Both are widely used vacation rental sites for homeowners who want to rent their homes and make a few bucks. And for holiday or vacation-seekers, who’d rather rent a home in a preferred location, than spend money on a hotel room or inn.
Homeway, based in Austin, Texas, says it’s the “leading marketplace of vacation rentals, representing 700,000 paid vacation rental home listings” in 168 countries.
VRBO doesn’t seem to have an “About Us” page, which is disappointing, but has a lot of testimonials and an interesting Community Section where users can share concerns and information, like the couple that thought it was fishy for a renter to ask for a social security number.
