About Holidu

Johannes and Michael Siebers launched Holidu in Munich in 2014 following a disappointing experience they had when trying to reserve a holiday flat for a surfing trip to Portugal. The brothers saw that many of the lodging options were available at varying costs and on many websites. Lack of transparency and schedule coordination was a major cause of confusion and annoyance for both hosts and visitors.
