As an organization bringing together the leading suppliers, resources and experts that serve traveling families, we count among our members four companies facilitating vacation rental for family groups on the move.

The popularity of vacation rentals among traveling families comes as no surprise to anyone helping them meet their holiday desires. Gone are the days of more limited vacation accommodation choice. Instead, the brave new world of short-term holiday homes that look like — and sometimes even are — homes away from home is decidedly upon us, something of enormous interest and value to family groups.

The types of properties and the structures that underpin them are increasingly diverse. Most people think first of vacation rentals as private homes (or parts of homes), but these days there are also residences in timeshares and premier independent resorts, the latter promising all the space and freedom of home rentals with the advantages of hotel-like services.

Read what our vacation rental member experts have to say about the appeal of vacation rentals and how to find the right one for you and your family.
