HomeAway, the world leader in vacation rentals, reports that nearly three-quarters of Austin-area vacation rentals are already booked for weekend one (Oct. 6–8) of Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL Fest), and weekend two (Oct. 13–15) is close behind at 65 percent booked.

“We know that approximately two-thirds of the festival attendees are coming from outside the city, and many of them are bringing their kids and family members,” said Melanie Fish, travel expert for HomeAway. “Renting a home is the best way to stay for the long weekend — a quiet escape with more space and privacy to kick your feet up and reset your eardrums after a long day of music.”

Affordable for travelers, profitable for owners

The average three-bedroom home rents for around $450 per night during ACL Fest. With more than 290,000 festival attendees traveling to Austin over the two-week period, vacation rental owners of Austin stand to benefit greatly from filling their homes with music lovers.

Those homeowners wishing to take advantage of the high demand for vacation rentals during the festival still have the opportunity to list their home and vie for a premium-priced booking. An annual subscription to list on HomeAway costs $399, or owners have the option to list for free, paying a commission on each booking. All Austin rentals must be licensed with the city of Austin:
