Connecting Rentals Worldwide was formed by Connecting Rentals, Inc. Owner & Founder Debbie Martin and rental agent David Huard in response to the growing number of property Owner concerns about the rapid growth, price increases and stronghold over the online vacation rental marketplace by large listing networks. Huard mentions, "The term 'monopoly' is used regularly by many Owners in reference to some of these networks when discussing vacation rentals and online listing services. Some Owners are even beginning to feel that they could stand to lose control over their own vacation rental businesses if something doesn’t change."

Worldwide Partner Deb Martin upholds that it is the steady focus on site quality, performance, affordability and service that will set apart from network sites in the coming years. She states, "Much value has been lost as the networks have grown. We know because we've been there. Our agency had been marketing properties on listing sites for years - back when was considered the go-to site for vacation rentals. As time went on, we became more and more frustrated with the price increases without any difference in listing performance. If anything, we felt that our listings had become lost. What finally drove us away was the lack of flexibility and proper customer service. We said, “it isn’t worth it anymore. Let’s develop our own listing site and include everything that we like, take away everything that we don't like, listen to people’s feedback and make real changes."

The partners behind Worldwide have over 30 years of combined experience marketing, booking, and servicing vacation rentals. They have studied the industry’s online marketplace and its growth for many years. They believe that they can deliver a viable alternative that will help bring value back to vacation home Owners.

Connecting Rentals Worldwide Partner & Senior Front End Developer David Huard says, "If you're a vacation rental Owner reading this article, we would not recommend that you run out and cancel your listings on the HomeAway or Flipkey networks just yet - let them expire," he laughs.

When Owners list their properties on, they can be assured that the people behind the site will listen, understand, and will take their collective feedback into account with a clear long-term vision of developing the best vacation rental listing site on the web.

The company is excited to bring their high quality, low cost alternative to the online marketplace. They look forward to helping Owners enjoy better choices while increasing their rental revenues.
