To reserve vacation rentals in Indiana, visit a national vacation specialist site such as VacationRentals.com, HomeAway.com or FlipKey.com. Select a property from those listed, and click Book or Request to Book. Enter vacation dates and the number of guests in the online booking form to make a reservation. Alternatively, Indiana-based company Brown County Log Cabins, which specializes in log cabin vacation rentals in Indiana, asks visitors to call or email its office to make a reservation.
Vacation Rentals and HomeAway both offer the HomeAway Payments system for travelers to make payments for vacation rentals. To use this system to make a booking through either site, enter credit card details before submitting a reservation form online. If the property owner or manager accepts the booking, the system charges the credit card and sends a confirmation email. If an advertised property does not display a Request to Book or Book button, the owner makes contact via email with details about how to make a payment. The site offers advice to travelers on how to check if a vacation rental owner or property manager is legitimate.
FlipKey.com offers the FlipKey Payments system with a Peace of Mind Guarantee to travelers who reserve and pay for a vacation rental on the site using this payment method.
