TripAdvisor has strengthened its grip on the holiday home rental sector with a new acquisition.

The travel reviews site has bought Massachusetts-based rentals website Vacation Home Rentals for an undisclosed sum.

The company features more than 14,000 properties around the world.

The deal is the second for the TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals group in the last year.

TripAdvisor acquired Spanish holiday rentals site Niumba a year ago, a leading holiday rentals website in Spain.

It now features more than 550,000 rental properties around the world.

TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals president Dermot Halpin said: "We're thrilled to welcome Vacation Home Rentals to the TripAdvisor family.

"The team delivers a great experience for both homeowners and travellers and the inventory is a valuable addition to our fast-growing business."
