When searching and booking a short-term rental for an upcoming vacation, you expect it to be anything but easy. There's a new feature by the newly rebranded Vrbo which is looking to ease the process.
Decisions about vacation rentals are usually collaborative. It's you and your significant other, kids, grandparents, maybe even a travel agent. And in the past, that meant emailing or texting a lot of property descriptions to a group that, if it's like my family, never agrees about much of anything.
And then Vrbo released its new Trip Boards in March, which allowed vacation rental guests to tag, share and vote on their favorite properties.
The market for vacation rentals is growing at a breathtaking rate of 26% a year and is now worth an estimated $168 billion. Put differently, there are a lot of folks in the position of trying to determine which rental is the best one for them. Vrbo's Trip Boards show that in such a competitive industry, it's not just the technology you provide your owners and managers that gives you an edge. Sometimes, helping consumers can help you, too.
