Hotels.com launches commissionable vacation rental properties

Hotels.com says its new VacationSpot.com is the first Web site allowing consumers to book instantly thousands of vacation rental properties that include condominiums, suites, villas and vacation homes.

Said Dan Proctor, vice president of vacation rentals at VacationSpot.com:

“We live in bigger houses with more beds and bathrooms than ever before, so why should vacationers sacrifice space, privacy and comfort while on vacation?”

The company is also offering agents 5% commissions.

Mr Proctor says VacationSpot eliminates guesswork from bookings by supplying detailed descriptions, pictures, ratings and low price guarantees.

He said vacation rentals are a fast-growing business that represent $30 billion a year in revenues.
