When you book a place on Vacation.Rentals, you’re making arrangements to stay in someone’s home. Each host has their own style of hospitality, starting with how they like to get to know their guests.
1. Complete Your Profile
Vacation.Rentals requires that both host and traveler have verified profiles before a request is made. Our community relies on trust and one of the ways we can improve this trust is through profile validation. Complete your profile before you request a reservation with a host, so they can know a little bit about you when they confirm. Your profile should include photos and verifications, especially because some hosts require guests to have a profile photo or Verified ID in order to book.
2. Find the Right Place
To get the most accurate pricing make sure of your dates and the number of guests who will be attending is stated. Look over the reviews, the rules, and importatnt amenities for each place to see if it’s the right fit for you. If there is something that is not clear - contact the host and ask them directly.
3. Reserve It!
You’ve found the perfect place, and now it’s time to make it official. This is where the host’s preferred way of booking will determine how you’ll confirm your reservation.
Request to Book
You’ll see a button on the listing that says Request to Book. Your host has 24 hours to get back with you to either confirm or ask for more information. Learn more about submitting a reservation request.
Pre-approvals and Special Offers
Contact the host to ask questions before attempting to book. A pre-approval is an invitation to finish booking for the dates and number of guests you noted in your message. Make sure to ask the host if they have any special offers ongoing at that time and if they could be applicable to your stay.
