As you are aware by now, the Expedia group unified its platform for vacation rentals in Europe on the VRBO portal. VRBO was already one of the major booking portal in the Americas, but with this merge, Expedia made a smart move to be able to compete with Airbnb, Booking.com and co.
Give these events, we recently announced, that you can now also synchronise prices and minimum to VRBO (and the whole group as HomeAway, FeWo-direkt, Abritel, etc.) directly from the Smoobu Channel Manager.
All things considered, we wanted to take this opportunity to give you a few helpful resources, which can help you setup your vacation rental more efficiently on VRBO.
