Memorable Quotes:

I would say from the start to the next two to three years, we’re [Expedia-HomeAway and Airbnb] going to be working in parallel with similar solutions, but in different markets, i think in three to five years, we will increasingly move into the urban space. And certainly Hotels.com, Expedia, Orbitz, and Travelocity bring a lot more urban demand, and I think we’ll take advantage of that urban demand to build up Homeaway’s supply in those urban destinations.
