September 21, 2016 by ccbass007

No Booking Fees For Guest/Traveler:

You can now save hundreds of dollars on your next great vacation by booking through No Booking Fee Vacation Homes Rental By Owners instead of the big box listing sites, like VRBO, HomeAway and Airbnb, who charge you a traveler service fee to book and pay through their website.

It’s easy, find your perfect rental home, then book direct with the owner/manager and save money. No 3rd party commissions charged to owners, no guest booking fees. Contact information clearly listed or register and sign in to send contact form. No booking fee vacation rental homes save the traveler and host from paying unnecessary booking fees.

PLEASE NOTE: Some listing sites also charge the owners a hefty percentage/fee for each booking travelers don’t see. We do not. Reducing this burden helps vacation home owners pass the savings on to their guests!

Simply signup and login to contact vacation rental owners to book direct. The way it should be.

No more:

  • Excessive Booking Fees
  • Service Fees
  • Annoying Pop-ups
  • Up-sells and add on’s
  • Bait and switch pricing
  • Clunky forced app use

Below is a sample of what online travel sites charge when you book through them. It adds up fast. Save money booking direct.

**Note: Guests see how adding on 3rd party booking fees leaves less money to spend on vacation. Some big listing sites add up to 15% from the traveler or host which is added on to total rental cost.
