Last week, I joined my friends at FlipKey to celebrate the one year anniversary of their vacation rental service. A large group of employees, business partners, family members, and friends gathered at the FlipKey headquarters in downtown Boston to celebrate their many accomplishments.
In just 12 months, FlipKey.com has developed the world’s largest collection of verified vacation rental guest reviews, including:
- Over 78K properties in the U.S., Canada, Caribbean, Europe and
- Over 60K guest reviews - the largest number in the industry
- Over 100K visitors/month
- Named Top Vacation Rental Website by Travel + Leisure
- Became the exclusive vacation rental source on TripAdvisor.com, providing access to verified vacation rentals to TripAdvisor Media Group’s 24MM monthly visitors
Congratulations! That's quite an accomplishment.
While the economic forecast continues to be gloomy, more second home owners than ever before are renting their properties to vacation goers, and more families unwilling to give up their hard-earned vacation time are seeking out vacation rentals as a more cost effective way to get away.
