Hi everyone,its that time of year again,the pre planning for our annual trip to the sunshine state ,and again this year to our new favourite Anna Maria.
We have rented in Florida for over 20 yrs,and for the last 12 15 of those years we have always booked direct with the various owners on sites such as VRBO ,Flipkey,Homeaway etc, to be honest we do try to get a better price ,bearing in mind we visit in September ,and we always stay at least 14 nights ,also we usually arrive on a weekday ,and not all agents cater for that..
Anyway,this year more than ever before looking on the sites above ,yep plenty of choice of rentals ,but it seems to me that something like 90% are run by managers [rental agencies],please don't
get me wrong ,i realise that the vast majority of these companies do a very good job,but was wondering where have all the owners gone ,VRBO , vacation rental by OWNER ,well it seems to me that is now not what it actually is.
Any thought s ?
