#BookDirect with KeyStay and save £pounds on your Brighton accommodation bookings!

Book direct and save £££'s!

Owners & property managers across the globe are using the HASHTAG #bookdirect to help educate guests on the advantages of booking directly with owners and property managers to obtain the best price for bookings.

There are many advantages in bypassing third-party channels to book directly with management companies and homeowners. Both management companies and owners strive every single day to provide amazing experiences for guests. OTAs and third party sites have made recent changes to their business models that are detrimental to both guests and vacation rental providers (including managers, owners, and hosts).

Did you know that Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway and TripAdvisor add hundreds of dollars & pounds worth of fees to your booking total?

The best price isn’t on the OTAs:

Unlike hotels, OTAs and aggregators (like Airbnb, Expedia, Booking.com, VRBO.com, HomeAway, TripAdvisor, and FlipKey) don’t have the best price for travelers. In fact, you can save hundreds by booking direct and booking local.

How can you #BookDirect?

You can usually find clues in the property listings on the online travel agency ( OTA) sites eg the Property name or the Property management name will be visible on the listing.

It is always worth a Google search on the property name or right click the image to search Google by image you will see all the sites that use the image and find your way to the direct source of the property listing. Just compare prices! You will be glad you did you can save £100's !! and Dollars and Euro's!

Try local or regional listing sites Lots of owners have their own web pages or advertise on small local agency websites such as KeyStay who work very hard to answer guest queries on the owners behalf.

You can search by area or name. Also, check for a local or regional facebook “groups' . You will find many owners on these groups and you can post what you are looking for or ask for recommendations.

Use StaySavr.com to unveil owner contact info on Homeaway or Booking.com You can either use their new look up tool at www.staysavr.com/look/ or install the browser extension called “staysavr” in your browser. It is available from www.staysavr.com . Once installed, you can visit Homeaway. Owners Direct & Travel Mob A reported 70% of the listings will now show the owner’s phone # or email address and you can contact them directly! Either option is a great way to save big $.

Use the major listing sites to search for properties you like.

Make a note of the “name” the owner has given the property….like Parker's Pad, Upper North Street. Then go to Google and search for that name, chances are the owner has a website or a local agency that will allow you to book direct.

If you are using Google’s Chrome browser, simply right click on the main photo of the house and select “Search Google for image” to find that image on the web. There is a good chance the owner uses the same images on his own site.

When you book direct, you have direct contact with the manager or owner: When booking a vacation rental, peace of mind is important. Want to know if there is a stairgate, a garden, a grocer's close by, or more in depth parking information? When you book direct, you can find out answers to many of these important questions and before you commit to booking.

Managers and owners have intimate knowledge about the local destination: They can direct you the best property for your needs and send you to the best activities, restaurants, and area service providers.

If you have SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS, a manager or homeowner can help: Looking for help with your family’s special requests or help with pets? A manager or owner can work with you directly to help with any of your individual needs and give you these assurances before you commit to a booking.

During non-peak travel times, managers and owners have SPECIAL OFFERS available: From events and activities to special rates to onsite services, with direct communication with managers and owners, you get insider knowledge and the best LAST MINUTE DEALS & offers.

So remember to use the hashtag #BookDirect #Brighton @key_stay on Twitter & find your way to us !

Good Luck!

Love & best wishes from Jane of KeyStay Brighton !!
