We are pleased to announce a new connectivity partnership with Vrbo !
Who is Vrbo?
Launched in 1995, Vrbo’s mission has been to find every family the space they need to relax, reconnect, and enjoy precious time away together.
Vrbo brings its expertise and reputation for excellence to the short-term rentals market with this booking channel for all travelers.
What does Vrbo offer?
Vrbo’s unique branding of catering to families is what sets that apart.
- They believe in family connection– “Our focus is on the importance of connection and the joy that celebrating meaningful moments together brings. That’s the magic we’re trying to capture. That’s why we’re here.”
- They have a place for everyone- “We started pairing homeowners with families looking for places to stay in 1995, and Vacation Rentals By Owner (Vrbo) was born. Since then, we’ve grown into a trusted global vacation brand with a unique selection of 2+ million whole homes all over the world. In other words, there’s room for everyone. Vrbo takes diversity and inclusion seriously because we believe that family is everything. No matter how it takes shape.”
- They want families to travel better together- “That means new features that make getting away together simpler for everyone. It means filtering for preferences and highlighting destinations within driving distance. It means streamlined group planning tools. It means stays for every budget. And it means excellent customer service and flexible cancellation policies if plans change.”
