If you have been an avid reader of Vulcan Post, you would have came across travelmob, which we wrote about when they launched their new mobile app and when they were giving a hand to help those affected by the Haiyan Typhoon in the Philippines.

For those of you still unfamiliar with this Singapore based company, founded in 2012, travelmob is a social marketplace where travelling “Guests” can locate and book cool places owned by local “Hosts” in Asia Pacific. As long as you own a property, you can rent it out to someone else and earn extra cash. These property spaces can be an extra cozy room, a cool loft or even a private villa.

Similarly, when you travel around in Asia, you can choose to stay at someone else’s house, condominium, or even villas. Peer to peer property renting website has gained an immense popularity lately because guests can develop real connections with their hosts, live like a local and immerse themselves in the culture of their destination.


With the end of the year drawing nearer, since 2013 has been a great year for the team (mostly because the company has been acquired), it is now running a giveaway where you can send a FREE travelmob coupon worth USD 50 to up to 5 of your favourite people in the world.

We all know everyone loves free gifts, just as this survey pointed out, where two-thirds of travellers take items from hotel rooms.

Give the gift of travel   travelmob

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Visit www.travelmob.com/holidays
  2. Enter the email addresses of up to 5 of your friends and loved ones.
  3. Leave a special holiday greeting message.
  4. And send them off to their favourite holiday destination!

Your friends can use the coupons to enjoy US$50 off if they book an accommodation using travelmob, which currently lists over 20,000 properties available for rental.

P/S They have a houseboat available for rent too!

And yes, as the email from travelmob reads:

So go ahead, be Santa Claus and spread the holiday cheer to your friends this Christmas.
