An annual subscription allows you to list a property for a full year and pay one set price for unlimited bookings.
On July 11 2016, we removed multi-level subscriptions (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Classic) and now offer one annual subscription at a flat rate of $399 for listings that have Online Booking activated, and $549 for listings that don't offer this feature. All listings include regional and global exposure, including visibility on our 25 top international sites at no extra cost. Ensure Online Booking is enabled for your listing in order to take advantage of the lower price and to improve your listing's performance.
Listing placement in search results is important because it can help convert to bookings—the higher, or better, your listing appears in search results then the more likely it will be seen by travelers and potentially booked. We’ve developed a best match system that applies an algorithm to all listings based on a traveler’s search criteria (e.g., travel dates, location) and ultimately displays those listings that are most likely to result in a successful booking.
The #1 way to be successful in best match is to enable Online Booking for all listings and encourage travelers to book and pay through the HomeAway checkout process. Listings that offer online booking get 86% more bookings than those without it.*
*Based on 2014 bookings per listing for Classic level, payments enabled, 7 largest HomeAway brands.
|Instead of paying for annual subscription, you can choose to pay nothing upfront and a minimum of 8% on each booking.* This option is ideal for properties with short booking seasons or that are only available for special events.|
*Pay-per-booking commissions start at 8% per booking when your traveler books through the HomeAway.com, VRBO.com and VacationRentals.com websites. Bookings originating from other sites in the HomeAway network or from our expanded distribution partners may be higher. Additional international surcharge of 2% for cards issued outside of the United States may apply.
No upfront cost means you pay nothing until you get a booking, so there's no financial risk to you.
