VacationsFRBO.com - Vacations For Rent By Owner
VacationsFRBO.com has been in business since June of 2005. In that time period, we have generated nearly 1,000,000
inquiries for property owners. We also offer a flat $9.95 annual listing fee, which we like to point out is "practically free".
A lot has changed in the vacation rental business over that time. We have witnessed a mass consolidation
of big name vacation rental website businesses.
There has been a steady progression
in the industry by the big business providers to increase fees not only to the vacation rental property owners, but also to the guests. Fees that range into the hundreds
of dollars per each rental transaction. There is
also change underway to eliminate pre-booking direct contact between owners and guests.
We find this to be an disturbing trend, as owners often want to
dialogue with potential guests to get a sense of who they are and to avoid surprises. Guests also may have questions they would prefer to discuss
on the phone. Just having a phone conversation can often go a long way to satisfy both parties that the other party is legitimate and not a fraud!
Our mission is to continue enabling vacation property owner-to-guest contact the old fashioned way. By calling on the phone, if either party prefers, for example.
In this day and age when the Internet is making just about everything easier to find, cheaper and more competetive (think Amazon), it is upsetting
to see the big-players in the vacation rental market heading in the opposite direction.
There needs to be viable alternatives and we aim to be just that. We can only continue to offer
our services through property owner support, however. Please consider listing your vacation rental property with us and we will do our absolute best
to make you very satisfied with that decision.
We hope you find value in the VacationsFRBO.com website - whether you are a vacation home owner or
searching for a vacation rental destination. We invite you to send us
your suggestions and comments.
Happy travels and best of luck to all!
