HomeAway laid down the law to vacation rental owners in the United States: When they renew their subscriptions, their properties must be online bookable. Some of HomeAway's foreign-based sites, such as Stayz in Australia, already require properties to be online bookable, and HomeAway is considering, but isn't yet mandating, that all properties outside the United States likewise be online bookable instead of enabling offline bookings involving guests and hosts.
