The Good

  • Many accommodation options
  • Blog
  • Mobile app

Rentalo is one of the world's largest online vacation rental companies providing online travelers with access to a broad inventory of vacation homes, villa rentals, and hotels/motels. To date, more than five million travelers have successfully booked vacation homes, hotel rooms, bed and breakfasts, and other unique accommodations all through Rentalo. Their inventory of short term accommodations include: vacation houses, cabins, vacation condos, villas, holiday apartments, and standard as well as boutique hotels. Accommodations can be booked for family vacation or business trip purposes.

Travelers can find various and unique lodging accommodations. Typically, vacation rental providers only list homes and other forms of owned properties on their sites, whereas Rentalo has found a way to incorporate other lodging options. These include:

  • World vacation rentals - homes found throughout the world, typically fully-furnished
  • World hotels - partnerships with top brands and chains provide additional options
  • World bed and breakfasts - for a more cozy type feel with hotel service, these options may appeal to some travelers

The Rentalo blog allows travelers to gain a unique insight into the travel industry as a whole as well as specific information regarding the destination they are traveling to. These articles include tips and advice for prospective travelers to ease worries or doubts. There is also a special offers section where travelers can take advantage of deals and discounts on hundreds of vacation rental options throughout the world.

Additionally, Rentalo has built out their own mobile app where users can download their service onto their iPhone, Blackberry, or Android devices. This user friendly app allows users to search and even book accommodations all across the globe.

The Bad

  • Limited properties
  • Additional fees
  • Issues with product

While Rentalo is an "international" provider for vacation rentals, the actual number of properties in any given city/country is rather scarce. Depending on where a traveler goes, there could be as little as one or two properties available on the dates selected and in the desired region. These limitations may keep prospective travelers from using the service, and instead, using a larger platform. Other disadvantages of using Rentalo include:

  • Charging an additional service fee
  • Limited site features/tools
  • Unknown number of rentals

Rentalo is still a bit of a developing product. When logging onto the site, many will notice it utilizes an out-of-date interface that can create some confusion when trying to search for a rental. It is difficult to navigate the page and the search options are not vetted nearly as well as other providers.

The Bottom Line

Rentalo is a world-wide platform that allows users to find various accommodations in some of the largest cities on the planet. That being said, there are some serious limitations and restrictions when using Rentalo. All of these factors should be considered prior to making any reservations. Those that decide to move forward and use the Rentalo service can expect the following from the platform:

  1. Access to unique travel accommodations
  2. Helpful tips and advice
  3. Free mobile app
  4. Service fee charged
  5. Cluttered site
