The results in The State of Vacation Rental Tech’18 are based on large survey conducted from January to July 2018. The questionnaire-based survey counted 900 participants across Europe, North& South America, Asia, Australia and Oceania. The participants were segmented into Property Managers, Property Owners, Vacation Rental Technology Providers and Listing Sites. Some of the companies interviewed can be found in the Who’s Who of Vacation Rentals 2018 Directory.
