Each regional vacation rental website in our group is owned and operated by people who live within the region or own a vacation rental in the region, and who are familiar with the area. The common thread of these regional vacation rental websites is that they all use the same platform for consistency..

Do the regional vacation rental websites charge a service or booking fee to renters who book through them?

No. The regional vacation rental websites do not charge any fees to renters who book through their sites. One of the main purposes of developing regional vacation rental websites is to provide travelers an alternative to book without paying services fees, such as those charged by HomeAway, VRBO and AirBNB, which can add hundreds of dollars to your vacation costs. We would much rather you use that money to enjoy yourself while on vacation.
