Vacation rentals have become increasingly attractive to travellers looking to improve the quality of their stay. Millennials and boomers are increasingly vacationing with extended families and wanting authentic boutique accommodations and off the beaten track unspoiled experiences.
“Vacation rental booking is a rapidly growing industry that’s set to take on hotels in coming years, “says Leavetown’s CEO and Founder, Mike Liverton. According to research from PhoCusWright, U.S. Vacation Rentals 2009- 2014: A Market Reinvented, online rental bookings have doubled from 12% in 2007 to 24% in 2012. This represents a tremendous opportunity for Leavetown as it meets the changing demands of the evolving tourism market.
“Renting a vacation property allows you to enjoy a real home away from home while on vacation,” adds Liverton. “You can live like a local with the extra space, privacy and amenities, not to mention enjoying exceptional value for your money.” However, we know that needs vary across all parties. That is why it’s important to research whether a vacation rental or a hotel is better for you depending on your requirements.
