LeisureLink Plans Vacation Pricing Report
Pasadena-based LeisureLink, which operates an online vacation lodging site and related tools for vacation rental and other alternative vacation lodging providers, said over the weekend that it will be launching a new "Vacation Pricing Snapshot" list. The firm said the list tracks pricing trends and provides recommendations on when and where to book vacation rentals, and can be used by consumers to decide when to book their vacation lodging, based on if prices are dropping or rising in a market. LeisureLink said it will be providing the list on its site ABetterStay.com. The list breaks down the pricing trend broken down by lodging category--for example, 3-star vs. 4-star hotel, 1 bedroom versus 2 bedroom condo, etc.--and week to week changes in lodging prices, based on the firm's own data. LeisureLink is venture backed by Clearstone Ventures, Group RCI, and Mission Ventures.
