I was searching for a vacation rental on VRBO, Homeaway, and Tripadvisor. I have used all in the past, with generally good results.
Several properties that were listed as 'available' on this sites, so I sent inquiries, and got a rsponse from DirectStay, advising me they were "unavailable", and telling me to use the DirectStay site. I checked the DirectStay site, and noticed that several properties I saw listed on VRBO, Homeaway, and Tripadvisor, were listed on DirectStay priced up to 35% higher.
I will never do business with DirectStay, and I am now extremely suspicious of VRBO and TripAdvisor. Beware!!!
Product or Service Mentioned: Direct Stay Website.
