So why should you book with an owner direct. Well many people don’t realise that they are paying a weighty premium when booking through one the larger online booking sites such as AirB&B, Tripadvisor Holiday Lettings, Booking.com and HomeAway.
These sites are charging guests anything from 6% to 20% surcharge on the rental price which can be up to a few hundred pounds for a week during peak season.
In addition to this the big sites also charge the holiday home owner a fee which is sometimes passed onto the rental price by the owner.
The result means not only is the customer out of pocket but so is the home owner too. The only ones benefiting from process is the big sites.
There’s no wonder a book direct movement is gathering pace.
Despite the big sites making it difficult for the potential guests to communicate with owners, there are still ways around this and here are some of the things you can do to find the holiday home owner and book directly with them to avoid the pricey surcharges:
