    Vrbo Is Cracking Down on Super Bowl Parties in Rentals

    Vrbo is trying to help property managers detect football fans who want to rent homes over the Super Bowl weekend to throw unauthorized parties by tracking factors like length of stay and number of guests. If a Vrbo booking is deemed high risk, the host receives an email alert and can cancel the guests’ booking penalty-free. Guests are also sent an alert reminding them of the company’s no-parties policy. “Even though disruptive party houses are rare on Vrbo, addressing them is still a priority,” said Philip Minardi, director of public affairs at Vrbo parent Expedia Group. “By deploying this new solution and working closely with local hosts, Vrbo is preventing problematic behavior before it starts.”
