening our active and rapidly growing community of guests, hosts, remote workers and the broader digital nomad community throughout the world. We believe we’ve found a great solution and we are excited to announce a strategic agreement has been reached to merge NomadX with Flatio. Flatio is a European based mid-term real estate rental company for professionals, students and digital nomads with listings in 17 countries and over 60 cities, primarily throughout Europe. Flatio, like NomadX, has rapidly been growing in 2020 and its strongest presence is found in Prague, Budapest and other top European cities. At NomadX, we didn’t think it made sense to reinvent the wheel, so we decided to join forces. Flatio offers the most advanced mid-term technology platform and proven backend that we found in the industry. So, we decided to merge our platform assets into the tech which will be used to power the NomadX.com housing platform moving forward. We expect the full transition of all host, guest and user assets to take until the end of 2020, so please be patient with us during this transition process. We are working hard to try to make this as smooth as possible. Over the next couple of weeks, guests, hosts and our community will be notified more about the migration process and given the opportunity to opt-out, should you not choose to participate in this transition. All active guest reservations will be discontinued after November 2020, which will be our top priority in this transition. The NomadX Operation Team will be working closely with hosts and guests during the transition process to make this as smooth an experience as possible for all involved. The highlights of the NomadX / Flatio merger are:
- Merger of assets to be completed by end of 2020, following on-boarding process;
- NomadX.com will be powered by Flatio technology;
- NomadX.com to integrate all Flatio listings across all markets to expand geographic reach of NomadX across Europe;
- NomadX will continue to focus on the rapidly growing remote work and digital nomad growth markets;
- NomadX Operations Team will join Flatio’s Operations Team;
- NomadX to phase-out the use of its technology platform over the next few months (and look to sell it if anyone’s interested please contact us) ;
- NomadX will offer special rental discounts to its dedicated NomadX community members. Just go to nomadx.com, choose your next destination and use the code NomadXLife at the check-out.
