Vrbo and NoiseAware partner to provide noise monitoring solutions

US: Expedia Group vacation rental brand Vrbo has partnered with leading modern noise monitoring company NoiseAware to provide vacation home owners and property managers with access to exclusive pricing and services for NoiseAware noise monitoring solutions.

At the same time, NoiseAware is offering Vrbo homeowners discounts of up to 50 per cent and property managers with multiple properties 60 days free with overnight monitoring and guest messaging services at no extra cost.

NoiseAware aims to provide a privacy-safe way to wirelessly monitor decibel levels inside vacation rentals and notify homeowners and property managers when noise levels reach or exceed customisable thresholds.

Homeowners and property managers are typically able to resolve 95 per cent of noise issues remotely, and 75 per cent of noise issues within 15 minutes. This often helps to prevent and eliminate unruly guests, noise fines, neighbourhood complaints, and costly damage to the property.

Andrew Schulz, CEO of NoiseAware, said: “Countless families have trusted their family vacation with Vrbo, and our solutions help homeowners and property managers continue to host amazing family vacations while also enforcing responsible rental practices. NoiseAware solutions enable early detection and intervention of excessive noise before they become bigger disruptions.”

NoiseAware does not record, stream or transmit audio, and only measures sound levels by frequently taking decibel readings and applying it to a Noise Risk Score. Vrbo homeowners and property managers that use NoiseAware are required to include the information on their property listings.

Kevin Locraft, Expedia Group vice president of partner success, vacation rental, said: “Vrbo is dedicated to providing a safe and secure marketplace for travellers, homeowners and property managers. Working with NoiseAware as a trusted noise monitoring solution furthers our commitment to helping our homeowners and property managers provide great vacation rental experiences for their guests and their communities.”

More than 1000 leading US property management companies and thousands of single property owners use NoiseAware solutions to protect more than 2.5 million vacation rental nights booked.
