ALTERNATIVES TO AIRBNB FOR VACATION RENTALS

If you’re planning an end-of-summer trip to one of the world’s best beaches, you’re probably looking for some killer digs to boot. Though you’d be hard-pressed to find someone these days who hasn’t used hospitality marketplace Airbnb for vacation rentals, there are lots of reasons people avoid using the site.

Whether you’re looking for a treehouse in Asheville, NC., or a California home with an infinity pool, these Airbnb alternatives have hundreds of thousands of listings for every vacation style, budget and occasion.

Get inspired for your next getaway with these 10 alternatives to Airbnb:

1HomeAway

 

HomeAway has listings for more than 2 million homes in more than 190 countries. Their offerings will fit pretty much any destination, occasion or budget. Similar to Airbnb, once you create a free profile, you can favorite vacation rentals and easily share them with friends and family, track message with owners, and manage all of your booking. Once you find a place you like, you can either book and pay, or ask questions. Check out HomeAway.

2VRBO

VRBO stands for Vacation Rental By Owner, and is part of the HomeAway family. VRBO does have a smaller selection than both HomeAway and Airbnb — more than 1 million homes in over 190 countries — but it offers a different experience. Only vacation homes are listed on the site, which means it’s offers unhosted experiences that are ideal for travelers who want a longer stay. Check out VRBO.
