With such a significant number of new booking sites springing up, how would you know which is the best site to utilize? Which site offers the best deals? Would it be a good idea for you to book your get-away on VRBO, Airbnb, TripAdvisor, Booking.com, travel agency, or book direct? In this blog, we want to spare you long periods of surfing the net so you can invest more energy enjoying your trip.
1. Booking direct is cheaper
Booking specifically with the property manager is less expensive (no commission) and better for the buyer (no administration charge). In the case of requesting a discount, you will probably get farther dealing with the exclusive property manager versus third parties.
2. Booking direct will give you local knowledge
We live here and no one knows the island better. We know the houses, the shorelines, the trails, and the eateries. With our help we can make sure you choose the right villa for you and your vacation needs.Whether for your family and friends or a romantic getaway.
3. Booking direct can improve your booking experience
Smaller property management agencies can’t contend with the promotional spending plans of bigger brands (like VRBO and Airbnb), so they center around different things like customer service, offering advantages only available to direct bookings.
4. Most agencies will offer a “best-rate guarantee”
A best-rate guarantee means that booking directly through the property management company will result in the lowest price for a particular property.
5. Booking direct protects you from fraudulent listings
A legitimate property manager will never demand that you wire funds as the only means of payment. If the villa you’re considering is dramatically discounted, it’s probably too good to be true. Villas Virgin Gorda is well established and has been in business for over a decade.
Villas Virgin Gorda is a professional property management and booking agency with an inventory of exclusive listings. All of our guests receive personal on-island assistance, knowledgeable reservation staff, and complimentary concierge.
