Mancations and Special Offers (Travel Tuesday)

MancationWhether you’re starting to get ready for Valentine’s day or gearing up for a mancation,  now is the time to find a great deal on a rental. There are over 670 special offers on FlipKey this week, with deals on everything from ski passes to off-shore cruises. For those doing their research before making travel plans, here’s the week’s vacation rental news:

  • AskMen.com released a vacation rental guide this week. These men know what they’re talking about – they have great advice on everything from choosing a destination and finding deals, to contacting owners/managers and making payments.
  • A discussion has sprung up around the Internet about vacation rental reviews. We’ve put in our two cents here, and are convinced that authentic reviews are valuable tools for owners and managers. If you have thoughts, we’d love to hear them in the comments.
  • Finally, some vacation rental scams have popped up on Craigslist for homes in Southern Vermont. When making vacation rental arrangements, always try to meet in person (or at least on the phone) and steer clear of anyone who wants you to make payments via wire transfer. And remember, FlipKey authenticates all of our vacation rental listings to prevent fraud, so search for your next vacation home on a site with verified properties and authentic reviews.

Happy Travel Tuesday!
