It’s been nearly 25 years since the launch of Vrbo and since
then, particularly in the past decade, the private accommodation space has flourished
and matured, with a mix of booking platforms, property management companies and

Hurst, Turnkey Vacation Rentals CEO John Banczak and Terry Jones, an advisor to
CertiStay, founder of Travelocity and founding chairman of Kayak.
