FlipKey is one of Airbnb’s biggest competitors and an excellent choice if you’re looking for a vacation rental. The site has more than 480,000 accomodations in Europe, from 400-year old Tudor houses in England to chic villas in Spain, comfortable apartments in Germany, cozy houses in France, and more. Since FlipKey is owned by TripAdvisor, you can expect that all of the accommodation reviews are legitimate and checked. Likewise, FlipKey staff must verify a property owner before they can list their vacation rental on the website.
A nifty feature on FlipKey’s website is that you can see an accomodation’s price per week (similar to AirBnb), which is perfect for travelers who plan to stay in a city for a longer period of time.
