With this post I want to dedicate a little time to an important topic with respect to purchases that you can do on the web and specifically about the holiday homes.
My aim is to help you move in the Internet “jungle” where you can find a lot of offers and options with the result that it is easy to get lost.
My many years experience both as a frequent traveler and as a pro in the tourism industry taught me how to choose the best solution avoiding any kind of bad surprises and I want to share this with you hoping to be of assistance.
Therefore I suggest spending a little more time paying attention when you are looking for the best accommodation for your holiday.
As everyone knows it is possible to find hotels or holiday homes through different channels with different prices, the reason is that there are several factors that affect.
Let’s talk about the specific sector of the holiday homes, how many steps or brokers are between the customer and the owner or manager of the holiday villa or house, or apartment you are interested in, represent one of the reasons that can influence the final price.
The commission percentage that is charged by a sale’s channel or another represents a further reason.
So to guarantee you in order to get a good price is to understand the commission percentage you are going to pay through the channel you book. In fact sometimes the same property is sold on different channels that apply a different commission, as well as there are many websites that do not apply commissions at all. A basic aspect is also represented by the payment methods.
I feel like affirming that the websites that allow booking your holiday through PayPal or credit cards are reliable for sure, as you can stop or dispute payment and get back your money at least partly, if your expectation is disregarded or in case of fraud.
Finally keep in high consideration the reviews you can easily find about the property you are about to choose for your holiday, or about the agency or manager you book through, as if an agency works well it will certainly have good reviews even if not on that specific property.
Well, I hope that this post of mine will be of some help, I did it as I live my job with passion and when I promote or sell a vacation I do it as if I’m booking for myself.
