In honor of #BookDirect Day, we at Elite wanted to reach out and let you know some of the reasons why it’s better to book directly, rather than through one of the major booking sites.
When you book through Elite, you save hundreds in fees paid unnecessarily to the third party channel for the same accommodations. Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway, and TripAdvisor all add hundreds of dollars of fees to your booking total.
Many of the vacation rentals with the highest demand aren’t found on those mainstream websites. By limiting your search, you might be missing out on the perfect place for your family or group.
When you book direct, you have direct contact with our property manager and benefit from Elite’s concierge. Peace of mind is important and when booking directly you can find out directly from the source whether the property has a kayak, a grocery store nearby, or that air mattress you might need.
Local managers have intimate knowledge about where you’re staying. Get the best advice from locals about where to eat, what to do, and which businesses to trust. Elite’s property managers would love to help, as would our concierge. Have kids, pets, or special needs? Our property managers can assist you to meet your individual needs before you commit to a booking.
The best service isn’t on TripAdvisor, Airbnb or VRBO and neither is the best price. Enjoy a more attentive, personalized experience, and save hundreds by booking directly with Elite.
