VRBO by Expedia
Expedia has been dealing in property rentals for almost 2 decades, whereas some have just started entering the rental game. Although they are known for flights & hotels, they also getting a pretty good grip on the vacation rental market.
Vrbo is a vacation rental booking platform where homeowners can list their homes directly without going through a management company. Vrbo ("verb-oh") is actually an acronym that stands for "vacation rentals by owner," which is basically exactly what users expect whenever they are looking to find rentals directly from owners.
Expedia has been working on this project since 1995, other platforms may have just popularized the concept in hopes of branding themselves with the concept.
