VRBO vs. Airbnb: Which Platform is Better for Travel Deals in 2022?

Over the past few years, travelers have been moving away from staying in a hotel room. Instead, many travelers seek a more “staying at home” feel while away from their homes.


In 2008 Airbnb was born with the name Air Bed and Breakfast. At its core, Airbnb’s goal is to connect homeowners to potential renters.

VRBO is focused on renting out different types of vacation homes, putting the homeowner in direct contact with potential renters.


When looking at the different types of accommodations each site offers, Airbnb clearly has the advantage over VRBO.

Accommodation Types

VRBO mainly works with renting out stand-alone homes only. On the other hand, Airbnb will have the traditional stand-alone homes, plus shared spaces (like renting out a single room in a multi-room home).

Rental Selection

Airbnb boasts a robust 5.6 million rentals available worldwide, being available in over 190 counties. While also available in 190 plus counties, VRBO’s exact rentals available are not public knowledge.

VRBO filtering makes it easier to find exactly what you are looking for. Searching by user review, pet’s allowed, and other standard options are better on VRBO.
