Malaysian travellers now have access to more than 400,000 holiday rental properties around the world, thanks to TripAdvisor's latest service, Vacation Rentals.
The new service allows single travellers or large groups to search and compare wide-ranging properties, including apartments, villas, chalets, houseboats, castles and treehouses worldwide.
"Travellers can now find pictures, reviews, descriptions and booking information on our properties, while homeowners can list their property for free and benefit from our site," said Dermot Halpin, president of TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals.
Booking a vacation rental property is simple. Through the Vacation Rentals tab on TripAdvisor, travellers can find pictures and details on hundreds of thousands of properties.
Users can filter properties by date of stay, destination, size, amenities such as private pool or pet-friendly and more.
When a suitable property is found, travellers can quickly and easily arrange payment and/or contact the owner with more questions.
In a recent survey, travellers gave high praise to vacation rentals with the majority of respondents citing their holiday rental experience as "very good" or "quite good".
