I am working with a private vacation rental agency that has about 100 homes they rent out. I have been using LodgingBusiness schema on the individual rental pages for quite a while, and I am wondering if there is value in changing the schema to Product / Accommodations like VRBO is using (see links below). Anyone feel strongly one way or the other? All the major vacation rental players seem to be using something different.

VRBO seems to be using Product / Accommodations

TripAdvisor is using LodgingBusiness

Airbnb is using broken Product Schema

Expedia is using Hotel
So glad you asked this Shelly. We are having the same issue. Also not sure where the bookings are going. When you click on that it sometimes says contact property and others have it going through a booking engine.
