Have anyone used FlipKey recently? I have never used that site and wanted an idea before I booked something. Saw some posts from several years ago but nothing recent. Thanks for your help.

I've never heard of problems. Flipkey is owned by TripAdvisor, I think. Many of the listings are on VRBO and/or Homeaway as well. It is not an agency, so experiences vary depending upon the individual owners.

Do your usual homework. Ask about the unit on forums, read reviews, google the address, talk to the owner if possible, etc. The standard advice with any holiday rentals is not to wire money. Pay by check or credit card. Exception is a bank transfer from your account to the owner's account. But that happens more often for international rentals.
