The biggest event in the cricketing calendar is right around the corner and, after 20 long years, it's coming home to England. Over one million people are expected to attend the Cricket World Cup — exciting stuff, though perhaps a little stressful for those of you who happen to live near one of this year's venues.
If you own a home near Lords or The Oval and plan on escaping the crowds with a well-timed getaway, wouldn't it be nice to cash in on your niftily-located abode? Well, this World Cup you can — with a little help from HomeAway.

Once the booking is sorted, you can be as hands-on or hands-off as you like. If you want HomeAway to take care of the details they will, leaving you free to enjoy your own getaway.
