Why would a rental show up on TA but not Flipkey?

Aren't they connected? I would expect to see the same listings on both sites but that is not the case.

Can you show us the place you are referring to? Maybe a link?

I've seen many but one is the place I am interested in renting. This is the TA listing but I don't find it on Flipkey.

Very strange. Since it's listed on TripAdvisor, why not inquire about the home and ask the owner about this anomaly? Websites occasionally have issues with location filters, etc. Or, perhaps the owner has stopped listing on FlipKey, but the change hasn't caught up on TA.

This isn't the only one just an example that I remembered. I would have thought we'd be seeing the same inventory in TA and Flipkey but that isn't the case. I was hoping someone knew why. In fact, searching flipkey for 5+ bedroom houses on the coast of Spain, I found that many of the ones I was considering didn't show up.

Holiday rental owner in Spain asked me to contact her through Flipkey but I booked through Tripadvisor and I cannot contact her - I received emails from her from Tripadvisor asking me to get in touch through Flipkey but when I click the "read more" link to access my in box, it is empty! ?? - now slightly panicking as I am due to travel on 27 Aug. I will try to call Tripadvisor in the morning but if anyone can help that would be really helpful pls thanks
