Comparing Vacation Rentals Sites : 

Start on our home page, where you will find a table comparing basic information on many of the more popular vacation rentals sites. Information provided includes the basic annual cost to list your vacation rental, whether or not the vacation rental site offers a FREE trial (and if so, for how long),  the approximate number of vacation rental properties listed on the site, Google's PageRank for the vacation rental site and, in some cases, a link to a detailed review of the vacation rental site.

We also have a number of regional pages, which provide similar information to our home page for vacation rentals sites that focus on a particular geography. Hence, if your vacation rental property is in the US, you should check out the US Vacation Rentals Sites page. We currently provide pages for US Vacation Rentals Sites, French Vacation Rentals Sites, Spanish Vacation Rentals sites and European Vacation Rentals Sites, all of which can be accessed from any page using the navigation table on  the left hand side of each page.

From the US Vacation Rentals Sites page, you can also access pages that provide comparison information on vacation rentals sites that specialize in particular regions of the US ( e.g. California Vacation Home Rentals or Florida Vacation Home Rentals.)

The basic information in these tables should at least give you enough information to determine whether or not you should add that particular site to your short list for consideration. However, before deciding to list your property on a particular vacation rentals site, you will want to do more research. This can be done by visiting each vacation rentals site ( easy to do from our comparison tables by clicking the link to the site, which opens a new window in your browser) or by studying our vacation rentals site reviews.

Vacation Rental Site Reviews

We provide detailed reviews of many of the more popular vacation rentals sites. These can be accessed either by clicking the link from  any of the comparison tables, or from our Vacation Rentals Site Reviews page. Our reviews page also provides the current Alexa traffic ranking for each vacation rental site we have reviewed. This is a very useful indication of the relative number of visitors to each vacation rental site : the lower the Alexa traffic ranking, the greater the number of visitors that a site attracts. This is a very important factor in assessing how likelihood of a vacation rentals site generating bookings for you. ( Please see our article on Comparing Traffic on Vacation Rentals Sites for more details )

 Our reviews provide lots of detailed information on each vacation rentals site. At the top of each page, you will find a chart of the Alexa Traffic Ranking for the past 12 months. This allows you to see how the popularity of the vacation rentals site has varied over the last year. In the body of the review you will find information on the key features, both from a vacation rental owner's point of view, as well as from the perspective of a potential renter. This highlights any unique or distinguishing features that this vacation rentals site offers.
