Vrbo Gets a New Name, New Look

In case you didn’t know how to actually pronounce the vacation rental company’s name, they just made it so much easier.

Vrbo’s new look.

Say it with us now, “VER-boh.” That’s the new way to pronounce Vrbo, one of the originators of the vacation rental option. Chances are some of you were already saying it this way, which is why the brand decided to ultimately go with what fans loved. Along with the new “name”, the brand revamped their logo and website with new technologies–making it easier to plan out that perfect summer vacation with a rental spot instead of a typical hotel. And we’re all for making the planning portion of any trip easier (who else is in the throes of summer getaway plans right now?).

Plan out your summer vacation with the new Trip Boards feature.

The new Trip Boards section on the site makes planning a group trip SO much easier. Gone are the days of sending links back and forth to single properties (let’s face it, at least one person in the group never really looks at all of the links shared!). It was just hard to keep track of all the top places. Now you can save your favourite properties on one page (hallelujah!) and share that link so your friends or family can not only view, but also leave comments on which ones are their faves too. Take a peek at what some of the boards look like here to get your wanderlust flowing for your next trip.

Trip Boards make it easy to plan out your next trip.

So where would you jet off to for a summer vacation? Time to start planning!
