Tripping.com Review

Tripping.com lets users search millions of available rentals all over the world. Check out the best of the top vacation rental sites from one spot. From condos to cottages and beach houses to suburban homes, tripping.com can connect you with the best site in town.

Tripping.com Pros

Tripping.com will show you the best from almost every vacation rental site. Save time searching by looking at all of the options available from over many sites. Compare listings after picking the criteria important to you – such as beds, bathrooms, location, and other amenities. Quickly see price differences for the same rental hosted by different sites.

Tripping.com Cons

Planning a trip can be stressful with so many details to sort out. Tripping.com can be a bit overwhelming because there are so many options with different websites. Jumping back and forth between different websites can get confusing with all of the different layouts and systems.

Tripping.com Bottom Line

Tripping.com is a great resource for finding a place to stay if you are the detail-oriented person who wants to sort through everything you can find. You will have better luck on another site if you just want to see a few great options as opposed to everything under the sun.

Tripping | Plan Your Next Getaway

Individuals and families in search of vacation rentals have traditionally turned to hotel and resort websites. Web sites, such as Homeaway and AirBnB, offer the affordability and convenience of private homes and vacation rental properties as options to hotels, motels, and resorts. Tripping brings them together.

What Is Tripping?

Tripping is a website allowing users to search and compare vacation rental properties across the United States and throughout the world listed on other sites, including VRBO and Homeaway and Couchsurfing. Users can compare pricing for various types of accommodations using the Tripping platform.

Individuals with properties to rent, including owners of timeshares, can list them through other vacation rental services from the Tripping platform. Tripping offers the convenience of aggregating other websites into a single search engine.

Services Provided On Tripping.com

Tripping partners with other vacation rental services to give its users access to the properties and services offered by those sites. Listing vacation rentals is done through one of the partnering websites.

Finding rental properties can be accomplished either through the partner websites or directly through Tripping. Users will find properties that can be booked on Tripping.com. Other properties, such as those listed on Homeaway, can be viewed and booked through the partnering website.

Pros And Cons Of Using Tripping

Tripping offers users one-stop shopping for vacation rental properties. It allows people to gather information about properties without having to visit a number of different websites. It also offers the advantage of letting people compare different properties available from different vacation rental services, and using the Tripping platform is free.

The site also has informative articles suggesting vacation spots around the world for people looking for ideas for their next getaway. For example, one article offers suggestions for vacation spots on lakes in New England. Another article targets snowbirds with 25 affordable, warm-weather vacation spots for people seeking an escape from wintry weather back home.

As convenient as it is to view and compare rentals from various sites in one search engine, the inability to book a desired destination through Tripping takes away some of the convenience. While it is true that some listings are available for booking through Tripping.com, those available at other sites force the user to go to those sites to complete their booking transaction.

One limitation on the ability to compare vacation rentals through the Tripping search engine is that AirBnB is not a Tripping partner. Comparing properties listed on AirBnB with properties from other vacation rental services cannot be accomplished by only going to Tripping.com.

Tripping

How It Works

Enter in where you’re going, how long you’ll be there, and how many guests are coming along. Narrow down your search using several parameters to find the perfect options. Quickly see the price differences between locations and the same location offered on different sites. Once you’ve found the place for you, Tripping.com will redirect you to the site you’ve chosen to book.

Plans & Pricing

Tripping.com is free to use, but the prices of the rentals vary wildly.

 

Member Services

As Tripping.com is a planning resource not a booking site, some users will be disappointed they can’t pick up the phone and call them directly with any questions on their website. That said, one site allowing you to be able to compare prices across many platforms is a great tool to have when planning a trip.
