National Book Direct Day - Year-Round Savings
National Book Direct Day was a success, helping save guests money all over the globe by booking direct with a qualified property manager.
As we continue into the high booking season for spring and summer travels, we want to remind you all that the savings doesn't just take place one day a year on February 1st for National Book Direct Day. The advantages of booking a vacation rental directly has huge benefits all year round.
- Saving you the High Commission fees that online travel agents charge and saving you the processing fee that those same travel agents charge (These fees can account for up to 22% savings on your next travel booking reservation).
- Working directly with a local expert makes your travel plans easier and more complete. A property manager knows all the ins and outs, has a large group of inventory to select from and can find you the perfect place and the perfect things to do for your next vacation.
- Don't get spammed. When booking on large OTA or online travel sites, all of your information is collected. Immediately you will see ads coming up on your social media feeds, texts to your phone, and emails galore. When you book directly with a property manager in an area that you're looking to go to, maybe not just this year but in future years, the only information you'll get will be information you're interested in. In other words, you'll be protecting your privacy.
- Working directly with the property manager that you are actually booking with allows you, the guest better connection and more answers right at your fingertips.
Cutting out the middleman always saves you Energy, Money, and Time!
