Book a Great Vacation with Help from One of These Rental Apps – That Are Not Airbnb

Itching to take a vacation? If you’re like many other Americans, you probably can’t wait to take a trip to anywhere other than your apartment, now that the pandemic seems to be largely under control. While you could book a hotel, you might agree that booking a bed and breakfast or a private room or residence is preferable to a hotel room. That’s why apps like Airbnb are so popular – they provide guests with an extra-personal experience!

While Airbnb is undoubtedly the most famous app of its kind, there are many other booking apps that give you the sought-after experience that Airbnbs provide. Check out these reputable alternatives to Airbnb that will help you plan an awesome vacation or weekend getaway.


VRBO – or, Vacation Rentals By Owner – is another popular rental app. Like Airbnb, you can find both budget-friendly and more luxurious rentals using VRBO. However, one thing that sets this app apart is that every listing is for an entire residence – they do not allow owners to list individual rooms. So, if you prefer to have the whole place to yourself, VRBO will definitely appeal to you.

Want to truly disconnect from your on-the-go lifestyle? Check out Getaway, a rental service that helps you do just that. Getaway operates cabins near many large cities, including Dallas, that house only the basics: hot showers, comfy beds with fresh linens, and stocked kitchens. Plus, none of the cabins have Wi-Fi, which makes them perfect for disconnecting completely.
