Vacation rentals

Hello,

Just wondering what are the most reliable sites for booking vacation rentals? A lot of them require pre-payment and I'm a bit worried about doing this and turning up to find our booking doesn't exist.

Thanks

Is Vrbo generally reliable?

Though nothing is guaranteed, vrbo, flipkey, homeaway etc. are all sites used by those who post on the Hawaii forums. Stay away from Craig's list.

Does this ad seem legitimate?

Yes, looks legitimate. Particularly with the option to pay by credit card, which protects you in case of fraud.
