I'd like to know too, which vacation rentals qualify and which don't, because we usually stay at rentals, not hotels.
is there any change in this policy? Im looking to find out whether either VRBO or HomeAway qualify as travel merchants for the purposes of redeeming points.
Hi @amyvaden:I believe both HomeAway and VRBO are still categorized as a Real Estate MCC. I'll double check.
Hi all, I'm curious if there's been any update on redeeming points for Homeaway/VRBO rentals. Thank you in advance!
I just talked to a rep and they said HomeAway/VRBO - Southern Resorts will not qualify as travel. They also said they can’t manually make it work either.
Just got off the phone with a Barclays customer service rep., who said that Airbnb sometimes uses "realty group" as a merchant category code, but this seems to contradict information I just found on this board. Perhaps she was misinformed? Can Barclays confirm the Airbnb MCC in use at this time?
