RICHMOND, VA, April 08, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Virginia Vacation Rentals (www.VAvacationrentals.com) is an independently owned and operated vacation rental listing site that was created by Bunnie Riedel, President of Riedel Communications, Inc.
"The online vacation rental industry made some detrimental changes in 2017, that adversely affect renters and home owners alike," said Riedel. "As a vacation rental homeowner, I couldn't live with their changes which included charging our renters as much as 15% just to book and then trying to force me into online booking which would have cost me up to 10% even though I was paying a subscription fee."
The Big 3 online rental sites which are operated worldwide have moved from just being listing sites that put vacationers and homeowners together, to controlling the entire transaction and penalizing both renters and homeowners when they don't comply.
"Even if a renter doesn't book through them, if the homeowner enters that information into their calendars, the Big Guys will go after the renter or homeowner for the Booking Fee," said Riedel. "To the point where they will charge the homeowner's credit card a booking fee for the time booked."
Virginia Vacation Rentals (www.VAvacationrentals.com) was created to provide both renters and homeowners open communication so each party knows exactly what they are getting. Travelers can feel confident that they are renting from trusted owners and owners can know who is renting their home.
"We have some beautiful homes throughout Virginia, from the Shenandoah to the Blue Ridge to Virginia Beach and the Eastern Shore," said Riedel. "Think about where you want to go, then come to our website and find a great vacation rental."
Riedel Communications, Inc. was started in 2005 as a marketing and strategic planning consulting business. Its clients include nonprofits, local, state and federal government clients and retail businesses.
