HomeToGo is a metasearch engine that aggregates results. In other words, it's a search engine that gathers online information about the best vacation rentals from vacation rental websites and makes them available on one website. Think of it as the Kayak of vacation rentals.

By using HomeToGo, you'll be able to find the best vacation home deals easily and quickly. Need a bed and breakfast in Tulsa, Oklahoma? HomeToGo will search rental websites to find the best vacation homes. And you'll see and compare prices.

How Does HomeToGo Work

To use HomeToGo, all you must do is go to HomeToGo.com and type in your destination and check-in and check-out dates, as well as the number of occupants. It will immediately bring up vacation rentals from various vacation rental websites. So, you'll be able to compare multiple vacation homes and prices with one click.

It will also pull up a map of the area you want to visit. It lets you zoom in on the vacation rentals in surrounding areas. This way, you can get an idea of where the vacation rentals are located in proximity to other amenities or parts of town you want to visit.

There are filters at the top of the page to help you narrow down the search. For example, you can filter by price, ratings, accommodation types, pets and amenities.

Once you look at all the available offers from the various rental websites, you can choose the best prices with the most popular rental amenities. And if you're waiting to check the seven-day weather forecast for your destination, you can usually book at the last minute.

Booking Vacation Rentals

A lot of the vacation rentals can be booked on the HomeToGo site directly. But HomeToGo partners usually also need to confirm vacation home bookings. Although it depends on the partner, confirmation can typically take anywhere from minutes to two days.

But if you want to speed up the process, go to the filters and select "instant booking" on the accommodations types. This will bring up vacation rentals that you can immediately book.

Unfortunately, you can't put vacation rentals on hold. If you find one you like, you should book it right away.
