Florida Rental By Owners (FLARBO) Announce Partnership with Vacation Soup Exclusively for FLARBO members

Florida Rental By Owners is excited to announce a new partnership with Vacation Soup. This partnership kicks off with an exclusive special offer solely for FLARBO paid subscribers to publish blog articles without the need for a website or stand-alone blog. This move fully supports the #BookDirect movement that both travel companies hold as pillars to their business models. It also assists owners who want to take more control and independence of their vacation rental businesses by putting owners in the driver's seat of building traffic funnels to their properties.


In celebration of the launch, we have a very limited time offer for Florida Rental By Owners (FLARBO) members who have never subscribed to Vacation Soup before - with a new member's introductory rate of $139.90 which is a 61% saving. Hurry, this offer won’t last offer ends January 31, 2019.


Florida Rental By Owners (FLARBO) and Vacation Soup are dedicated to owners looking to take back control of their vacation rental business by providing an open advertising site where owners, property managers, and travelers can connect, communicate freely, and book direct, which always gets both parties best price.


Vacation Soup is a software solution for vacation rental owners who want to promote and drive traffic to their vacation rentals via blogging about their holiday destination.

Many of our owners are not technically savvy. This gives owners who want to take more control of the booking process by avoiding the headaches and experience required to create and launch their own blog or website. As part of the #BookDirect movement, we feel that Vacation Soup is a perfect brand partner to help our owners and property managers achieve their goals.

Vacation Soup is made up of a huge network of owners who manage their own vacation rentals. They provide a unique marketing hub for owners, as well as a rich source of relevant and up-to-date information for travelers researching vacation destinations prior to booking a property.

Vacation Soup takes the work out of blogging by publishing destination-oriented content, written by the owners themselves. Each owner’s profile allows them to showcase their property listings, directing a reader to their rentals. Vacation Soup also syndicates the owner’s stories throughout the social spectrum and feeds Google and other large web browsers with these articles and answers questions that travelers are searching for. Owners already answer a ton of similar questions by their current guests so writing these tips and information down on articles for all travelers will be a snap.


Take a look at Superhost Elizabeth Spaid's recent article about her vacation rental that won the FLARBO Vacation Rental Award for Best Luxury Bayfront Vacation Rental 2018.

FLARBO Member Elizabeth Spaid Blog Article 

When a traveler starts dreaming about their next vacation, they don’t start by searching for “3 beds, 2 baths”. They ask Google for the top things to do on "Anna Maria Island" (The Soup is already listed on page one of that Google search!), “what to do when it rains in Disney” or “Dog-friendly beaches”. This is the time to get your property in front of them, weeks before they type VRBO or Airbnb into their search box.

Launched at the start of 2018, Vacation Soup exists to break the increasingly aggressive hold of the big listing sites (VRBO, Airbnb, HomeAway etc) and their ever-increasing service fees and monopolistic practices. Vacation Soup already has over 3,600 published articles (2018), and while ‘The Soup’ is a global company, Florida is by far its most popular destination.
