Any time you are planning a vacation, you’re probably looking for several ways to save money. Maybe you’re searching for coupons for attractions or affordable restaurants in the area, but one of the best ways to save money on a trip is to book direct with vacation rental companies. When you book a St. George vacation rental through an Online Travel Agency, or OTA, you can actually spend even more money compared to booking direct. Keep reading to learn more about how booking direct can save you money on our St. George rental properties.

Avoid Extra Fees

As previously mentioned, the best way to save money on your St. George vacation rental is to book direct with rental companies, like us. OTAs like Airbnb, VRBO, and Expedia charge guests extra fees to book through them. While every company has a different service fee percentage, you could save up to 15% by booking directly with us instead of going through one of these agencies. It may seem like their prices are cheaper, but when you go through the booking process, you will find a variety of extra fees that add to your final price.

Other Benefits of Booking Direct

There are several benefits to booking direct with us when you’re looking for St. George vacation rentals, in addition to saving money. Take a look at these other ways booking directly through Red Rock Vacation Rentals benefits you:

Direct Point of Contact

By booking directly with us, you won’t have to deal with OTAs. These agencies typically require guests to create an account in order to book your stay, which can be an inconvenience. You may have specific amenities you’re looking for, certain requirements the rental needs to meet, or general questions about a property that these agencies won’t be able to answer. When you book directly with us, you’ll have a direct point of contact with an informed guest services team that will be able to answer any questions you have.

Support Local Businesses

If supporting local businesses is important to you, then booking directly with us is a great way to do that. By eliminating the middleman, you’re helping local people support their livelihoods and families. You can feel good about where your money is going when you choose to book our St. George vacation rentals directly through Red Rock.

Knowledgeable About the Area

Another benefit of booking direct is having access to people who are knowledgeable about the Southern Utah area. These OTAs aren’t experts in our area, and they won’t know about the best restaurants to try, fun things to do in the area, and so much more you probably want to know. When you book through us, you’ll be able to contact us and get all kinds of information you wouldn’t be able to access through one of these rental companies. In addition, you can receive discounts to local golf courses, restaurants, and more when you book your stay through Red Rock Vacation Rentals!

If saving money is one of your top priorities when it comes to booking your next vacation, then you should definitely book direct with us! Are you ready to plan your trip? Look through our St. George vacation rentals, and find the perfect one for you!
