We currently have agreements with the following travel agents:
With the exception of airbnb that they are absolutely horrible to work with ,all the other agents provide a reasonably good service but at a cost, which is passed on to the guests.
The commission varies from 12.5% to 15% on the VAT price, which means that a serviced apartment supplier like ourselves will have to pay between 15% and 18% on the net price reducing almost all of our profit.
When you book directly with us or any other hotel or serviced apartment provider, a lot of this cost will get passed on back to you either in the form of a discount on price or with more favourable cancellation conditions etc. Also a lot of guest requests would be much more likely to be taken care of free of charge.
So next time that you book, remember to book directly!
