The Vacation Bridge was jointly created by two top vacation rental software companies, Rental Network Software (RNS) and Virtual Resort Manager (VRM) in an effort to improve the overall connectivity of professionally managed vacation rental properties and the Online Industry Distribution Channels. In total, The Vacation Bridge supports 350 clients featuring more than 50,000 vacation rental units across the United States.

The ResortsandLodges.com RALBook availability search is currently in beta, but is already seeing significant vendor uptake and traveler engagement in over 30 cities throughout North America.
