Why I prefer Homeaway over Airbnb or Tripadvisor

You have heard of sites such as Tripadvisor and Airbnb but the accommodation service I like the most is Homeaway. I think the other two services are great but in my opinion, the ladder is the best one out there. Here is my review of it.

Selection
First, Homeaway is great because of how many properties there are to choose from. There are a lot of different types of accommodation on the site. This includes everything from single family small homes to mansions located right on the beach. I love the fact that I can choose to stay in a property that suits my budget at any given time.

What I love the most is how easy the site is to use, as all I have to do is enter where I want to travel to and the dates I want to stay from and to. Afterwards, a list of properties are returned in the results and I can sort them based on type of property, price, location type and much more.

Booking Process And Payment Process
The booking and payment process are straightforward. I initially thought it was a little weird but it’s actually not. Once you find the property you want, you send a request to book it via the ‘request to book’ link. Once that has been taken care of, the next step is to pay for the booking, which the site allows you to do via their payment portal. The payment process is secure and fast. Once completed, the next thing to do is to wait until the day you travel and head to the property.

The Actual Stay
One of the reasons I love using this particular accommodation finding service is because the places you stay at actually look like the photos. Sure, everything in a photo tends to look better in real life. However, I find that the places on the site match the descriptions and the photos perfectly. I have never had any issues with the few places I have booked off of the site.

Do I Recommend It
I highly recommend using the site because the selection available is unmatched by Airbnb, Tripadvisor and many other similar sites. This is saying a lot because those are amazing sites. I also recommend using Homeaway because I have found so many cheap but amazing places on it. If you want to stay somewhere really nice, especially a beach location such as Florida, then you’ll want to use this site.

I have never had any problems with Home-away and I plan on using them again very soon. I have used the service numerous times in the past and they are the first place I turn to when I want to book a short holiday anywhere.
