Why you should always book direct

Many of us today book our accommodation using third party companies. But did you know that (our current Winter Wine Offer aside) there are a number of big benefits to booking direct with a hotel?

Pay less

The main advantage of choosing to book a night away with the hotel itself, is that you pay less in terms of booking fees and commission. When you make bookings with third party sites, the hotel pays a commission that lies somewhere between 10% to 25%. Whilst this is a lot for the hotel, it often means paying more money for you too. By booking with a hotel directly, you might just save on these fees. If you’re someone who likes to support local businesses too, booking direct is a great way to do so.

Get more

Aware of the benefits of direct bookings, hotels often provide benefits for those choosing to book direct. This might include for example a free breakfast. On top of this, booking direct with a hotel also enables a more personalised service. If you’ve booked with a third party company, it might be a little harder to have your needs catered for. Perhaps you prefer a particular room, need to change the date of your stay, extend it, or would like something special prepared for your anniversary or birthday. When booking direct, your reservation is much more flexible and doesn’t have the restrictions you might get from other online sites.
