Who We Are

We built a better vacation rental website from the ground up. Then we made it free. Skipjump. Vacation rentals, by owner, direct to the traveler.

Skipjump's powerful technology allows travelers to search, sort, review and book thousands of vacation properties from more than 13,000 locations worldwide. Then we help pull the whole vacation together with offers for related services like air travel, car rentals and local attractions.

It's one-stop shopping for the do-it-yourself traveler. It's easy, fast, fun and free. It's Skipjump. Get your vacation on.

You've got a great vacation place to rent. Want to maximize your exposure to an in-market audience of savvy travelers, in real-time, for free? You're in the right place.

On Skipjump, you can:

  • List your property type, location, rates and availability
  • Upload up to 30 photos
  • Add details, like amenities and nearby attractions, to increase marketability
  • Use our mapping feature to help renters visualize your location
  • Access and manage qualified renter leads with no spam – our custom search features give you ready-to-rent contacts, not casual shoppers

We won't tell you what to post or when to publish. Skipjump is truly self-service. You book and manage your property on your schedule, as far in advance as you like. We'll never charge a fee, and promise not to spam you, either.

Talk it Up  Inspired by popular social networking websites, Skipjump's interactive tools allow travelers to rate and review their vacation rental experiences, which can create a buzz about your place.

How Skipjump Makes Money

Skipjump connects vacation property owners, managers and travelers for free. No hidden agendas. Just an easy-to-use marketplace for rental accommodations.

You'll notice ads for related services, like air travel, car rental and vacation attractions. When you click on these ads, we make money. We even make it easy, by offering ads specific to your destination. After all, if you're going to Hawaii, you don't need ski lift tickets.

By clicking on our targeted ads, you get services that help pull your whole vacation together, and we get revenue to keep bringing our powerful vacation network website to you. It's a win-win.

About the Ads  We place only those ads that can actually be helpful in planning your trip. No miracle diet banners. No surveys or sweepstakes invitations. Just travel-related offers and services that put the tools to create your dream vacation at your fingertips.

Our advertising partnerships allow Skipjump to offer one-stop-shopping for all your travel arrangements. Find your perfect vacation place, and then click on our ads to fill out your trip. And if there's a vacation must-have we don't feature on the site, let us know.

For Property Managers and Agents, Skipjump has developed a platform that automates delivery, updates, and distribution on sites like AOL Travel, Cheaptickets.com, Local.com and many other popular, high-traffic travel websites. Learn more about Distribution Network Service »
