    Did not want to post this on the other thread as it would have been on page 2 and a lot of people might not read that far.

    I Airbnb and VRBO my Wyndham points reservations in New Orleans. A few years this whole permit registration started and it's for each property you rent. It's a city thing not a state thing. At the time I tried to register but the city made it impossible as they wanted proof of ownership. Contracts and maintenance fees assesments were not enough. The city wanted a letter from Wyndham Vacations Club. Wyndham would not provide this and as the phone reps know nothing I went further up the ladder no luck. Well it's like Airbnb and the city gave up on the entire registration process as I never got regristered and they never cancelled my listings.
    Then last summer the registration permit thing started again. I ignored it hoping for the best. It was to be done by Dec.1. The last week in November I got a phone call from rep at Airbnb. She left me a message and sent me an email. She explained I should follow the registration link on my listings and there was a spot to put permit number or you could click on exempt which hotels and resorts properties are exempt from needing a permit as the hotel already has that. Happy camper was I. It worked like a dream took 3 minutes.
    Now I have to try and deal with VRBO in the same manner as I received an email from them they have pulled down my ads due to lack of permits.

    Where exactly is this EXEMPT option? I don't see it.

    I followed through on the registration email and voice mail message Airbnb sent me for my NOLA properties. The exempt was at the top of page. Need to click on. I can't say for any other city besides NOLA I hv the got notice on those properties as of yet.
    Right now I'm trying to contact VRBO by email which seems impossible. Guess I'll hv to break down and give them a call eekk

    Is my description of the property correct? Is that how you describe them too in your listing?

    I'm having trouble with AIRBNB on my timeshare listings ... they cancelled most of them. They are listed as Serviced Apartments when you look at the examples of Serviced Apartments the last example is TIMESHARE. They say my listimgs aren't properly categorized, I'm at my wits end.

    I found this to be the most appropriate.

    Probably time for you both to make calls to Airbnb and explain your properties are hotel/resorts. I wanted to share my story so others were aware.

    SNA27 I was surprised to see you were renting your Wyndham properties on Airbnb as you seem like such a newbie owner. Or was it not a Wyndham property that your renting?

    Newbie from 2016. I got sucked in July 2016. I never used my points in 2017 deposited into RCI, still sitting there expires 8/2020. I started using from February 2018. Got suckered again and but at least, I have been using Wyndham. I became an accidental Host on Airbnb in May 2019, when my son couldn't use the reservation I made for him at National Harbor. On my 4th rental right now! Just making lemonade!;)
