One of the most important decisions you’ll make before you start hosting guests inside your short-term property is which listing service you’ll use. In this post, we’ll compare and contrast the biggest names in this industry to help you choose which one makes the most sense for you.

Here at Goodnight Stay, we list our owners’ properties on the following sites: WRBO, HomeAway, Airbnb, ?Booking.com?,and Flipkey. But if you have to pick the best, it’s vital to understand how the listing sites stack up. Therefore, we’ve gathered the numbers that will link you with the top vacation rental listing sites for you.

Airbnb

Owner Fees: 3 – 5% of the booking fee
Guest Fees: Ranges between 10 – 13% per booking
Monthly Traffic: 88 million visitors on average over six months

Airbnb continues to prove itself as one of the biggest forces in the travel industry. Having an average of 88 million visitors during a six month period, it is the leading pack for vacation rental listing sites that work best in short-term rentals.

VRBO & Homeaway

Owner Fee: $499 per year or 5% per booking along with a 3% credit card processing fee Guest Fee: Ranges between 10% – 11%
Combined Monthly Traffic: 14 million visitors on average over six months

Having a staggering combined average visitor count of over ?14 millionmonthly, VRBO and HomeAway are top-notch choices for owners that want traditional vacation rentals. These sites focus entirely on “whole home” rentals so they can attract travelers who do not want to share space with others.

Booking.Com

Owner Fee: 15% per booking plus 3% credit card processing fee*

Guest Fee: 0% per booking

Monthly Traffic: 458 million visitors on average over six months

Booking.comhas the honor of being the most-visited travel site in the world with ?an average of 458 million monthly visitorsover the last six months.

TripAdvisor & Flipkey

Owner Fee?: 3% per booking plus 3% credit card processing fee Guest Fee: 8%-16% per booking
Monthly Traffic: 94 million visitors on average over six months

TripAdvisor and FlipKey work on a pay-per-booking model that has an owner fee that starts at 3%. This may be a little higher than the owner fee of Airbnb, but we still think this is an economical option for owners. This may not necessarily be a top choice for many guests.
