    Book unique places to stay and things to do.
    Some people, for instance, take issue with Airbnb’s policies or lack of transparency, and some hosts have struggled to get reimbursement for guest-related costs, which Airbnb is supposed to help protect them from. And if you’re a guest, you may just not be able to find an Airbnb rental that suits your liking in whatever city or area you’re traveling to.

  2. Vacatia is the resort marketplace for vacationing families. Instantly book resort residences with the space of a home + services of a hotel, perfect for family travel.
    This site is specifically a resort marketplace. So it gives you access to a variety of luxury destinations in some of the most well-known family vacation hotspots. It specializes in resort stays for families and friends and seeks to one-up the hotel market where you can just stay in adjoining rooms. Vacatia works with over 600 professionally managed resorts and timeshare residences, but it won’t lead you to a hotel or a private home.

  3. Kayak for vacation homes & short-term rentals
    Tripping isn’t actually its own rental service for either travelers or hosts.

Or if you’re looking for the most economical trip possible, Tripping can help you compare all the options to find a trip that works best for you.

    Like Tripping, Wimdu is a great place to search for vacation rentals, but it isn’t a hosting platform in and of itself. It compiles over 35,000 places to stay around the world. When you click on an option with Wimdu, it redirects you to the actual site where the property can be rented. For instance, you might get redirected to or HomeAway, two other popular services for hotels and home rentals.

  5. HomeToGo is a search engine for vacation rentals worldwide.
    Here’s another great search engine to try when you’re looking for an interesting or affordable place to stay for your vacation. Again, HometoGo aggregates listings from several other sites, including,, VRBO, and HomeAway. When you choose the listing you want to book, you’ll actually book it through one of those partners.

  6. With HomeAway you can respond to inquiries, manage the property calendar, send quotes and payment...
    For travelers, if you’re looking specifically for whole-home rentals, HomeAway is a great place to start. But for hosts who, like me, are looking to rent out only part of their homes, HomeAway is not a good fit. That said, if you have a whole home you want to rent, or if you want to rent your primary residence part of the time, HomeAway could be an excellent option. However, be sure you check out HomeAway’s fees, as they’re known to have higher fees than some other platforms.

    With over 2 million bookable vacation rentals, Vrbo connects homeowners with families and vacationers looking for something more than a hotel for their trip.
    Vacation Rental By Owner is actually part of the HomeAway family. Essentially, HomeAway and VRBO are the same platform, and they share listings. HomeAway acquired VRBO, and since then combined the platforms so they look and feel the same.

  8. List your property with the world's largest travel community.
    FlipKey is powered by TripAdvisor and lets owners list their homes online, then charges a 3% commission from guest payments. The interesting thing about FlipKey is that its results get listed in TripAdvisor results, so people who may not normally shop for rentals on a home sharing site could see your listing. This exposure could increase your bookings if you’re a host.

  9. Find and book homestay accommodation worldwide. Our hosts offer short and long term stays for students and independent travellers. Don't just visit, Live It!
    If you’re looking for a budget-friendly home sharing situation, check out Homestay. They boast an average per-night price of $31, so they’re a great option for those who are traveling light and low-budget. Like Airbnb, Homestay specializes in home sharing situations, so you’ll be renting a room in someone’s home. Unlike Airbnb, they seem to have truly stuck to that original idea, so you’ll find mostly actual sharing situations with a few whole-home rentals available.
