Top Booking Platforms Where You Want Your Vacation Rental To Be Listed On | FeWo Marketing Buchungsplattformen
- Booking.com: Most visited travel-related website (enhances your online visibility), that attracts a lot of instant bookings. Currently it’s not the most well-known booking platform for short-term rentals. High commission for hosts.
- Airbnb: Probably the most popular booking platform. Hosts are allowed to screen booking demands. It’s rare to have bad surprises as hosts and guests can leave reviews. Airbnb provides its own insurance to hosts. It’s rather difficult to stand out from the crowd (many properties, strong competition).
- HomeAway: Has dominated the vacation rental market for years. It’s part of Expedia. HomeAway combines numerous websites (e.g. VRBO, VacationRentals.com) and will promote your vacation rental everywhere at once. The platform reaches about 70 million potential guests per year. Commission can be high.
- TripAdvisor: Known for its precise reviews (credibility). Your vacation rental will also be listed on Flip Key (platform dedicated to short term rental). Low commission fee. Although TripAdvisor is well known for its travel reviews (e.g. restaurants), potential guest might not immediately think of the platform when searching for a vacation rental.
