Direct Booker currently has 22 franchises in 8 countries that include Montenegro, BiH, Slovenia, Serbia, Albania, Poland and Peru. “Rentals United is a well-known and recognized system for managing accommodation units, and being ranked 10th in size is a huge recognition for us as a company, as well as for Croatian tourism. Our goal is to further franchise and grow accommodation units so that Direct Booker is recognized everywhere in the world”Said Nino Dubretić, co-owner and director of Direct Booker. Rentals United ranked Direct Booker among the TOP 10 largest private accommodation agencies in the world and TOP 4 in Europe. As the main reason for this, Dubretić points out that this is a specific service that relies on local presence and physical presence with the owner of the accommodation unit. “We have developed our model in Dubrovnik, and are currently expanding it worldwide through the franchise model. We currently manage over 3.500 accommodation units, our franchisors with the same number, while with 7.000 accommodation units we are on the Rentals United list”Concludes Dubretić. Interestingly, the 20 largest agencies in the world hold less than 2% of the entire market, which is, say, in the context of the banking system just the opposite where the 20 largest hold the majority of the market.
