We are excited to announce a new way to search VRBO vacation properties – map search! This is a more visual way for travelers to find properties in the area they want to stay.
This new feature makes it easy for travelers to find properties that meet their needs, and gives you one more way for your property to get seen. So it’s important to make sure your property’s location functionality is engaged.
Letting travelers know where your property is located is one of the simplest things you can do to improve you listing completeness and search ranking. Of course, we will never show your actual street address, so your exact location will still stay private.
Make sure your property gets seen in map search
It only takes a few seconds to turn on the location functionality for your property. From your property dashboard page, click the “Listing Info” tab. Click on the “edit listing” button on the right and select “Location” from the dropdown menu. Then scroll down to the Traveler Map & Insider Guide section:
Check the “Allow travelers to zoom” and “Display my property market” boxes and save your changes. Your property will now be included in the map search tool.
Here’s a tip… Shhhh
While you’re here, why not take a few minutes to create an Insider Guide? It adds value to your property pin and can help set your property apart by showing all the interesting places a traveler can access in the area, making your property even more appealing.
