    With over 2 million bookable vacation rentals, Vrbo connects homeowners with families and vacationers looking for something more than a hotel for their trip.
    In terms of online rental property booking, HomeAway.com is one of the largest Airbnb competitors, with over 1 million worldwide listings. It offers many of the same services as Airbnb, helping people find rental properties based on their location and travel dates, as well as several other criteria. HomeAway offers its own brand of insurance and other protections so that you can rent with confidence. HomeAway also operates several smaller vacation property renting websites, which are often aimed at certain geographical markets.

  4. List your property with the world's largest travel community.
    A popular Airbnb alternative, FlipKey.com is owned by travel giant TripAdvisor and offers over 300,000 rental listings in over 190 countries from around the world. In addition, all property owners who list their places on FlipKey have to be verified by the website’s staff, so the chance that you’ll book with someone who has dishonest intentions is very low. FlipKey also features over 5000 special booking deals daily, so you can find places to stay for even less! One drawback to FlipKey is that not every listing can be booked directly over the website; some require you to email or phone the property owner – this is due to the fact that FlipKey offers multiple ways to pay for your vacation.

  5. The Tripadvisor mobile app is available for the Android and iOS platforms. It can be used to create reviews of hotels, restaurants, and to chat with other travelers on Tripadvisor forums.
    TripAdvisor.com has always been an amazing resource for travelers, as it contains a platform where real travelers can write reviews, rate, and post images of the places they stay, meaning you get a real feel for what the place is like – before you book it. Recently, TripAdvisor has dabbled in the vacation rentals market as well, and has expanded their coverings so you can see reviews of places people rent for vacations, and you can now book right on the site!

  6. Find your next stay. Search deals on hotels, homes, and much more...
    Booking.com is one of the largest portals on the Internet for finding places to stay, bringing together over 28 million listings in over 230 countries. You can book a place with instant confirmation and no fees, and if you find a better deal on a room or property on another website, Booking.com will match it. And if you’re looking for flights, car rentals, or taxis to or from an airport, they’ll help you find it through their partner sites at Kayak.com, Rentalcars.com, and Rideways.com, respectively.

  8. 10,000+ high-end homes available to rent. The best homes. The best service. Stay in luxury serviced apartments in our favourite cities.
    OneFineStay.com is an alternative to Airbnb with a uniquely personal touch. The rental properties that you can search for and book on OneFineStay are hand-picked by the site’s staff, and you will never have to share a space; you’ll always have the place to yourself! Plus, OneFineStay offers advice direct from locals in popular tourist areas on the best local attractions, from restaurants to specialty shops, from bars and nightclubs to interesting landmarks. One thing to note about OneFineStay is that, since the properties it lists are ones that the site’s staff have personally stayed at and enjoyed, you can only book places in London, Paris, Los Angeles, and New York City, and 7 other cities. The trade-off is that you’ll be booking a quality rental property whose owner has personally earned the trust of the people who run OneFineStay.

    This product hasn't been added to SaaSHub yet
    9flats.com is a European-based Airbnb competitor. They’re relatively small (they have less than 500,000 properties), but they have a few unique features that make them attractive if you’re looking to book rental properties. First, they have multiple secure payment methods, including the anonymous currency Bitcoin. Also, all booking fees are paid by the host, not you. 9flats also offers a “Book Now, Pay Later” option, which allows you to make a small installment to confirm your booking, and then pay the remaining balance to the host when you check in; this allows you to save up some extra cash before you leave for your trip!

  10. CouchSurfing is your ticket to explore the world -- from the road or from your own home.
    Couchsurfing.com is a different kind of property rental website, in that all of its listings are free. That’s right, free. The idea behind it is to get people from all walks of life to open their homes and lives to each other in order to foster mutual respect between different cultures. Of course, that means you have to be a lot more involved in your stay than with traditional rentals. Cook your host one of your specialty dinners, take them out to dinner and/or a local event, or bring a small gift with you to show your appreciation towards them. And while you’re at it, hook up with other travelers in your area and do something fun together. Travel brings connections, and with connections come a richer life!

  11. The world's most trusted upscale home exchange. Join for free and travel to a hundred different countries. Greece, Italy, Hawaii...
    Originally conceived as a luxury “second home” swap, ThirdHome.com is now open to everyone. You can put your vacant property (like a cottage or other home-away-from-home) up for rent, and when someone books it, you gain credits that you can use towards renting the property of another ThirdHome member for free. Or, if you don’t have a second property to rent out, you can still pay a ThirdHome member to book their empty space for a while. You can even join small groups in staying at unique locations for one-of-a-kind tours of the area. Be sure to have a healthy bank balance, though, because many of these rentals and tours can get really pricey.

    Find accommodations worldwide on Wimdu ✔ Choose from over 350,000 vacation rentals starting at just $13/night ✔ Save up to 65% by booking with Wimdu today ✔
    Based in Germany, Wimdu.com is one of the biggest alternatives to Airbnb in Europe (though it’s now available in the U.S. and beyond). They have over 350,000 listings for properties in over 2000 cities and 140 countries around the globe, though they mainly focus on European destinations. Like Airbnb, they also cover your stay with free insurance policies, and only release your payment to the property manager 24 hours after you’ve checked in, so you can stay with peace of mind. In addition, they verify certain properties, and take the pictures featured on the listing themselves, so you can feel confident about any listing that is “Wimdu Verified.”
