3 Reasons Why You Should #Book Direct
What is better than your yearly vacation? A vacation that costs you less money, of course! So many people are spending way more money on their vacation rentals without realizing it. We know it’s hard to know where to start when researching your next vacation. That’s why a movement was formed, and the first Wednesday of February is dedicated to educating guests to book directly through homeowners and property managers. Here are 3 reasons you should book direct.
1. When You Book Direct – There Are No Booking Fees
When you book directly through Gibson Beach Rentals, we’re going to give you precisely what you pay for with no extra booking fees! When you book through online travel agencies, you can end up paying up to 20% more on the vacation rental than when you book directly through a property manager or homeowner. Think that’s crazy? We do too! Why pay more for the same place when you don’t have to?
It’s no secret that more and more homeowners and property managers are steering away from the big OTA (Online Travel Agency) sites like booking.com, VRBO, and even AirBnB. So that means, you could be missing out on your perfect vacation home, by not booking direct or shopping local. You will ALWAYS get a better deal when you book directly through Gibson Beach Rentals.
2. When You Book Direct – You Get Direct Communication
We are passionate about giving our customers the best experience at the best price. We work hard to help you get the most out of your stay, which is why we won’t hand you over to a call center. Your vacation rental is personal, and that’s why we want to handle your booking from start to finish, personally. If you have a question, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email to get a response from our local employees.
As much as we try to avoid it, we know mishaps sometimes happen. But, having direct communication with a local company like ours gives us the ability to speak with you directly and fix it promptly. Rest assured that our employees are local and are going to be there for you to ensure you have the best local care during your vacation.
3. When You Book Direct – You Get Local Expertise
One of the best things about booking directly through local companies is: they are locals! You don’t get these types of advantages when you book through national companies. Get curated on- n-one service when you book directly through local companies. Turn a good vacation into a great vacation with a little help from our local experts. Check out our Facebook page where we share local tips on the Emerald Coast, and we even give you a beach check-in EVERY DAY!
Imagine sitting on the balcony of your beautiful beachfront condo soaking in the sunshine and drinking your morning coffee, knowing you saved money on your family’s dream vacation. That’s the feeling you get when you #bookdirect through Gibson Beach Rentals.
Are you planning a trip to the Emerald Coast? We’d love to help you find the perfect vacation rental that is right for you.
