Tripadvisor, one of, if not the top, site where vacationers go before choosing their accommodations and finalizing their travel plans, seeking the opinion of other fellow travelers.  With over 20 million reviews and opinions, everyone is sure to find at least one review on something they are looking for, whatever it may be.  Vacation rentals were out of this loop for quite some time, but because vacation homes are on the rise, becoming an extremely popular option for traveler accommodations, Tripadvisor must have felt compelled to add them on to their vast directory of travel resources.

In order to do this, Tripadvisor has a partnership with Flipkey.com, a vacation rental reputation management website dedicated to collecting unbiased, real reviews from guests (much like Tripadvisor does).  These reviews on Flipkey are all pulled into Tripadvisor.  If the user wishes, he or she may click on one of the reviewed properties and book the property online, right then and there.
