Q: What does HomeAway offer that other vacation rental sites don’t?
A: HomeAway is the market leader in the vacation rental industry. For owners, we offer an effective marketing channel for advertising their vacation rental property as well as numerous tools, including ReservationManager™ and Property Damage Protection, to make it easier to manage their vacation rental business. We also provide an online Community that features helpful resources from HomeAway and that gives property owners and managers a place to congregate and share tips and ideas. For travelers, we offer the largest selection of vacation rental homes around the world. There is a vacation rental for everyone – from budget to luxury, city to rural, mountains to beaches. Travelers can browse the sites for free and contact the owner directly to reserve a property.

HomeAway also offers safeguards, such as guest reviews and products including the Carefree Rental Guarantee™ and Europ Assistance, which give travelers additional assurance about booking a vacation rental home.
