In 2016, HomeAway let a few lucky travelers spend the night in the world's most iconic landmark for the first time in history. With its #EiffelTowerAllYours global contest, HomeAway built an apartment inside the Eiffel Tower and gave families from four countries the chance to sleep in the Eiffel Tower, while allowing thousands of people from around the globe to visit the exclusive HomeAway Eiffel Tower Apartment virtually and in person.
It's official: kids are increasingly speaking up and having a say on where their families go on vacation. In partnership with independent market research firm YouGov, HomeAway surveyed more than 2,800 kids and parents in the U.S. and Europe and found that when it comes to family vacation planning, children have significant decision-making power and a strong point of view on where to go, what to do and who to bring.

Launched in January 2016, HomeAway’s “It’s Your Vacation, Why Share It?” campaign directed by comedy duo Tim & Eric and voiced by actor Nick Offerman highlights why enjoying whole vacation homes with loved ones is better than shared spaces with strangers.
