|Q:||How do the sites work?|
The HomeAway sites connect homeowners/ property managers with the millions of travelers who prefer vacation rentals over hotels. The sites are free to use for travelers while homeowners pay an annual subscription fee to advertise their property. Homeowners are responsible for updating their property listings, which include a detailed property description, photos, pricing and availability information. When travelers find a home that best fits their needs and budget, they contact the home owner/manager directly via the phone number or the contact form on the listing to reserve the property.
