AUSTIN, Texas, September 4, 2012 — Austin-based HomeAway, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWAY) has organized a directory of vacation homes available for rent, many at reduced rates or free of charge, to those in need of housing whose homes were damaged by the storm. HomeAway® customers with properties located in East Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and the Florida panhandle on U.S. vacation rental sites HomeAway.com®, VRBO.com℠ and VacationRentals.com℠ have volunteered to offer their rentals to evacuees.
Fully furnished homes can be rented for short- and long-term stays. Individuals should contact the owners directly; more information is available on the site.
