Why Should You #BookDirect with Seaside Vacations?

Travel planning on computer

Are you and your family planning a vacation to North Myrtle Beach this year? We need to tell you why you should #bookdirect with us if you are.

Seaside Vacations wants to make sure that you get the most out of your money when visiting the North Myrtle Beach area. The only way that you’ll be able to enjoy your vacation without getting hit with that unexpected fee is by booking direct today!

What You Need to Know About Booking Direct

On February 2nd, 2022, we celebrate the 5th Annual Book Direct Day, which was created to help educate vacation rental guests on the benefits of booking directly through an owner or Property Management Company vs. using a Third-Party agency such as Airbnb, HomeAway, VBRO & TripAdvisor.

While you may recognize these big-name companies and their gimmicks in helping you save money, you will soon learn that they will charge you a fee for using their website. Who wants to pay extra just to try and save a little money? Some of the expenses that you may incur when you book with an OTA can range from 5%-20% of the total cost of your vacation rental, which in turn can cost you thousands of dollars extra depending on which rental you choose.
