Booking.com strengthens its vacation rentals portfolio with Villas.com
Whether travelling with family, a group of friends or booking accommodation for a special occasion like a wedding, Villas.com, part of Booking.com – the world’s largest accommodation provider – has your vacation rentals solved.
Launched in May 2014, Villas.com is dedicated to helping travellers find, book and enjoy over 200,000 self-catering, vacation rental properties in close to 250,000 destinations worldwide. Self-catering is hugely important to British holidaymakers and Villas.com has unique holiday rentals covering everything from chalets, cottages, apartments and gites to aparthotels, villas and condos.
With new search tools and clear customer ratings, Villas.com makes it easy for travellers to explore, find and book the right property in the perfect spot – we know that people looking for self-catering accommodation are often less focussed on a particular city or town and are open to looking at larger areas or regions. Villas.com’s search function is more exploratory and helps bookers discover and identify the perfect destination.
Travellers can use Villas.com to search for cottages with pools, villas with sea views, city bolt-holes, rural idylls with enough bedrooms for everyone, or homes that welcome the whole family … including the dog. The website also features useful travel information about the regions in which each holiday rental is located – so travellers can learn more about potential destinations to make the best choice, whether traveling solo, with friends or the family.
On Villas.com, all properties have guaranteed availability, meaning bookers can see directly on the website which dates are available and receive instant confirmation, immediately knowing that they have secured their property. Villas.com eliminates the hassle of the back-and-forth email exchanges typical of vacation rental booking and additional customer booking fees are never required.
 Villas.com has over 90,000 pet friendly properties across the world
