Haggart said this is the first of several promotions the company has planned for 2012. He said more and more travelers are utilizing Facebook and other social media networks to find vacation rentals.
“We get lots of questions from people looking for properties in areas where they’re planning vacations, and we respond as quickly as possible with options for them,” Haggart said. “Bookings and leads to property managers still go through our websites, of course.
