1. Look in the Off Season
Many rentals are listed at a good price depending on their location and if it's an off season. Property owners usually list their rentals at a lower price during seasons when there are fewer travelers in their area. Although VRBO does not offer any discounts on their website, they do update their Facebook regularly with new listings. This gives renters the upper hand in choosing a rental during an off season and spending less money.
2. Property Owners May be Willing to Negotiate
By contacting the property owners individually travelers can negotiate a price that may be lower than what VRBO is offering per night.
