A breath of fresh air for the online market of hotel stays

The current market for hotel stays is broken. Moonback is here to bring back balance, providing a new booking environment that brings guests and hotel owners together. We’re not the middleman – we only support the booking process with fair rules for all players involved. With Moonback, guests are able to smoothly and easily book their stay – for which the chosen hotel pays us a fair platform fee. Guests and hotels can contact each other directly at all times. To us at Moonback, this is only natural. After all, Moonback is a crowd-funded and steward-owned company. For us, our mission always comes before profit.

These are the 5 principles that make us unique

Everything is subject to change, except for our mission to set a new standard for online platforms.

Making money is allowed, but not at all costs.

We separate profit rights and voting rights, and ensure our company cannot be acquired.

No stress! We believe in a positive user experience.

Fair play with everyone’s interests at heart.
