We sent out a similar message last year, but this is such a big deal that #BookDirect Day is something that will be celebrated annually for years to come. In case you forgot, below is a refresher on why you should remember to #BookDirect...
There is a new movement taking place in the vacation rental industry-#BookDirect. What's this all about? Online travel agency's (OTA's) such as VRBO, Homeaway and TripAdvisor charge extra fees when you use them to book your vacation rental. So, not only are they unfamiliar with the property and area you are interested in, but they are charging you $100 or more for their ignorance! It's impossible for smaller property management companies to compete with the advertising budget of these mega-companies, so they will likely continue to pop up first in your online search when you are planning your next vacation. The motive behind #BookDirect is to get the word out that no matter where you are planning to go on your next vacation (we hope you'll be returning to Edisto!) you will get the best rate and experience if you #BookDirect with a local property management agency.
