Germany with the other German speaking countries, form the main European touristic market, which makes it a very interesting market, where to promote a vacations rental. Germany has not been left out of the impact, that has meant the irruption of Airbnb, neither the entry of Booking.com, in the vacation rental market. Even so, it has its own ecosystem of well consolidated websites, in which any vacation rental property, that wants to be promoted in the German market, should be advetised.
Before inserting an add, in a German vacation rental website, it is necessary to have all texts translated into German. After that, for the communication with the guests, English could be used without any trouble, in most cases.
With the following described websites, it can be reached a relevant exposition, in the German vacation rental market.
e-domizil offers a great audience to a holiday rental, both in terms of German travel agencies and their websites, with groups as important as TUI, or travel websites such as HolidayCheck.

Atraveo is one of the oldest vacation rental websites in Germany, founded in 1997, now belongs to the TUI Group and has been incorporated into e-domizil, with its conditions.
FeWo-direkt is the German subsidiary of Vrbo, formerly called HomeAway of the Expedia group since 2005, although the firm was founded in 1997, becoming the leading vacation rental listing site. Now a days it has lost part of its relative importance, but without a shadow of doubt it remains a benchmark and a very well known brand, in the German vacation rental world.
