There are generally two types of people you usually rent from - either professional property managers or directly from the property owner. The property managers typically offer dedicated on-site help, experienced local staff, and sometimes professional hospitality service. Property owners typically provide direct and personal contact, flexible dates and rates, and more options in smaller towns. These property managers and property owners list their properties with TripAdvisor companies FlipKey or Holiday Lettings or one of our trusted partners worldwide.
Look for the ‘Pay on TripAdvisor’ badge associated with certain properties for the opportunity to pay for your rental directly on TripAdvisor and be covered by our Payment Protection . For those properties, we offer payment protection on your stay if access to the property is prevented or denied upon check-in.
