Get the best price on your Holiday Rental

When searching for the perfect holiday vacation rental  for your family there are a variety of things you consider.  – Does it have the right number of bedrooms? Is it close to the beach that you love best?  Does it have parking,  How many can it accommodate?  Of course the most important criteria is the price and does it fit your budget?

Recently HomeAway, VRBO and  Owners Direct implemented a traveler fee, booking fee or service charge for reservations made through their websites.  It varies from 4% to 10% of the total value of the booking. When booking through these sites, you can review the fee by looking at the “view details of the booking section”
Of course you don’t have to book through these sites and you can avoid the HomeAway Service charge.  Most owners have their own websites where you can book direct, a quick google of the property name and area will normally lead you to the owners website.  Book direct with the owner, have a call before booking and best of all save the booking, service charge fee.  

Of course HomeAway gives you booking peace of mind and protection when booking through their site. This is paid for by the service fee, lots of people like to buy peace of mind which is great if you are comfortable with that? But does this offer value for money when a quality holiday travel insurance policy may possibly be purchased independently for less?

On our own website we offer a number of properties in the Le Touquet area where you will save at least 10% of the price when booking direct with us. We have been offering quality accommodation in the area for more than 10 years and have received many favorable reviews.  We offer online booking and payment by credit card providing you with payment  protection.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
