Experience more demand with One Key™ — our travel rewards programme

This comprehensive travel rewards programme is the first of its kind for holiday rentals. One Key unifies Expedia, and Vrbo into one simple and easy-to-use programme. It allows travellers to earn and use rewards with all three brands and across different eligible trip elements such as hotels, holiday rentals, flights, car hire and more. Added flexibility for travellers means increased demand for you.

One Key can help you attract incremental demand from travellers who spend more and book more often, compared to non-members.***


The programme is building loyalty with hundreds of millions of members around the world, which means more demand for your holiday rental property.

In addition to the incremental demand, One Key was built to benefit your business:

  • Positively impact your bottom line with Expedia Group-funded OneKeyCash™, our new rewards currency. Members can earn OneKeyCash any way they travel—and they could use it on eligible trips with you.*
  • Reach the guests you want to attract. Our programme assesses member eligibility annually (as opposed to qualifying for life), so you know you’re always targeting our most frequent travellers.

*OneKeyCash is not redeemable for cash and can only be used on Expedia, and Vrbo. OneKeyCash redemption is only available to properties using USD currency and those not integrated with property management software.

Frequently asked questions

Sign up

To list your property with Vrbo, visit and follow the instructions—signing up is free, fast and easy.


You will need the following information to sign up:

  • Property address
  • Number of bedrooms/bathrooms
  • Contact details for ongoing correspondence


Set up your listing

Now it’s time to describe your property. We’ll prompt you for the details travellers want and the amenities you offer. The information you enter will save automatically, so it’s easy to come back if you don’t have all the answers.


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Property type
  • Listing headline and description
  • Accommodates (number of people)
  • Details about rooms, layout, bed size, etc.
  • A list of available amenities—from Wi-Fi to swimming pool
  • Rates by season and length of stay
  • Pictures of rooms, common spaces and amenities
  • A list of fees, deposits and policies
  • The dates you’re available to welcome guests

That’s it! Soon, your property will be live and available to millions of travellers researching trips in our marketplace. When you receive a booking, you’ll be able to message the guest, providing and requesting information to help you anticipate needs and streamline check-in.

There is no up-front cost associated with listing your property on Vrbo. When you receive bookings, you will pay a fee per booking.

Booking fees consist of a 3% payment processing fee and a 5% commission fee.

Our easy-to-use owner dashboard will be the primary location for managing your reservations, updating rates and keeping your listing up to date.


If you are a professional property manager with multiple holiday rentals, you may want to use a connectivity provider to manage your day-to-day operations and listings on Vrbo. Professional property managers using software can log in to the owner dashboard to get access to advanced tools such as MarketMaker and Boost, but they use third-party connectivity software to collect and process payments, manage inventory and respond to guests.

Holiday rental connectivity providers offer seamless solutions to manage your business operations efficiently at scale—so you can save time, improve accuracy and grow bookings.


You don’t need to work with a connectivity software provider to list your property and get bookings on Vrbo. However, if you have more than five properties, using a connectivity software provider will help you manage your properties more easily and effectively.


See the list of the connectivity providers integrated with Vrbo and learn more about our Connectivity Partner Programme here.


If you are a professional property manager using software and you want to connect with Vrbo, please contact us via our on-boarding form.

We answer common questions and provide deeper instructions for using our technology on the Vrbo Help page. You can contact our support teams directly through this page as well.
