Avoid travellers fees - book our Puglia Holiday Villas direct with the owner

More and more of the big rental websites are being slammed for adding additional travelers’ fees to the cost of renting holiday accommodation.  Owners Direct, part of the Expedia Group has been accused of being greedy for adding a booking fee.

“The company, which is part of the Expedia Group, is now charging a 4% to 8% ‘service fee’ to customers who book accommodation through the site, but is still charging property owners the same annual fee to advertise.”

With most of the mainstream rental sites jumping on the band wagon guests may be wondering how they can avoid the additional fees. Remember too, that the majority of property owners are paying to advertise on the rental sites.

You must, of course, consider whether there is any value to you in booking through a mainstream website and paying the additional cost. Expedia and other rental websites claim that they are providing additional financial security for guests booking properties through their websites. However much doubt has been cast over the value of the “guarantees” offered. At the very least they do not exceed the protection you get when you pay with a major credit card.

If you have decided there is no advantage to paying the additional travelers’ fees to the rental website where you find the property what should you do.  Genuine property owners who are serious about renting their properties to holiday guests will be promoting their property in many ways; with their own website, on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc. If you have found a property you like on one of the mainstream rental sites, first check to see if you are going to be charged an additional travelers’ fee if you book through that site. Remember none of the additional travelers’ fees are paid to the owner. Armed with the property details a search on the internet should help you find the property you are interested in and allow you to contact the owner direct. For tips on how to make sure the property is as advertised check this article. Genuine property owners will be happy to provide you with all the information you need to verify that “what you see is what you get”!
