Press Release



Miami, FL, January 20, 2009—Though vacation rental apartments and villas are even more appealing than usual in this economic downturn, some budget-conscious travelers are still afraid to commit to the unknown. Yes, a rental apartment may be less expensive than a hotel, and yes, it may have more space, and yes, it may have a kitchen but what if something goes wrong with the booking?, the leading online vacation rental directory, has banished such fears with their new "Worry Free" Lodging Guarantee. While vacation rental owners and managers are usually honest and friendly people to do business with, surprises can occur and things may not go as planned. With Rentalo's new "Worry Free" Lodging Guarantee, however, travelers no longer have to worry. The guarantee is free and provides up to $5,000 of payment protection, so clients can book with full confidence.

In order to be eligible, travelers must register their reservation before paying the booking fee for the vacation rental by either credit card or PayPal. If the vacation rental property doesn't exist, or if the renter is wrongfully denied access to the property, Rentalo will refund the reservation payment up to $5,000.

"Rentalo is among the few vacation rental directories and hotel reservation sites offering such a guarantee," says president Alfredo Purrinos. Its inventory of some 200,000 properties in the U.S., Caribbean, Mexico, Europe, Canada and around the world includes hotels, inns, lodges and bed and breakfasts in addition to vacation rental villas, condos and apartments.
