NEWS AND NOTES
VacayRx Announces Crowdfunding Campaign
After spending several years working on the property management side of the vacation rental industry, our Founder saw a growing need to offer a differentiated platform to the industry. While large companies like VRBO/HomeAway, and Airbnb had dominated the market, they had also made sweeping policy changes that were not always in favor of the consumer. Key information was removed or redacted from communications, ambiguous pricing was implemented, and key touch-points were removed from the transaction, making it nearly impossible to speak with another user pre-booking. On Vacayrx we always allow for pre-booking communications between parties to allow for better question asking/answering, guest screening, expectation setting, and to give property owners and managers the ability to offer a higher level of service to their guests. We do all this at transparent price points which allow for significant cost savings over other platforms in the industry. Come check us out and see why we are delivering "Vacation Rentals the Right Way".
