HomeAway to Provide Vacation Rental Listings to NYTimes.com

 
AUSTIN, TX, June 30, 2009 —  HomeAway®, the world's leading online vacation rental marketplace, today announced a strategic relationship with The New York Times, which operates the No. 1 newspaper site in the United States. As a result of this agreement, the 12 million monthly visitors to NYTimes.com can now easily find and compare properties in their favorite global destinations found on HomeAway.com through NYTimes.com Real Estate (www.nytimes.com/realestate) and Great Homes and Destinations (www.greathomesanddestinations.com).

Visitors to NYTimes.com now have access to a wide selection of global vacation rental listings, complete with reviews and the protection of the free HomeAway Rental Guarantee.

“We're proud to join forces with one of the most-recognized news sources in the country,” says Brian Sharples, HomeAway chief executive officer. “With access to the millions of visitors who frequent NYTimes.com each month, the owners and managers who trust and list their property with HomeAway will benefit from the additional exposure their properties will receive.” “While several recent surveys have shown that families are putting off vacations in light of the economy and rising gas prices, there are actually many ways to cut costs – but not corners – and still stick to an affordable travel budget. For example, vacation rentals through sites like HomeAway.com allow you to rent a whole home for less than the cost of a hotel, and they come with added perks like full kitchens that allow you to dine in and save even more money.”
