FlipKey

FlipKey is a community driven travel site that helps consumers find trusted vacation rental homes throughout the world, by providing real reviews of verified vacation rental properties.

FlipKey organizes the reputation of vacation rental properties throughout the world, by verifying that homes are represented by legitimate managers/owners and then collecting detailed reviews from real guests.

FlipKey employs the industry’s only closed review system that limits reviews to confirmed past guests. FlipKey’s Reputation Management tools then allow for vacation rental managers to post public responses to both positive and negative reviews to facilitate a constructive dialog concerning the quality of individual properties and services provided.

Vacationers can use FlipKey.com to evaluate over 50,000 verified vacation rental properties and then book their accommodations directly online or call/email the manager for more information.
