The site will walk you through a simple, step by step process, resulting in your rental being listed on our site immediately. If this does not fully answer your question please feel free to email us
Can I put my webpage/link on my listing?
At this point we are not sure how we are going to handle direct links to owners web sites. It would be impossible to evaluate our services if renters did not contact you through our service. It is currently under evaluation, however a place for the link is asked during the listing process. Please use it in the event we do post them. We currently do not display links or email addresses on any listings. Why? If this does not fully answer your question please feel free to email us.
Will you list my rental for me?
Unfortunately we cannot. For us to do this we would have to choose a user name and password for you and also know every detail about your rental. In order to list a rental you have to personally register and personally list your rental online through our website. If this does not fully answer your question please feel free to email us.

Is there a referral program?

Is there a direct URL for my listings or do I have to navigate there every time?
Yes, there is a direct link to each property you list. We have taken a different and better approach than most vacation rental sites. Most sites create static pages for their users. Then, when they change their site, they never update the page layout, so you are stuck with the old format. At Vacation Rentals .com everything is dynamic. We are constantly working to make our site better by including more information and making our pages easier to view. Every listing on Vacation Rentals .com is immediately updated whenever we change our layout. Any new features we add are instantly available to all registered users of our site. No one is left behind. You are more than welcome to access your listings directly by your listing id number. To easily find the id of each or your listings, go to "Home Owners Login" and select "Manage my account", first typing your username into the box provided. If you forget your username or password, you may obtain it by entering your email address into the box "Send my username and password to me via email" and clicking the button.
The URL for your listing will be
make sure to put your id number in place of YourIdNumber in the above URL.
For example, if one of your properties is listing id #920, the URL to your property would be:
Your id number will never change. And you do not need to navigate to get there. Try putting it in the address box of your browser to see that listing. Feel free to use the URL any way you wish. If this does not fully answer your question please feel free to email us.
Usernames and Password?
If you forget your username or password, you may obtain it by selecting the "Home Owners Login" link on the top of our home page and entering your email address into the box above "Send my username and password to me via email" and clicking the button. Your information will then be mailed to your email address, assuming you have previously registered with us, and the email address you enter is the same one you registered with. If this does not fully answer your question please feel free to email us.
The costs depend on the number of listings you have. To see our price list login and click on make payment. If this does not fully answer your question please feel free to email us.
My trial listing was disabled - Why?
Our trial listing period is designed to allow owners to evaluate our services for three months. We have guidelines set up for our listings that is intended to protect our owners and visitors. We often attempt to change listings that break these guidelines, but sometimes they are so far outside the guidelines we have to disable them. WE NEVER DISABLE PAID LISTINGS. Owners of paid listings are asked to try to adhere to the guidelines as best as possible. A disabled trial listing can be reactivated by simply making a payment on that listing. Payments are made by loging in and clicking on Make Payment. If you make a payment on a disabled listing, keep in mind you lose no trial time - the payment is applied to your existing expiration date so you do not lose the free trial time. If this does not fully answer your question please feel free to email us.

Our online payment system is simple and easy to use. To make a payment a user must login to their account and click on Make A Payment, which is located just above users listings located on the main login screen. Our online payment system allows a user to select the listings they wish to pay for and the amount of time they wish to pay for. Once complete a method of payment is then chosen. Choosing a method of payment creates an invoice with a unique invoice number in which a payment can then be made. Our payment system is built to accept checks, money orders through conventional mail and credit cards through paypal.com. Visa and Mastercard must be processed through paypal.com. They are the only organization we are aware of that allow us to process your payments immediately. Paypal.com is somewhat of a pain to use as they have a very high security system setup. We CANNOT accept credit cards directly, it is simply not possible. Paypal.com must be used for all credit card payments. If you would rather NOT use paypal or have trouble please simply use a check - login and create a new invoice and click on pay by check. If your payment will be late do not worry there is a 30 day grace period for all listings. If you do decide to use paypal, you need to have a paypal account before you attempt to pay us. Vist their site at www.paypal.com to register. Also note that your Vacation Rentals .com username and password may not be the same as your paypal username and password (unless you set them up that way). Users can login at anytime and make a payment. All payments increase time to the existing expiration date of the listing or the date the payment was received, which ever is LATER. A user never pays for time they never received, nor do they ever lose FREE trial time. If this does not fully answer your question please feel free to email us.

Bounced Emails (that come back undelivered)
Renters: If this message is returned to you undeliverable, please forward a copy of the message to email@example.com so we can assist you in contacting the owner.
Owners If a message is returned to you undelivered, we cannot provide you with the correct address to contact the person who sent the inquiry. Form based inquiries must ask the sender to enter an email address. There is no way to verify the validity of this address before sending the inquiry. It is up to the sender to ensure the email address provided exists and it typed in correctly. About 1 in 10,000 inquiries are undeliverable due to spelling errors in the email address. Once in a while it is possible to guess the address by checking for common misspellings in the address (ex. Yahoo.con). VacationRentals.com cannot locate the correct address for undeliverable email address provided by prospective renters. If this does not fully answer your question please feel free to email us.
