MISSOURI, USA — Family vacations sure look different than they did a generation ago. Melanie Fish from Vrbo takes a look at that evolution and shows us how we can make those same kinds of memories, with a modern twist.
Vrbo is turning 25 years old! That is 25 years of connecting families with whole, private vacation homes where they can get away and reconnect. Vrbo started with a family who wanted to rent out their Colorado condo when they weren’t using it. They put ads in the back of magazines with a 1-800 number to book vacation rentals by owner. That turned into a basic website that now hosts millions of homes all over the world.
What hasn’t changed is that families can find cabins, homes, and condos all in one place. What has changed is the technology and the customer support.
Right now, you can post a throwback photo from a vacation with the hashtag #VrboTurns25 on Facebook or Instagram for a chance to win a stay in a mountain tree house or a jumbo jet in the jungle. Book your trip now at Vrbo.com.
