What is the story behind Reservations.com?
I co-founded Reservations.com in 2014 with my partner Mahesh Chaddah. Based on our prior experience, we identified a distinct opportunity to bring the human touch back to online travel. We had the chance to purchase the Reservations.com domain as the foundation for a strong consumer brand from which we could build on this vision.
We started the business in Orlando and currently employ roughly 30 local professionals. We are entirely independent and founder-owned, which allows us the opportunity to invest in the long-term success of the business and our employees. We have grown consistently since inception and currently offer access to over 500,000 hotel properties across 5,000 destinations around the world. We have served nearly 2.5 million travelers and facilitated more than 4 million room nights along the way.
We pride ourselves on delivering a higher level of service than other online travel options within the market. To this end, we have invested heavily in a 24/7 call center that is available to all of our customers. Our travel agents are trained to assist with complicated reservations and answer questions about upcoming travel plans.
It has been incredible to see what we have been able to accomplish over the last 5-years. This has only been possible with the fierce dedication of our team. The Orlando community has provided us with a terrific pool of talent. Many of our employees have been with us for multiple years and we are happy to call them our friends as well as our colleagues. We are incredibly excited about what the future holds for Reservations.com!
