Corporate greed is alive and well at VRBO Homeaway websites. Check out this email I got from HomeAway alleging a "violation" on their website? What was the violation? Apparently the violation is simply having my phone number on my listing so potential guests can contact me with any questions they may have.
Guests, if you want to save money on accomodations find your listing on vrbo/homeaway, but book directly with the owner. In doing so you will circumvent the bogus "service fees" that VRBO / HomeAway charge you on each reservation. It may be a little tough to find the owner's contact information, but if you can find it you will save money. One suggestion would be to click on "ask the owner a question" and 318 embed your 272 phone number 0951 into your message in a cryptic sort of way.
