I`m sorry to hear you`re going through this, and thank you for sharing that extra language to complete the lease! I don`t know how many vacation rentals you`ve booked, but I`m talking about a dozen years of experience, although at the other end as an owner who sees the operation over the years. Rent through a local vacation rental or through any other company other than HomeAway, VRBO or Expedia. Don`t let your vacation be ruined!!! Everyone saw it coming. When a new global national website creates a vacation page and gets traction, it is purchased. All owners of holiday homes must go back to the basics like the old VRBO and go local. The local branding of a website is what VRBO was founded on. I launched a local website 30 days ago www.LakeAnnaRentalProperties.com for an area of 200 rentals and that`s what we`re trying to do locall branding. The second hurdle in today`s market can be seen in Google. ERMO, etc. Always appearing from the 1st and 2nd side, we are constantly fighting a constant battle. So, for safety and security, why not make your vacation rental reservation the old-fashioned way and it`s through an established and reputable broker. In holiday areas, brokers not only sell houses, but also manage holiday rentals. Brokers are members of local associations and chambers, etc.
and must consider their reputation when conducting their business properly. Renting through a local vacation rental doesn`t offer you any protection – let alone VRBO. If the owner cancels with you, then you are the one on the hook to find a replacement – no one will do it for you. .
