Vacation Rental Travelers Relax More, Finds Wyndham Vacation Rentals® Study

Parsippany, N.J. (July 1, 2015) – Vacation rental travelers know how to kick back. Cost savings, peace of mind and flexibility are among the reasons why 92 percent find vacation rental stays more relaxing than other lodging accommodations. These are among the findings of a recent study of more than 11,000 vacation rental travelers conducted by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, the world’s largest professional manager of vacation rental properties and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN).

 

The study shows the kitchen is a major stress reliever, with 94 percent of vacation rental travelers agreeing that having one on vacation reduced their stress level.  Of those travelers, 73 percent attributed the lower stress to being able to save money. On average, vacation rental travelers report having saved $742 over the course of a week by preparing some meals in their rental. They tend to prepare an average of 12 meals during a week-long stay, including breakfast five times, lunch four times and dinner three times.

 

“With July marking National Vacation Rental Month, there’s no better time to look at why vacation rental travelers choose this way to vacation,” said Mary Lynn Clark, president, Wyndham Vacation Rentals North America. “While you might think you’d never cook on vacation, it can be a tremendous source of savings. That added value along with the extra space and flexibility a vacation rental offers can make for a more relaxed vacation experience.”

Other findings show the kitchen saves vacation rental travelers aggravation.

In addition to travel savings, vacation rental travelers cited a number of reasons why having a kitchen on vacation helps them relax. Of the 94% who agreed it alleviates stress, here’s why:

·         Dining out can be stressful. 60% felt not having to get ready to go out to eat allowed for a more enjoyable experience. Similarly, 36% liked being able to avoid the wait times of restaurants and the stress of eating out.

·         Diets and allergies are a concern. 59% appreciated having a kitchen because they were better able to cater to everyone’s diets and allergy restrictions and stick to preparing healthier meals.

 

Vacation companions matter too.

Vacation rental travelers prioritize when it comes to choosing who to bring on vacation. When weighing companions from parents and friends to in-laws and extended family, priorities tend to vary based on gender and age:

 

·         Women are less likely to bring their in-laws. Perhaps stacking the odds in their favor, women are more likely to want to take their own parents, extended family and friends on vacation before adding their in-laws to the list.

·         Men are more likely to bring help. More appreciative of extra hands, men are more likely to want to bring the housekeeper and the babysitter on vacation.

·         Older travelers want to bring their friends. Surprisingly, the older vacation rental travelers get, the more likely they are to want to take friends on vacation. Of those ages 25-34, 26% were most likely to want friends with them on vacation, compared to 29% of those ages 35-54, and 36% of those ages 55+.

Travelers Are Hitting the Road This Summer, Finds Wyndham Vacation Rentals® Study

 

Parsippany, N.J. (June 15, 2015) – Vacation rental travelers are in it for the long haul. The nearly 90 percent who plan on hitting the road this summer will spend an average of 12.3 hours driving to their vacation destination. These are among the findings of a recent study* of more than 11,000 vacation rental travelers conducted by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, the world’s largest professional manager of vacation rental properties and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN).

 

As might be expected, the study also found that men tend to take the wheel on road trips. However, the actual disparity between genders is steep. Nearly four in five men (79%) say they drive on a road trip compared to just one in five women (23%). Perhaps more surprising, women are the more aggressive road trippers. They’re more likely to describe their driving style as “Pedal to the Metal” (49% vs. 41%) while men are more willing to take the “Long & Leisurely” route (29% vs. 21%).   

 

“A travel tradition that may have once been seen as a means to an end actually holds much more reverence among vacation rental travelers today,” said Mary Lynn Clark, president, Wyndham Vacation Rentals North America. “They’re a unique group who often travel with larger parties and appreciate spending as much time as they can with each other, whether it’s on the road or vacationing together under one roof.”

Other findings show that food plays an important part in the road trip.

Vacation rental travelers can be very particular when it comes to snacks for the ride, even making unique and specific choices like egg and lobster sandwiches or summer sausage with squirt cheese. When it comes to choosing between food groups, here’s where they stand:

·         They try to snack healthy in the car. When picking their favorite road trip snack or beverage, only 4% of vacation rental travelers cite fast food as their top choice. 26% prefer healthier options like nuts, seeds and trail mix.

·         Where you live might affect your choice. Vacationrental travelers from the Pittsburgh, PA metro area have the biggest sweet tooth, while those near Cleveland-Akron, Ohio are more likely to crave something salty. Tampa-St. Pete, Florida and Denver, Colorado tie for the most health-minded vacation rental travelers, while those from Los Angeles, CA are most likely to be found in the drive-thru.

 

Part of the fun is getting there.

Surprisingly, most vacation rental travelers don’t really get annoyed by things like talking too much or playing “I-Spy.” However, when they start to get agitated, here’s what sets them off:

 

·         Bad driving is their biggest complaint. Nearly half (49%) of vacation rental travelers agree that bad driving is far and away the most annoying road trip occurrence. 22% rank backseat driving their second biggest annoyance.

·         Men and women clash on car-ride fun. Men are less appreciative of aspiring singers with 35% finding singing or humming moderately to extremely annoying compared to just 25% of women. Women are more likely to roll their eyes at steering wheel drumming with 26% finding it very to extremely annoying (compared to 18% of men).  

Start planning your own road and vacation rental experience in celebration of upcoming National Vacation Rental Month in July. Visit WyndhamVacationRentals.com for deals in popular destinations like Delaware’s Beaches, Northwest Florida, Gulf Coast Alabama and the Tennessee Smoky Mountains.

 

*This study was conducted through an online survey of Wyndham Vacation Rentals’ database from April 6, 2015 – May 3, 2015.

Founded in 2001, Vacation Palm Springs has established itself as a leader in the California professionally-managed vacation rental market, attracting guests from throughout the state and nearby metro areas including Los Angeles and San Diego. The company maintains a diverse selection of privately-owned luxury homes and condos in popular desert area resort cities, including Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage and La Quinta. Vacation Palm Springs offers options for a variety of travelers from those seeking a celebrity-like experience to families traveling with pets to large groups looking for a multi-bedroom home where they can vacation together under one roof.

 

"Wyndham Vacation Rentals is the perfect partner," said Rob Kincaid, co-founder of Vacation Palm Springs. “Its scale creates additional momentum in the vacation home experience for our valued guests, homeowner clients and our local associates who will continue to be based in Palm Springs.”

Expert Advice Busts Common Myths Surrounding Vacation Rental Homes

PARSIPPANY, N.J. (July 18, 2016) – Wyndham Vacation Rentals, the world’s largest professional manager of vacation rental properties and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN), helps travelers celebrate National Vacation Rental Month by setting the record straight on this popular way to travel.

Eighty-nine percent of travelers who have never rented before would consider doing so, according to a Kelton study+. However, fears and popular misconceptions about vacation rentals ultimately prevent many from trying.

“With so many different types of vacation rentals available, travelers can have trouble navigating their options,” said Mary Lynn Clark, president, Wyndham Vacation Rentals North America. “Feeling misinformed or overwhelmed can dissuade those travelers from trying something new. To help, we wanted to confront a few of the most popular myths that tend to surround vacation rentals.” 

Wyndham Vacation Rentals dispels the top five myths:

  • Myth #1: More space = a higher price tag. Many travelers assume vacation rentals are more expensive than traditional lodging options. Think again! Break down the per night, per person pricing while factoring in the space amenities and you can get a great value. Rental homes can even prove more cost-effective by allowing travelers to leverage convenient amenities, such as kitchens to save money on meals or washers/dryers to cut down on baggage fees by packing less. 
  • Myth #2: I need to have a large group. Vacation rental homes come in all shapes and sizes, from studio units and condos in resort-style communities to larger, private homes with four or more bedrooms. Solo travelers, couples and small families often enjoy rental homes for the convenience and can find the right sized home for their needs.
  • Myth #3: I have to stay for at least a week. Not true! Many vacation rental homes offer flexibility when it comes to length of stay. Travelers can often find rentals for weekend stays, especially during off-peak travel periods.
  • Myth #4: You have to book far in advance. False. There is no set timeframe in which you must book a rental home before your trip. While booking further in advance can give you a greater selection to choose from, there are often great last-minute deals in many popular vacation destinations for those who can’t plan as far ahead.
  • Myth #5: If I need help during my stay, I’m on my own. Quite the contrary; though, it does depend on how you book your rental home. If you book through a professional manager, there is typically someone available 24/7 to assist you with any issues you might encounter. If you book directly through a homeowner, you’ll need to ask them how available they’ll be during your stay.

+Study was conducted by Kelton Global from December 14, 2015 – January 5, 2016 among the following audiences: 1,000 nationally representative Americans 25+ who have ever traveled outside the home overnight, including 447 Americans who have experience being a rental guest in someone else’s vacation home and 561 Americans who own two or more homes and have ever rented out one of their homes to travelers (this group includes U.S. vacation rental homeowners who have a rental agreement with Wyndham Vacation Rentals and those who do not).

Don’t Trust Your Vacation to a Stranger: Survey Reveals What Travelers Need to Know Before Booking a Summer Vacation Rental

Parsippany, N.J. (March 29, 2016) – The arrival of spring kicks summer vacation planning  into high gear – for many that means finding a vacation rental. Before booking that dream vacation home, travelers need to think twice about who they rent from as it makes a big difference when it comes to safety, service and peace-of-mind according to a new survey from Wyndham Vacation Rentals.

Nearly 90 percent of do-it-yourself hosts secretly dread doing the things needed to deliver a great vacation experience – dealing with guests, handling inspections and cleaning the house. As a result, nearly 70 percent of travelers who have tried both would prefer to rent from a professional management company as opposed to an owner during their next stay.

Stranger Danger: Rental Guests Book with Caution

The private space and home-like amenities of vacation rentals have strong appeal - 89 percent of those who never tried a rental would consider doing so - but tales of vacation rentals gone bad when booking directly with a homeowner weigh on renters’ minds.  

  • Unmet expectations. 62 percent of all vacationers worry about not being able to get problems solved quickly and nearly half (46 percent) are not confident that they’ll get what they anticipate when renting directly from an owner.
  • Unsafe rentals. Nearly half (45 percent) of all vacationers worry about the safety of an owner-managed property.
  • Guests want to vacation with confidence. Nearly half (49 percent) of all vacationers look for a name they can trust when booking accommodations.

“The survey underscores that travelers want to know their vacation is in the hands of someone they can trust,” said Gail Mandel, CEO, Wyndham Vacation Rentals. “Being a homeowner doesn’t necessarily make you qualified nor interested in running a bed and breakfast. The reality is most homeowners don’t have the time to adequately meet guest expectations when it comes to safety, cleanliness and assistance, and as a result they find the tasks daunting.”

Who You Rent From Matters

Nearly seven in 10 guests (68 percent) who have stayed in a professionally managed vacation rental and one managed by the owner prefer the managed option.

  • No Complaints. Virtually all guests (99 percent) who stayed in a professionally managed home had a positive experience during their last visit. 
  • At Your Service. 95 percent of vacationers can think of at least one reason why they would choose to rent from a management company over the owner. Top reasons included the company resolving issues quickly and providing a 24/7 contact.
  • Peace of Mind. Nearly half of all vacationers would choose a professionally managed rental over owner-managed because it provides greater peace of mind.
  • Safety. Guests who have experience with both options are two and half times as likely to feel extremely confident in the safety of a home rented through a management company as opposed to one rented directly from the owner. 

While peer-to-peer listings may dominate the headlines, professionally managed properties account for nearly half of all transactions annually in the U.S. In fact, many of today’s most popular vacation rental listings are peppered with professionally managed properties.

Unlike direct-from-homeowner rentals, vacation rental managers like Wyndham Vacation Rentals oversee the process from start to finish ensuring a great guest experience. Vacation rental managers have established standards for quality, service and security for their properties whereas peer-to-peer rentals leave the standards up to each individual homeowner.

Mandel adds, “Guests should know they do not have to go it alone. But if they do, they should keep in mind important tips, like renting from a reputable source, watching for signs of fraud and only using secure payment methods. If they have any hesitations at all, they should consider a professional manager who will keep their concerns top of mind.”

This study was conducted by Kelton Global from December 14, 2015 – January 5, 2016 among the following audiences: 1,000 nationally representative Americans 25+ who have ever traveled outside the home overnight, including 447 Americans who have experience being a rental guest in someone else’s vacation home and 561 Americans who own two or more homes and have ever rented out one of their homes to travelers (this group includes U.S. vacation rental homeowners who have a rental agreement with Wyndham Vacation Rentals and those who do not).

More Non-Skiers Heading to the Mountains, Finds Wyndham Vacation Rentals® Study

Parsippany, N.J. (January 25, 2016) – More non-skiers are visiting the slopes this ski season, and they’ve got opinions on where to stay. This year, nearly one in three non-skiers said they join their skiing and snowboarding friends and family on ski vacations, up from one in five last year. Eighty-two percent prefer to stay in a vacation rental when tagging along. These are among the findings of a recent study* of more than 9,000 skiers, snowboarders and non-skiers conducted by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, the world’s largest professional manager of vacation rental properties and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN).

The study shows each party tends to agree when it comes to lodging for a ski vacation, with 84 percent of both skiers and snowboarders also preferring vacation rentals. This preference has strengthened from last year when 77 percent of skiers and snowboarders reported a preference for vacation rentals.

“Vacation rentals can provide a lot of great benefits for all types of travelers,” said Mary Lynn Clark, president, Wyndham Vacation Rentals North America. “While a non-skier might appreciate being able to relax by the fire or read a book on the couch, skiers can benefit from fueling up after runs in the kitchen or having extra space for gear.”

Other findings show the reasons vacation rentals reign in ski country.

From the convenience of a kitchen to value, space and privacy, see where each type of traveler’s priorities lay when booking a vacation rental property for a ski vacation: 

  • Skiers and snowboarders crave value. When rating the significance of vacation rental features, skiers and snowboarders place the most importance on value, perhaps to help offset the price of lift tickets or gear rentals. The kitchen remains the second most significant feature from last year’s results, possibly pointing to the cost-saving benefits it allows.
  • The larger the group, the more important a kitchen becomes. The appeal of having a kitchen grows as group size gets larger. 75% of groups of two or more find the kitchen very to extremely important, while that number reaches 88% for groups of six or more.
  • Non-skiers want their space and privacy. 75% of non-skiers find privacy very to extremely important, compared to 66% of skiers and snowboarders. When it comes to space, 73% of non-skiers find it very to extremely important, compared to 64% of skiers and snowboarders.

 For more information and vacation rental deals in top-ranked North American ski destinations, visit WyndhamVacationRentals.com.

*This study was conducted from October 2 – 15, 2015 through an online survey of skiers, snowboarders and non-skiers through Wyndham Vacation Rentals’ database. For the full results, please contact Leann McDonough at leann.mcdonough@wyn.com.

Wyndham Vacation Rentals, the world’s largest professional manager of vacation rental properties and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN), today announced that it offers rental accommodations in seven of the top 10 Western ski destinations as reported in SKI Magazine’s recently released rankings.

Guests can choose from studio to three-bedroom condominiums at Trailhead Lodge or Torian Plum and enjoy amenities like a pool, fitness center, and ski and snowboard rental delivery. Early bookers can secure great lodging rates plus up to 20%* off lift tickets.

Beaver Creek, Colorado: Beaver Creek stood out in readers’ minds for its exceptional service and impeccable grooming, making for a truly enjoyable mountain experience. It also scored high ranks for its various dining options.
