I rent a small apartment in Italy and so far have rented either privately or quite successfully with Wimdu (which no longer exists) and Airbnb. Personally so far I have had no complaints with Airbnb which I also invariably use when travelling. However, Airbnb has come in for quite a lot of criticism lately so I was looking to diversify perhaps with Homeaway/Vrbo. So far I have not taken this any further because despite spending some time on their site I have been unable to discover what percentage of commission they charge me and my potential guests. Anyway, to get to the point, I came across this, which has quite put me off.......
