You’ve heard the term “book direct”, but what does it mean? There are a lot of sites out there competing for your business and they make their money from implementing service fees at your cost! It hurts a lot of people’s pocket to know they could have saved hundreds on their rental if only they could have found the company’s website first!

What Book Direct means: finding the rental you want is hard enough and using a third-party booking engine can have it’s advantages! At the end of the day, you can browse hundreds of vacation rentals on one site. Sometimes, by a simple Google search of the area, you can find your perfect rental and book directly through their website!

Why It Saves You Money to Book Direct: When you book through a third-party company, you are paying them for helping you find your perfect rental. You’ll always notice a “service fee” — that isn’t from the vacation rental company, it’s the cost you pay for using this service of searching an entire area and seeing different companies! Services fees can vary anywhere from $20 to $499, so booking directly with a property manager can add extra money to your budget for your dream vacation.
