VRBO's 'Premier Host' program

A little while ago, they sent me a congratulatory email inviting me to be a Premier Host. I promptly ignored them, not really knowing or caring what that was. (Maybe like Air’s Superhost?) Anyway, I did not sign up.

Today I get an email wanting me to do a survey about the program (of which I am apparently a member anyway. :slight_smile:

Does anyone know what this is? IS it a good thing? Worthwhile doing?

I will say that the questions and slant seem to be extremely host friendly, unlike much of what I hear about Air.

So called premier hosts get pushed up to the front page…other than that I find VRBO to be a lot less pushy and more business like.
Airbnb want to own my listings and feel far more interfering.


Yes, purely for the ranking boost, at no great cost to you.

I suddenly got a lot of VRBO bookings when they first told me I was a ‘Premier Host’ which I assume was like Air’s Superhost. Now not so much so wonder if they pushed it for a month or so. Some of them had booked through Expedia or other discount websites. Which was new. I think my place if great but it isn’t a 4 star hotel or commercial serviced apartment so I don’t want guests turning up thinking it is. On the other hand they don’t get to review it either.

Haha. We got one of these invites after they removed our superhost status for receiving a one star (untrue) review! We said no thanks! :slight_smile:


We’re “Premier Host” on Vrbo and have been since almost the beginning of the program. I don’t know if it helps, but it probably does not hurt.
Check the current T&C’s and see if you can live by them.
