& Accommodation hub
Nobody starts a dream vacation searching for property, they start with a dream.
They research what to do and where to go before they look for where to stay. Vacation Soup delivers up-to-the-minute ideas and local secrets for discerning travellers provided by owners. Conveniently we’re also a comprehensive listing site.
Destination Marketing Drives Traffic
Great marketing is story driven.
If owners only talk about their properties they don't produce enough content to rank for any terms not owned by the big listing sites. Vacation Soup changes that.
Sharing your personal recommendations will increase your traffic.
how we are different
Lowest Price On The Web
The biggest weakness of the large listing sites is greed. They have inflated the price of vacations across the board. Because Vacation Soup offers true Owners Direct Pricing we can guarantee the lowest prices on the web. This will produce huge marketing buzz.
Marketing Properties Directly
Up to 60% of owner's fees are spent directly on marketing that features their property. Auto syndicating across the major social platforms along with Email marketing and the more traditional pay-per-click channels travellers are targeted as they start researching their vacation.
No Transaction Fees. Ever.
Membership is paid by quarterly or annually and we will never charge per booking. We refund up to 50% for content and we also offer member-get-member benefits. The minimum net owner cost is $29.99 per month.
One of the main shortcomings for owners is that they are fragmented across the web so we have built in an owner community. It's like Facebook but for VR owners. You can read the latest VR news, chat, share ideas, form your own local groups and discuss topics in forums.
Simple to use
You manage everything through your own WordPress website. If you don't have one, you can in 3 hours for free. Our plugin shares your website's posts, property, availability and owners details with VacationSoup and social networks, and provides a guided post writer so you can easily create a week's targeted posts in one batch.
Video learning centre
We have over 400 in depth training videos for our members. Subjects covered include everything from creating a free WordPress website, branding, social marketing, bulk and speed blogging, SEO for beginners to housekeeping.
Join The Crusade
With 1,000s of owners we can end transaction fee pricing.
