To provide affordable short stay homes for travelers and a means to earn extra income for home owners
To power the alternative travel solution where regular people will no longer be afraid to travel because of exorbitant hotel rates
A fresh graduate straight out of the National Youth Service, I had taken a night bus to Abuja from Enugu to pick up my NYSC discharge certificate from the NYSC HQ in Abuja. My plan was to pick up the certificate the next morning, then board the morning bus back to Enugu. Alas, that plan of mine failed! I learned that the key officers in charge of issuing NYSC discharge certificate had traveled out of town for 3 days on some kind of official assignment. Need I add that I had no plan B?
Stranded on the streets of Abuja, I had no one to call and had no money to check into a standard hotel in town. To cut what would be a long story short, I ended up traveling about an hour to the outskirt of town to find a really low-budget hotel where I spent 3 nights.
This experience got me thinking of creating an alternative lodging solution for travelers in Nigeria who like me might also not have the wherewithal to afford standard hotels in some locations. In the end, my team and I sat down and came up with an idea of Lodger.ng which was later rebranded as Airbnb Homes Nigeria to encompass the scope of our service.
