Press Release




MIAMI, FL – October 22, 2007 – Rentalo, the leading vacation rental web site, has come up with still another way to make it easier to find a vacation rental online. With a new animated banner on its home page, introduces a video feature that showcases its various properties—and it’s the first in the vacation rental industry to do so. Now, in addition to reading information about and looking at pictures of a rental villa or apartment, travelers will be able to take a virtual tour through and around a property by means of a video.

“These videos distinguish our properties from others in a location by giving travelers more information,” says Rentalo president, Alfredo Purriños. “If a picture is worth a thousand words, as the saying goes, a video is worth a thousand pictures. We expect these ‘mini-commercials’ to greatly increase our owners’ bookings.”

The videos, three or four minutes long, show the outside of the property, the living room/social area, dining room, bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen, as well as amenities such as a patio, swimming pool, dock, garden, barbecue grill, hot tub, game room or laundry room. Those with fabulous views display vistas of ocean, lake or mountains. And many show local activities such as boating, fishing, tennis and shopping.

Rentalo’s huge inventory of some 200,000 properties in 15,000 destinations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe and around the world includes many kinds of lodging. Visitors to the web site will find hotels, inns, lodges and bed and breakfasts as well as villas, apartments and condos in cities, beach resorts and ski resorts. In addition, the Rentalo web site features a Special Offers box that gives travelers the possibility of renting a house or apartment in a popular vacation destination with a short-term discount of as much as 80%.
