U.S. All-Purpose Rentals Marketplace Zumper Spins Out Holiday Rentals Platform

Zumper, a privately owned rental marketplace in the USA, is launching a new platform called Vacations by Zumper to spin out its holiday rentals.

The platform will feature a range of vacation rental listings, including from third parties such as Booking.com and Vrbo as well as over 28,000 homes across 750+ markets in partnership with property management partner Evolve.

The San Francisco-based company has also partnered with Rentals United, a platform that helps property managers and small landlords to synchronize their listings across multiple marketplaces.

Zumper's new platform has been created to address the gap in technological advancements and industry innovation in the vacation rental category. Zumper's short-term rental inventory has increased by over 50% since its short-term rental product was launched in August 2022, taking it to over one million listings.

Anthemos Georgiades, co-founder and CEO of Zumper, said: “Consumers have fundamentally changed the way they live and travel, but until today rental marketplaces have not reflected this in their product offerings. Consumers no longer see a strong distinction between vacation, monthly and long-term rentals.

“Lease lengths and accommodation types have become fluid as renters’ lives have become more flexible, but the marketplaces that serve them have remained siloed.

“Today, Zumper is the first player to bring it all together — nightly, monthly and annual stays, all in one place. We’ve created an ecosystem that provides a one-stop shop for every type of accommodation with Zumper’s signature simplicity."

In February 2023, Zumper unveiled its annual subscription service, FlexPass. It provides renters with access to thousands of premium, fully-furnished short-term rentals worldwide for minimum stay bookings of 30 days without hidden fees, security deposits or leases. Zumper's network of 100+ cities ranges from popular destinations to "hidden gems" worldwide.
