Villy was created to make it easier for people to plan vacations to places they’ve never been before. Rather than spending hours researching hotels and hotspots, Villy gives travelers a way to quickly learn about the best neighborhoods in cities around the globe. The company has partnered with “travel experts” to bring its users insider information and exclusive deals on selected hotels.
Select the city you’re planning to visit, and begin “discovering” what Villy has to offer. To refine its suggestions, Villy invites you to select the things you want to see and do while traveling—for example, to shop or visit museums—along with who you are traveling with and how much money you hope to spend. Based on this information, Villy will recommend neighborhoods for you to visit, ranked with scores that are based on a combination of your preferences and opinions of its “experts.” For more detailed results, enter your vacation dates along Villy’s top panel. You can review a neighborhood list, and see all the hotels Villy has recommended in one place by clicking on the “Hotels” tab.
Villy’s integration with Trip Advisor lets you see the average rating for each hotel it recommends, while Villy’s travel experts provide detailed lists of all the best things to do in the neighborhoods surrounding those hotels. Users who are interested in sharing hidden gems in their own cities can apply to become experts on Villy’s platform.
