    Selling Hotel Ad's on Client's Home Page

    I wouldn't worry about the hotel ad. If I'm on looking for a vacation rental, I'm unlikely to change my mind about the vacation rental simply because an ad pops up about a nearby hotel. I'm not on looking for a hotel; I'm looking for a vacation rental. The hotel ad is unlikely to change that predisposition.

    • You must be an employee-think about what you just said.... reverse your logic. Why would a hotel in the area pay Homeaway to put a banner on my homepage? Duh... to capture the renter sales. I and other renters that use Homeaway I have taked to beleive that our homepages have been compromised. Like going to a Ford and a Honda banner add comes across the top.

      Also- I am having a ton of issues with VRBO... my inquirey emails are no longer coming to my email account and my listing has dropped off the site today. I called to log in the issue and they customer service recording says it will be "at least 2 hours" before they will get to me in the que- then drops my call. Not good...

      Frustrating... been a VRBO and Homeaway customer for 2.5 years and now thinking about going to TripAdvisor.
