“We’re losing our legacy. Many who feel they’re being pushed into exiting our industry have been in this business for a decade or more.” – Jay William, CEO of BreakAwayVR

The official launch of Break Away Vacation Rentals, http://www.BreakAwayVR.com, gives control back to struggling vacation rental businesses, and helps uninformed travelers save on inflated booking fees.
Thousands of disgruntled property managers, owners, and travelers have voiced their frustrations with popular vacation rental websites and their newest fee driven policies.
The complaints from owners range from bloated booking fees charged to travelers, unfriendly corporate policies enforced on owners, and most recently, the blocking of critical communication between owners and travelers. The new change makes it so that travelers and owners can no longer communicate freely with each other, ensuring that the booking fee is no way bypassed.
The booking fee offers no additional value to travelers and costs a family an upwards of $400 dollars or more per booking. The “service fee” has come at a very high cost for small businesses too.

The changes have had a crippling effect on the lives of thousands of owners and managers across the globe. Many have said they’re considering closing their doors because it’s become difficult to adapt to artificial market challenges caused by these popular vacation rental listing sites.
“I had planned to “retire” with my business, but I now have half my properties for sale,” said a rental owner who wanted to remain anonymous out of concern of how speaking out could have repercussions for her business.
