VRBO Filter Enhancements Launched Today

We have heard from many of you over the past few months about our new filters on VRBO.  Thanks for all the feedback. While the majority of comments have been quite positive, we want you to know that we’re listening and incorporating some of your suggestions for improvements, too.  Today, we are launching many of these enhancements to filters on VRBO!

First, you will see the bedrooms and sleeps filters shown independently in the search bars from the other filters, as we have found that these filters are used more often by travelers in narrowing their vacation rental search. Travelers will also see the number of properties that match their search criteria within the search bar per the screenshot below.

Secondly, we have changed the bedroom filter functionality to display exact number of bedrooms rather than 2+, 3+, etc. Travelers will also have the option to input a minimum and maximum number of bedrooms, which has been requested by an overwhelming majority of both travelers and owners

In addition, you will see that we added the ‘min‘ and ‘max’ fields to the sleep filter for travelers that don’t want to see properties outside of their specific sleep range, while allowing other travelers to see all listings that will sleep at least the minimum number of guests in their party.

The min/ max ranges for bedrooms and sleeps has also been added to the ‘more filters’ drop down. We have also added a bathroom filter within the more filters area.

We are excited about the changes and hope you are too. As always, please keep the feedback coming!
