Why Professionally Managed?

VacationRoost differs from the “rent by owner” category of web sites in three key ways:

  1. VacationRoost only represents professionally managed vacation rentals, providing the consumer with a more consistent and reliable vacation experience.
  2. VacationRoost offers valuable services and support options like travel planning assistance, credit card booking and group travel services that are not available in the listing service model.
  3. VacationRoost operates on a pay for performance model. There are no costs to sign up and no listing fees.

Supplier-Friendly Distribution

Your partnership with VacationRoost is designed with one thing in mind: to generate increased bookings for your properties.

What is supplier-friendly distribution?

  • We don't undercut your price. We market your properties at rack rate.
  • Our Market Managers work directly with you to load specials in real time.
  • We only sell what you haven't sold. We check availability by call and request, extranet (www.getvrlinked.com) or one of the following direct-connection software programs;
    • SynXis (Sabre)
    • Instant Software – ISI Link
    • Inntopia
    • Barefoot
  • Risk-free distribution. There is no cost to sign up, and you only pay when we deliver a booking.
  • We pay you in advance of the guest’s stay, not after.

The Perfect Partnership

We provide customer acquisition. You provide vacation fulfillment.
