VRBO is a Top Ten Travel Web Site

Vacation rental listing web site VRBO.Com was ranked in August 2012 as number 7 in a list of the top 10 US Travel web sites for travel destinations and accommodations.  They share the top 10 spots with travel giants like Hotels.Com, Carnival Cruise Lines and Hilton Hotels On Line.

I think its safe to say that Vacation Rentals are now part of the mainstream travel industry.

Communities that seek to increase tourist traffic should take note.  Treating short term rentals like they are a problem is foolish.  Communities should work with vacation rentals the same way they work with hotels, motels and resorts to bolster local economies.
