Why is #BookDirect Better for Everyone?
The advantages of booking directly may not be obvious. Why does it matter how the booking is made? Here’s why it’s better:
- With no commission to pay, managers and owners may be able to offer a discount to guests
- Special offers are rarely found on the big websites (e.g. Expedia, Airbnb, TripAdvisor)
- Booking direct usually allows for more flexibility with dates and budgets.
- Guests have a better customer service experience when booking directly with their destination holiday property
- Managers and owners can help determine the best room and accommodation options for travelers
- Guests with special needs or requests are more reassured when dealing directly with the manager or owner
- Many great vacation properties aren’t listed on the big listing websites, not least because they already know that #BookDirect is better
