VRBO — our listing on their website
For the past 10 years we have had our property listed on VRBO same listing, same picture and same info.. Without any problems.. this year we were contact by VRBO that our listing was expiring. Did we want to use their online reservation service or continue to advertise and handle our own reservations. We chose the latter as we are in a remote area and need to have contact with guests.We received a bill for $549.00 but when we received our visa the charge was $756.17 . the VRBO /Homeaway did not mention the fees were in US Funds. However because we had success with this company in the past we decided to pay the amount and use the service Mistake!!!We found that VRBO/HOMEAWAY were reading our emails from our guests wanting to reserve accommodation, and censoring them!!!..now it is impossible to have any contact with this company.. any info that is sent to you is in a from letter, there is no telephone contact .
We then were told our listing had been cancelled as it did not meet their compliance? What compliance.. we had an agreement that we would be handling our own correspondence and that we would taking our own reservations!, After numerous form letters nothing was resolved we tried to change the original listing to one unit only to find that we were unable to edit the rates nor the calendar. Plus we could not find the listing anywhere in our area. Since VRBO has become part of the HomeAway organization and has turned into nothing more that a booking agency, , save your money and frustrations go with AIRBNB !!
