Travel has always been a driving passion for our CEO, Onur Takmak. Having lived and worked in Istanbul, New York, Switzerland and London and travelled all over the world, most of his lasting memories come from his adventures overseas. He strongly believes that seeing different cultures and ways of life, as well as experiencing environments elevates our own sense of curiosity and happiness and with that comes lifelong memories. ONEE Luxury Travel was born out of this passion.
Onur spent a great deal of time looking at how B2B villa and property rental markets work across the globe and through this and his extensive commercial experience identified the need to consolidate and facilitate key elements of the process and create a streamlined, automated system that works equally well for the travel trade and property suppliers. As a sophisticated B2B platform, ONEE showcases the best professionally managed properties in the luxury market, connecting them with the world’s most reputable and qualified agents.
The ONEE Platform has been designed for optimum inclusivity, engagement and personalisation. It has been developed by an experienced team who use it on a day to day basis and work continually on its development and growth. Committed to their personal approach, the team takes pride in getting to know each user, constantly learning about how they work best, and their key requirements and feedback, in order to evolve and adapt with our end users always at the forefront of any change.
This platform is more than just a booking portal. Not only does ONEE innovatively consolidate a global portfolio, encourage B2B communication and introduce dynamic commissioning, but it provides an unrivalled infrastructure for reservations and client management.
