As a "traveller", I received this piece of information from homeaway.co .uk:

"Vrbo is here for you
Your HomeAway account will become your Vrbo account, and your login details will remain the same. Emails and updates about your trip will now come from Vrbo."

Hardly "it says what it does on the tin" is it!
vrbo could be anything - none of it flattering!
I wonder why they thought this was a good move?

This was announced over about a year and half ago. Wonder what took them so long to implement the changes.
Blame the parent Expedia.

I used to be with home away. Got rid of them 3/4 years ago.

When I got enquiries I had set up to rx a text message.

Ive just starting using e bay, and I couldnt remember my password.

So I got a text from them with a code, and it was from the same telephone number that Homeaway used to send me enquiry details from.
So Im assuming theres a reason for that? Are home way now linked with ebay?

It seems that one can't do very much of importance on the internet these days without providing the extra layer of security in the form of a one-time code sent to one's phone or email. Perhaps it has become big business and there are now code providers. Perhaps Ebay and VRBO (HomeAway) use the same provider. Just a theory - probably wrong.
