HomeAway Subscription Price Increasing to $499
You may have already heard the news but just in case you haven't we wanted to inform you that HomeAway is increasing the price of all subscription listings from $399 to $499 starting tomorrow January 12th, at 7:00 AM PST. If you haven't already done so there is still some time to renew early to get another year for $399.
How to Renew Early (Owners)
For customers using our owner integration, you renew your listings through MyVR. If you want to renew one or more listings early for $399, please fill out this form. We need to receive your response by 7:00 AM PST on January 12th in order to process your request.
How to Renew Early (Property Managers)
For customers using our property manager integration, you renew listings directly via HomeAway. If you renew through your account manager the listing must be expiring before July 12th HomeAway dashboard in order to qualify for early renewal. If you renew a listing manually in your HomeAway dashboard then there is no limit to how early it can be renewed.

I did, it's legit and I am grateful to the team for sending it. My (non-integrated) HomeAway listing expired a month ago and I never got the email concerning their rate hike, 10% match-back charge, etc. This has moved up my decision about relisting to 10am EST tomorrow. Thanks guys!
Hi @Jenny-Story - yes, as @Ann-D-Liptak states, it is legit. Sorry if it came across as suspicious. We realize the timing is compressed, but we wanted to send our own reminder to our customers in case they wanted to take advantage. As the to the 10% Ann mentions, we have a thread on that here.
@Ann-D-Liptak - you're welcome, and thanks for the response!
Thanks @Markus-Nordvik. I did a bit of searching and saw the thread you mentioned. Yes. It was the compressed timeline that made me think it wasn't legit. Followed the link and signed up. You saved me $400! Thanks for the heads up. I don't know why but I hadn't seen this anywhere else. I appreciate you guys watching out for us.
