Why book your holiday cottage with the owners direct?

The answer quite simply, is value - by booking your cottage holiday with the owners direct, you are not paying for any additional agency commission, which in many cases can add up to 20% of the cost of a holiday cottage booking. In addition, by dealing direct with the owners, you know that you're speaking to the person that really knows their property and the area it's in, so you can make an informed choice for your holidays.
