Why Booking Direct is so Much Better
If you’re interested in getting away somewhere on the cheap, you may well be tempted by more than a number of websites offering you a choice of cut-price bookings at a range of hotels and holiday resorts. Sure, these deals may look good on the surface – but have you considered what other benefits might be available if you book directly with the hotel itself?
What comparison and deal sites such as Trivago and Lastminute don’t tell you is that you may well be paying more by directly involving a booking agent – it’s the same if you go through the high street. You not only run the risk of paying more, but you’ll also risk submitting your details to a range of different marketing lists you may not necessarily want to be bothered by. Booking directly with an hotelier or hotel means you cut these risks out completely – plus, you’ll lose out on any extra freebies you may be able to negotiate by speaking with a hotel directly.
Hotels and holiday resorts can sometimes throw in extras – a selection of chocolates or money off a few nights’ stay – while booking operators online and via high street have to stick to strict pricing guidelines. You might as well try your luck if you’re in it to get a good deal – and, let’s face it, these sites don’t hold the details for every hotel in the UK!
Take it from us – book direct and get an unbeatable deal.. While you may be tempted to go with a comparison site or online booking agent for cheap deals, you really will be surprised by what can be offered by booking direct. Grab yourself a bargain – and a pleasant surprise or two while you’re at it!
