On February 5, 2020 is Book Direct Day and that means that when you book your vacation with Seaside Vacations, you can save some money too!  Let’s take a peek at why you should book direct with us below.

Why Book Direct?

Have you ever booked a vacation using a third-party vendor such as VBRO, Airbnb or something like that? Did you know that you are actually paying more for your vacation rental compared to booking direct? The reason that you are paying more for your vacation rental is because of the extra fees that are added to the vacation rental by just using their website. Many of the online booking websites add between 5% & 20% to the total price of the vacation rental. Instead you could be #bookingdirect with us and saving money instead. When you book direct with us, not only are you saving money, but you’re also getting the expertise and local knowledge too.

Local Recommendations

Whenever you book a vacation through a third-party website, you won’t be able to ask them questions about where to eat or anything else dealing with what is happening in the area. If a problem should arise at the vacation rental, they won’t be able to take care of it for you. When you book direct with Seaside Vacations, you are able to talk to someone who can recommend the best family-friendly places to eat at or where to shop. If something happens at your vacation rental, we will make sure a maintenance worker is sent to fix the problem. We too want to make sure that you and your family enjoy your vacation to the North Myrtle Beach area.
