What is HomeAway?

HomeAway.com is a vacation rental listing platform that was launched in June 2006 with headquarters currently based in Austin, Texas. HomeAway is proudly the world leader when it comes to vacation rentals, with its sites boasting more than 1.2 million paid vacation rental listings across 190 countries. At the end of 2015, HomeAway brands were acquired by the Expedia group to the tune of $3.9 billion. One of its biggest competitors at present is Airbnb.

On HomeAway, vacation rental owners/managers list a huge selection of vacation properties and provide travelers with plenty of reasons to choose this type of accommodation over traditional hotel stays. Advertised benefits include more space (homes are bigger than hotel rooms), more room to relax (living areas included in the deal) and additional privacy. Plus, they have the added advantage of generally being a more economical option for people versus hotels.

HomeAway also facilitates the advertising of properties and management of online bookings for vacation rental owners and property managers.
