Although travelers are opting to rent vacation homes as a safe way to socially distance while on the road, not every trip goes exactly according to plan.
That’s where having the backing of an established rental platform comes in handy, says James Cassidy, senior director for partner success for vacation rentals in EMEA at Expedia Group.
Speaking during PhocusWire’s Pulse: Decoding Travel Security event, Cassidy says that booking via an intermediary such as Expedia Group-owned Vrbo comes with traveler protections such as its Book With Confidence Guarantee.
Cassidy also speaks to how owners can help safeguard their properties, the importance of secure payment transaction as well as how Vrbo utilizes AI and machine learning to detect potential instances of fraud.
