The decision to rent out your property as a holiday rental is a big one, but it doesn’t have to be hard work.
Here's a preview of the rental process
Why should I list my property on HomeAway®?
Listing on HomeAway makes it easy to earn rental income. As one of the world leaders in holiday rentals, we can offer you exposure to millions of travellers each month. Our international network includes 50 sites around the world, including three of the top holiday rental sites in the United States, as well as France, Brazil, Australia, Germany, UK, Canada, Mexico, Spain, Italy, and more. We offer several ways to list, including a pay-per-booking option.
Can I control who rents my home?
Yes, you’re always in control of who stays in your property as every inquiry and booking request comes to you. With online booking, you have 24 hours to speak with your potential guests and make sure they’re a good fit for your property.
What type of properties can I advertise?
At HomeAway, we believe in “The whole house. The whole family. A whole holiday.” As part of our commitment to that, we only rent whole properties. But it certainly doesn’t have to be a house! Acceptable rental properties include houses, apartments, and villas, as well as barns, boats, bungalows, cabins, castles, chalets, chateaus, cottages, estates, mansions, yachts, and yurts, and other structures travellers may want to rent for their whole holiday.
Once my listing is live, how is my property's sort placement determined?
All listings will be sorted using our “best match” system, which applies an algorithm to all listings based on the traveller’s search criteria (e.g., travel dates, location) and ultimately displays those listings most likely to result in a successful booking. The #1 way to be successful in best match is to enable online booking for all listings and to increase the number of onsite bookings you make.
