Five Reasons New York Travelers Book Direct

When booking New York vacation rentals, you have two options. You can book directly with homeowners and local management companies, or you can go through a third-party site like Airbnb, TripAdviser.com and Booking.com and pay more. While the latter is certainly a common route, experienced travelers are likely to avoid it.

Here are five reasons travelers ditch the big online travel agencies and book direct instead.

ict-cclh

1. Best Price Guaranteed
Third-party booking sites add a high percentage of service fees to the reservation total. A service fee of 20 percent on a $1500 week stay is 300 bucks; money that is better spent on a nice meal a fun activity like horseback riding, or shopping in the town you’re staying in. These Lake George cabin rental offer such experiences.

2. No Surprises
When you book direct, there are no surprises—hidden fees or otherwise. (You can rest easy knowing your personal information will not be sucked up into the wide world of data mining and aggressive targeted marketing.)

3. More Flexibility
We’ve all experienced minor bumps in our travel plans that forced us to modify our trips. Unfortunately, most booking sites are not understanding. The real people interacting with you when you book direct offer tailored pre- and post-stay communication to ensure you still have a great vacation no matter where you visit in the US – some of the best Michigan vacation rentals can easily be booked direct.

4. Exclusive Options
Did you know that many of the best vacation rentals are not listed on the major sites? Listing on a major site costs money that many homeowners do not want or need to spend. Don’t miss out on these hidden Tennessee Smoky mountain cabin gems!

5. Better Customer Service
Do you have any questions about the property or the area that aren’t already addressed on the website? When you book direct, you get personalized answers and genuine human interaction. No one can give you better trip advice than a local. Connect with the owners of these cabins in Voyageur National Park.

Bottom line: For the best homes and the best experiences, #BookDirect.

The #Catskills Region and Area Vacation Rentals:

Whoever said the road was long and the journey was the destination seemed to have had it right. The Catskills vacation rentals at RentNewYorkCabins.com seem to be the perfect retreat for the soul. This area is densely populated with cabins & cottages in forests, near lakes, rivers & mountains. There are 35 mountain peaks to be exact and all under a three hour drive from Manhattan, New York. Whether you’re an adventurer or simply just like breathtaking views, this region has it all.

If excitement is your thing try mountain biking over the rolling and sometimes quite brisk landscape. Don’t own a bike? That won’t be a problem, there are many bike rental companies in the area that can help you. There is also zip lining, but not for the faint of heart. Try the 2nd largest zip line in the world at Hunter Mountain! Water rafting, kayaking, tubing, and canoeing is also very popular in the region.

What might be more popular than all those exciting adventure options is Fly fishing. The Catskills region is dubbed the “Fly Fishing capital of the world” by many. Beaverkill and Trout heavily populate the streams and rivers. Sullivan county is known for its popular fly fishing sport.

If none of that floats your boat, try the Shawangunk wine trail that shows off its 14 family owned wineries. Each wineries represents wine and food pairings from a different country. They host a variety of events throughout the year and even heavily discount tickets to designated drivers. All well thought out and beautifully orchestrated.

The Catskills offers a vintage train that rides along its 12 mile track allowing visitors and residents take in the scenery, You might even be able to see a Bald Eagle!

Another cool thing visitors could do is hike up to Kaaterskill fall in the town of Hunter on the eastern side of the Catskills. Kaaterskill is the largest two drop waterfall that cascades down over 260 feet in all of New York.

Don’t let the cool weather slow you down either. There are four major mountains where you can ski and snowboard your heart out.

Many factors drive price: where and how long you want to rent, the number of bedrooms and capacity, lakefront VS off water, and whether you bring a dog. If you are fortunate to experience a lakefront vacation, expect the dock, rowboat (or) canoe, firepit, deck and outdoor grill to be included. Rental owners do a great job to make you vacation memorable. So memorable in fact, that you’ll make the cottage-getaway an annual event.
