HomeAway // Showtime Partner
HomeAway, a Vrbo brand and part of Expedia Group, is a global community of homeowners and holidaymakers.
Back in 1995, the company introduced a new way for people to travel together, pairing homeowners with families and friends looking for places to stay. Now, HomeAway is a global expert in holiday rentals and offers its customers more than 2 million online bookable listings.
The company’s mission is to connect holidaymakers to the people and places they love, giving them the space they need to drop the distractions of everyday life and simply be together.
Within the Vrbo network, HomeAway has rentals in every shape and size, near or far from home, with any amenity holidaymakers might need. The wide range of holiday properties provides the perfect matching holiday rental for all holidaymaker’s needs; from cottages to castles, from cabins to treehouses.
1.3 million of HomeAway’s 2 million online bookable listings are now instantly bookable with no wait for confirmation. That makes it easy to find and book the perfect holiday rental for any getaway, offering twice the space for half the cost of a hotel room, on average.
HomeAway features like Trip Boards, Virtual assistant or Virtual Tours improve the way people travel together, making it easier and more fun. In fact, 82 percent of users love the experience so much they plan to stay in a HomeAway again.
