Don’t Hold Back On Our #BookDirect Day Special Offer!!!

Today, it’s a BIG day, it’s #BookDirect Day!!!!

And, here, at l’Ancienne Ecole, we have a surprise to make this day even better! So, stay tuned for more information later…

Before, just in case you did not know about it, here’s 7 reasons why you should book directly with the owner your next vacation rental ( Source: VRM Intel and Amy Hinote).

1 AVOID THE FEES.
Did you know that Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway and TripAdvisor add hundreds of dollars of fees to your booking total?

2 HELPS MAKE YOUR STAY BETTER.
When booking a vacation rental, peace of mind is important. Want to know if there is a grill, a kayak, 24/7 service, a grocery store close by? When you book direct, you can find out many of these important questions and more before you commit to booking.

3 THE BEST PRICE ISN’T ON OTAS OR LISTING SITES.
Unlike hotels, OTAs and aggregators (like Airbnb, Expedia,Booking.com, VRBO.comm, HomeAway,TripAdvisor, and FlipKey) don’t have the best price for travelers. In fact, you can save hundreds by booking direct and booking local.

4 MANY OF THE BEST VACATION RENTALS AREN’T LISTED ON THE MAJOR SITES.
Because of the cost of using the big sites, the best vacation homes with the highest demand cannot be found on the big websites. Along North Carolina’s beaches, alone, only 30 percent of the homes for rent can be found on the big websites. By limiting your search to the aggregating websites, you might be missing out on the best vacation home for your family or group.

5 OWNERS HAVE INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE DESTINATION AND THE HOME.
They can direct you the best rental for your needs and send you to the best activities, restaurants,and area service providers.

6 IF YOU HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS, A HOMEOWNER CAN HELP.
Looking for help with your family’s special needs or help with pets? A manager or owner can work with you directly to help with any of your individual needs and give you these assurances before you commit to a booking.

7 GET SPECIAL OFFERS.
During non-peak travel times, managers and owners have special offers available: From events and activities to special rates to onsite services, with direct communication with managers and owners, you get insider knowledge and the best offers.

——————————————————————————————————————–

Talking about Special Offer and as promised, here’s our most incredible surprise, just for you!

To celebrate #BookDirect Day, L’Ancienne Ecole offers you 500€ OFF the summer rate (was 4990€, now 4490€)!
Hurry! This special exclusive offer ends on 18/02/19!

Happy #BookDirect Day everyone!

Did You Know More Than 80% of Dordogne's Fixed Speed Cameras Are Out Of Action

#BookDirectDordogne#

According to 20 Minutes (https://goo.gl/wmcGjJ), more than 80% of the fixed speed traps are out of service in Dordogne (50% in France). And the reason is a familiar one: they've been vandalized. The destruction range from covering speed cameras in paint to wrapping them in clingfilm or in rubbish bags to prevent the camera from working.
