How can you be sure you are getting the best holiday deals? Even in the age of online booking with price comparison sites it can be hard to know what truly the best way is to find that perfect holiday home. From considering location and facilities to budget, there is a lot to think about! Sometimes, to ensure you have the most seamless experience as possible, it is best to go straight to the source and book direct. We have put together a few good reasons why booking direct is best.
#BookDirect cut out the middle man and save
The best reason to book direct is the money you will save! Many online holiday booking sites like Booking.com, AirBnB, Trip Adviser, HomeAway and so on add fees to your booking total. This can amount to a lot of ££££££’s. Imagine what you can do with the money you save – a vineyard tour, extra spends for the market days, a visit to Chateau? The list is endless.
Because of the cost of using the big sites, some of the best holiday homes can’t be found on the major websites. By limiting your search to these websites, you might be missing out on the best accommodation for your family or group.
However, while online travel operators and comparison sites are useful to see what accommodation is available for your chosen destination, when you cut out the middle man, you cut out the commission and fees they charge! Many holiday rentals have a “best price guarantee” for booking direct, so it’s always worth having a look to see if there’s a better deal available and booking direct.
#BookDirect to build that relationship and tap into great local knowledge
Not everything in life, or in holidays, comes down to money. There are a wide range of benefits to booking direct that can’t be summed up on a receipt. A direct exchange between buyer and seller inevitably results in a closer connection and builds that worthwhile relationship.
Owners have intimate knowledge about the destination and accommodation, they know the property and the area better than anyone and can help you plan a better holiday experience, optimising dates and budgets to suit your needs.
They can send you to the best activities, restaurants, and local sights.
When booking a holiday accommodation, peace of mind is vitally important.
Want to know if there is a water-park, a hot-tub, a supermarket close by? Want to know where the best markets are and on what days? Want help to book your excursions? When you book direct, you can find out many of these important questions and more before you commit to booking.
From events and activities to special rates to onsite services, with direct communication with owners, you get the insider knowledge and the best offers!
#BookDirect – accommodating your special and travel needs
Travellers with special needs and requests can work directly with the owner in a much more personal way to give you assurances before you commit to booking and to help you create a guaranteed amazing holiday experience.
If your trip doesn’t turn out exactly as you planned and you need to change dates or even cancel your accommodation outright, you will often find that holiday rentals are far more accommodating with direct bookers. Booking through a comparison site may leave you at the mercy of their terms and conditions, which are designed to protect their commission. Whereas booking direct can often have far more favourable conditions, especially if you’re a valued loyal customer.
Return guests are truly welcome, owners love to welcome you back again and often reward your loyalty with special discounts and offers.
It’s easy! #BookDirect gets better results, better value and a better holiday!
