As summer vacation inches closer to rearing its highlighted, shade-wearing head, you’re in full-on homework mode.
And here’s one more: This week, BookingBuddy.com unveiled a section for vacation rentals, another sign that the segment is here to stay. I know, I know. One more darn site to click through.
But this one will actually save time, allowing consumers to stack up rental fees on various websites, including VacationHomeRentals.com. See how lucky you are? Besides an ad in the Yellow Pages–remember those?–and a Rand McNally map, bet your parents were lucky to have any resources for travel planning.
The fact that BookingBuddy.com, a site with 2.7 million unique visitors as of this March (according to compete.com), now lists vacation homes alongside cruises, vacation packages and hotels just goes to show travelers what a smart, competitive and now, mainstream, business model it is.
So if you’re in the market for R&R, consider a vacation home. On the flip side, if you own one, consider listing it here for broader exposure.
It’s a win-win.
