How did this come about?
In 2017 the vacation rental industry changed forever.
Travellers use travel guides and the internet to research their vacation and then go to a listing site to book their accommodation.
The big listings sites like Homeaway, VRBO and Airbnb are now charging travellers a ‘service fee’ and not allowing them to contact the property owners directly.
These online travel agents started charging travellers a ‘service fee’ of between 5 and 15% of the cost of the vacation.
They also took away the ability for travellers to contact vacation rental owners directly with any questions they may have.
We think this is unfair and have decided to do things differently.
Doing things differently!
We thought, how wonderful would it be if we could not only give travellers the best research experience ever, but also let them contact local people directly!
Local people who have rental properties if you need somewhere to stay…
And we will NEVER charge traveller ‘service fees’!
Thus Vacation Soup was born in 2018 and continually aims to be one of the fastest growing and best travel resources on the net.
