When you think of booking a vacation condo, many people’s first thought is to go through a booking service like Airbnb, VRBO, or HomeAway. These companies are essentially online travel agents that bring potential guests, homeowners, and managers together. What most travelers don’t understand is that these vacation condos are managed through property management companies that allows bookings directly through their own websites for a lower price. If you are looking to book a vacation rental in Snowmass, Colorado, be sure to book direct condo rentals in Snowmass with Timberline Condominiums to save money on your getaway!
Why Book Direct Over Other Methods
Booking direct simply means reserving a stay directly with a professional management company or host like Timberline Condominiums. Some of these benefits to consider when working towards a direct booking strategy are: Direct communication between guests and owners/managers allows for more personal connection and vetting before either decides to rent a vacation rental home, more control over house rules and terms and conditions, more payment options and flexibility, the owner/manager has more control over cancellation policies, extenuating circumstances, and other provisions. Along with these direct benefits, when booking Snowmass direct condo rentals with Timberline Condominiums, you are also supporting a local Snowmass business. Timberline is located and operated in the very city you are seeking to visit. Stimulating the local economy ensures that you can continue to visit this amazing vacation destination for years to come.
How Direct Booking Saves You Money
Airbnb, VRBO, and HomeAway are simply there to be a go between between renters and owners. In the case of VRBO they charge an upfront listing fee and gain exposure to the traffic generated by their ad spend. And in the case of Airbnb they charge an unreasonably low 3% fee on each booking you get through their platform, but guests pay a service fee in addition to the rental amount. Along the way these companies sought more and more control over the available inventory, and how property owners and managers were to conduct business. These online companies have moved to a more pay-per-booking model with heftier transaction fees, more similar to hotels and they have sought to discourage any cross-listing of a property on multiple sites. If you choose to book directly through a property’s management company, you will save money on these excessive fees and in many situations you can get a better nightly rate.
