Why Booking Direct is the Key to Unlocking Your Dream Vacation Rental Experience
When it comes to planning a vacation, choosing the perfect place to stay is one of the most important decisions you'll make. With so many online booking platforms out there, it can be tempting to use a well-known site like Airbnb or VRBO. But before you hit the "book" button, consider the many benefits of booking direct with vacation rental owners and managers.
One of the biggest advantages of booking direct with Catchin’ Paradise is saving money (and let’s be honest who doesn’t love to save a few bucks). By eliminating the middleman, you'll avoid paying any booking fees or commissions, leaving more cash in your pocket for souvenirs and other adventures. The total booking price if booked through our website as opposed to a booking platform is typically between 10%-20% cheaper. Check out this article from Business Insider where your Catchin’ Paradise hosts were contributors to the article What Your Airbnb Hosts Wish They Could Tell You (businessinsider.com). One of the biggest things we wish we could tell guest who book on platforms like Airbnb or VRBO is to take note of the property name and then research us online to save money.
When you book directly with us, you'll also have the advantage of better communication. No more sending messages through a third-party platform and hoping for a response. With direct communication, you can ask all the questions you have and have peace of mind knowing you have a direct line to the source.
Another benefit of booking directly is the increased flexibility you'll enjoy. We may be able to offer more lenient check-in and check-out times, and because you'll be working directly with us, you'll receive personalized service and insider tips and recommendations that will enhance your vacation experience.
Booking directly also allows you to support local businesses and keep money in the local economy. By choosing to work with us, you're helping to support our small business and contribute to the local community.
One of the biggest headaches of booking a vacation rental is worrying about hidden fees or surprise charges. When you book directly with us, you'll have a clear understanding of all the terms and conditions, including any additional fees or taxes, so there are no unpleasant surprises when you arrive. In addition to avoiding hidden fees, booking directly with us can also result in better deals. We offer exclusive discounts or special deals to guests who book directly, making it a win-win for both parties. Additionally, if you subscribe to our website we offer an initial booking discount and return guest discounts.
Another advantage of booking directly is the clarity of the cancellation policy. You'll have a clear understanding of the terms and conditions, and owners or managers might even offer more flexibility in case of a change in plans. At Catchin’ Paradise, we offer our Worry-Free Booking, which offers clear cancellation policies, professional housekeepers, and secure payment processing.
In conclusion, the benefits of booking direct with us are many. From saving money to receiving personalized service, and having more control over your stay, there are so many reasons to consider booking direct for your next vacation.
