It was a busy year for Bidroom. At the beginning of 2016 we have set many goals for ourselves and we managed to reach them all with the help of many wonderful people determined to make our platform as great as it is now.
We have been very fortunate to have the perfect team, willing to go great distance to learn, improve and make Bidroom into something special. We also feel very lucky to have gained support of people from outside the company.
We would like to take this moment to thank all the hotels who joined our platform and the users who book with us every day proving that all the work was definitely worth it!
We wanted to create something special, to grow into a new type of a company, focused on the needs of its customers, a platform that is fresh and fair. We believe we did it in 2016, and we are ready to enter 2017 with even more power and passion to keep on improving and spreading our message across. We want the travel industry to be a fair place where people can cooperate and focus on what is our passion – travels.
