How To Sell Your Vacation Rental Reservation That You Can't Use

What Is A Vacation Rental?

The term vacation rental is mainly used in the US to mean the rental of a furnished apartment, house or cabin. Vacation rentals are great because they have mostly everything that you would need while on vacation. They usually have kitchens so are self catering where you can cook and prepare your own foods.

What Happens When You Can't Use Your Vacation Rental?

The first thing to do when you know you can't use your vacation rental is to speak with your travel provider directly. You will want to see if the name on your booking can be changed. Most vacation rentals and hotel bookings can be changed in name. Once you know that you can change the name on your booking you know that you can sell and transfer your listing. Everyday hundreds of thousands of hotel rooms and vacation rental bookings go wasted when people cannot cancel their bookings and cannot cancel as well.

Create A Listing

Creating a listing for your vacation rental that you can't use is simple and easy with It only takes a few minutes and just requires the details of your booking. Because TransferTravel is a peer to peer platform the more information for your listing the better. We also encourage you to add a profile picture and let everyone know why you cannot use your booking any longer.

What To Do When Your Listing Sells

When your listing sells you will be connected with the buyer in a private message. There you can ask for their details so you can make the appropriate name change. Once you have done this you will need to upload the documents for the buyer and notify TransferTravel that you have done so. There is a 72 hour time limit for this. TransferTravel releases your money to you once the buyer takes their trip!
