Ease of use for Renters

Medium

Possibly because VRBO is one of the older vacation rentals sites, the user interface lacks some of the glossy features of some of the other sites. Search facilities on VRBO are mostly by geography, without the "advanced search" feature found on most other "vacation rentals by owner" sites. However, the "text search" on VRBO allows you to enter a number of keywords to find suitable "vacation rentals by owner" properties.

Renters visiting VRBO can see how often each property has been viewed using a page counter which is useful for determining the popularity of  particular properties.

Cost

 $299/year

VRBO.com is not the cheapest option, but as one of the market leaders in the vacation rentals market, VRBO is reasonably priced for the services offered. VRBO also no longer charge for updating photos.
