The Colombian venture Fliko will be a new platform that will offer the rental of properties for lodging. This app will focus on making it easier for owners to register their properties with Airbnb or Booking.

Fliko will start operations in Bogotá, Cartagena, Medellín and San Andrés next month, but they plan to reach other cities in the country and internationally, with a total of 350,000 guests per year. The platform will charge a commission of 20% for this service and will require the National Registry of Tourism (RNT) to make the registration possible.

"One of the differentials of the platform is that each of the registered properties will have a National Tourism Registry, which certifies that the properties are in the capacity to provide vacation services. This gives a part of tranquility to the owners and boosts the confidence of the platform," said La República, Manuela Uribe, Fliko's business development manager.

VivaGuest.com is another Colombian platform that was recently launched to the market, in order to provide the administration service via Airbnb, also helping in hosting solutions, advising property owners. (VivaGuest.com, the new administration service via Airbnb).

VivaGuest.com was presented as a complementary service that helps increase sales to the "host" of the platform. "We care about the small details, the experience of the visitor and their comfort, the after-sales service, as well as the marketing strategy that manages the operation in a professional and efficient way, both for tourists and for the owners of the accommodations," said previous CEO of VivaGuest.com, Juan Ortega.
