5 Reasons to Book Your Accommodation Direct
Finding the right Accommodation, especially for the first time, can be a challenge. People often find it easier to book through a Third-Party site where all their options are displayed in a convenient list.
But there are certainly advantages to picking up the phone and calling direct to make your next reservation. Here are our 5 top reasons:
1. Get the best price for your accommodation
We guarantee that our direct price is lower than our online prices simply because we are passing on the savings to you with the commissions that need to be paid to the third-party site. If you should find a better price on a Third-Party site and call us directly, we will be more than happy to match it. It will save us paying expensive commissions on your booking.
2. Flexibility with your accommodation booking
If you need to make changes to your booking (name changes, arrival/departure dates) you’ll be able to do it easily if you’ve booked direct with us. If you book with a Third-Party site, you will have to make changes through their site which can often be a lengthy and difficult process. Contacting them is usually difficult because their call centres are based overseas.
3. Book the room you want
If you book direct, you can make sure you get the facilities you require. Often Third-Party sites use general language and descriptions which do not suit a local boutique accommodation provider and can be misleading. If you jump onto our website, you’ll see photos and descriptions that accurately portray the services and accommodation we offer.
4. Money stays local
The most popular Third-Party sites are not based in Australia, so commissions paid go straight overseas. If you book direct through us, the money stays local and can be used to better your accommodation experience.
Local businesses also play a big part in keeping a community vibrant by employing local staff, supporting local events, and using local suppliers.
5. Third-Party sites avoid paying Australian taxes
As Third-Party sites are not based in Australia, they avoid paying Australian taxes despite taking money directly from Australian businesses. Dick Smith said it best here. I encourage you to take the time and view Dick Smith’s campaign to get Aussies to book direct!!
