VRBO has responded to homeowner complaints that new policies have hindered bookings; the company will move from tiered listings to a flat fee.

The new rules should keep most property owners in the fold. Starting July 11, they eliminate[d] multi-level plans and also eliminate[d] charging owners for ‘featured’ bookings, using an algorithm instead to show various properties to searchers.”

The company will implement a new booking fee for renters to remain competitive with companies like Airbnb.
