TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals Launches The Peace Of Mind Guarantee
Worry-Free Payments for Travelers with the $10,000 Peace of Mind Guarantee
Travelers can now pay securely through TripAdvisor for a growing number of vacation rental properties, while another new feature, the Rental Inbox, keeps track of property inquiries, communication with owners/managers and status of payments so travelers don't have to.
"We're thrilled to announce these new features, which make the process of finding, booking and paying for a vacation rental property even easier," commented Dermot Halpin, president, TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals. "We know security is important to travelers and that's why we've launched the Peace of Mind Guarantee – it allows our users to focus on their travels and leave the details to us."
The Peace of Mind Guarantee
The systems behind The Peace of Mind Guarantee and online-bookable vacation rental properties are powered, provided and managed by FlipKey, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TripAdvisor. For more information, see here.
The Rental Inbox
The Peace of Mind Guarantee, online-bookable vacation rental properties and the Rental Inbox are currently only available on TripAdvisor.com, but will soon be available on other TripAdvisor sites around the world.
