Reviews for rentals

I have thought about Tripadvisor as being all about reviews. i didn't realize you list vacation rentals by owner, but it would be a great idea, if the reviews were accessible. I am looking for a place in Paris for 4 days in September, and will probably go with HomeAway or Air BNB instead because those sites have reviews of the property/owner/customer experience. I just don't know what to make of some place with only one review, written 10 months ago, or the many places that have no reviews at all.

Your assistance with secure payment seems like a benefit, and perhaps safer and more convenient than HomeAway and AirBNB, except no reviews to hear from others how well it really worked for them in the event of not being able to stay in the room they expected, and having to make alternate plans immediately.

Reviews are available on TripAdvisor's "FlipKey" vacation rentals site, just as they are available on other rental sites. If only one old review is showing for a particular property, it is because only that one review has been submitted by a guest and verified by FlipKey. http://www.flipkey.com/

Not every guest leaves reviews. Not every owner cares enough about reviews to ask their renters to leave reviews. I'd say that a lack of reviews on a property was more "no information" than a warning not to rent.

Reviews submitted through FlipKey show up on the TripAdvisor listings. If you're not seeing any in TA, then FlipKey haven't got any either.
