I've been VRBOing quite a bit lately (a penthouse off Piccadilly for 239? yes, please!).

I can't seem to find where these services have a home on FT. I don't see much in the destination forums. A couple of locked threads in TravelBuzz.

I'm not necessarily suggesting they need a new forum of their own...or that they belong on FT at all, but...

Makes me think, to some degree, of our RideShare/Uber/Lyft/etc. discussions.

I'd think many airBnB type questions end up in the destination threads or the Budget Travel forum.

Definitely some good deals out there!

This seems to be where the threads exist right now:

Given the low level of traffic that you have encountered thus far, I think the destination forum is probably the appropriate place for these threads. As I said in the Rideshare forum, I am most likely to look in the destination forum for such things rather than a dedicated forum. Why wade through posts about Amsterdam when I want accommodation in Sydney?
