VRBO and Homeaway

Hi Everyone,

 

I recently booked on Homeaway and I am wondering if homeaway every updated to a Travel designation for billing purposes? I know that they updated with Chase, but I am unsure if I will be able to utilize my miles as a travel credit for this booking or not.

Hi,

VRBO did code as travel in one of my recent booking. Since HomeAway and VRBO are the same company, I am sure both will code as travel. Good luck.

Sweet! I was told by a rep that it won’t work but I’m going to try it anyway! Thanks!

Hi everyone, 

 

just an update, shortly after I booked the VRBO charge cleared and it was NOT coded as travel and wouldn’t count towards redeeming miles for travel related expenses. I quickly canceled my reservation and booked through Airbnb instead. Hope this helps!

So airbnb is coded as travel?

Yes, Airbnb is coded as travel and you are able to redeem your miles towards the stay.
