Did you know that when you #bookdirect with us you get the best price! You are not paying additional costs to a Third-Party Website and you are helping support a small British business.
Do you use VRBO, HomeAway, AirBnB, TripAdvisor, Booking.com, or Hotels.com?
These sites charge huge booking fees to either the traveller or the owner or both claiming to offer protection.
VRBO, HomeAway, AirBnB, TripAdvisor all charge travellers a fee but also charge the owners a fee. With a 15% to 20% targeted take rate, aren’t you paying a lot more?
For Booking.com and Hotels.com, the hotel or rental property pays a 15% to 20% fee. Ever wonder why hotels give you a subpar room when you book through a third party site?
Do these sites really protect you? VRBO, HomeAway, AirBnB, and TripAdvisor claim that they do.
They claim they will find you another place. This is not always possible in peak season if other properties are booked. You may end up in a subpar property or miles away from your original destination.
How to book direct:
- Look for the owner’s name or the property name.
- Do a Google search
- Contact the owner through Facebook, their own website, or a no-fee listing site.
How to book safely:
Do your homework. Check reviews and the history on listing sites for longevity.
