HomeToGo: How a Global Leader in Vacation Rentals Accelerated Growth through Global PEO

IndustryReal Estate
Company Size350+
Founding Year2014
With Horizons since 2019 


Home2Go, a vacation home rental service, was able to use PEO to manage the complexity of the early pandemic days.

HomeToGo sets up travelers in vacation homes, cabins, beach houses, apartments, and condos all over the world. They also target the more intrepid among us: Houseboats, castles, farm stays, glamping, you name it — they’re the go-to platform for adventurous accommodation options.

HomeToGo continued to grow its business globally…

Founded in 2014 and operating in partnership with dozens of international travel apps and websites, 2019 was the year that HomeToGo decided to really light a rocket under its Asia-Pacific expansion.

They sought a flexible international hiring solution: They needed to be able to easily scale in each international location to reflect local demand. The time-consuming and expensive prospect of setting up separate legal entities in every international location did not appeal.

This is where Horizons’ global PEO solution came in. A global PEO — global Professional Employer Organization — becomes the local employer of record for an international business in any country or region it wishes to operate in.

Horizons took care of employment contracts, payroll, and employee taxes for HomeToGo in China, Japan, Australia, and South Korea, while the employees themselves worked under the day-to-day management of HomeToGo.

…and global PEO saved the day.

Summing up his experience, HomeToGo co-founder and CEO, Dr. Patrick Andrae, put it this way:

“Our industry moves fast. We need to be ready to support our customers wherever they choose to go on vacation.

By using a global PEO solution, we were able to match our global staffing needs with rapidly evolving demand. Horizons enabled us to do this quickly — and cost-effectively —without the need to set up and close local entities.”
