#BookDirect Guest Education Day is February 7th
This year, the vacation rental industry is coming together to help educate guests and travelers on the benefits that can be had when they #BookDirect. Many consumers don’t know this, but Online Travel Agencies are charging additional booking fees just for booking on their website. If you’ve booked a Fripp Island Resort vacation through anyone other than us, you’ve paid too much money! OTA’s (like VRBO, HomeAway and AirBnB) are adding additional booking fees to each reservation, which can add 5%-12% in fees to your booking total and can add hundreds of dollars of costs to your family’s vacation!
Why will you save if you #BookDirect? Because these websites add additional service fees on top what you are already paying in rent. #BookDirect means you get the best and most current price without any hidden fees. Below is an example of the pricing on VRBO versus booking direct with Fripp Island Resort for the same home, the same week.
Speak to the Planners who Know the Properties
Our reservations team knows the properties better than anyone and are available seven (7) days a week.
