Call Direct…

17th July 2017. One thing I hate is a monopoly and here in Australia Expedia and Bookings.com are establishing monopoly situations for accommodation bookings, hitting accommodation providers with exhorbitant commissions. The unkindest cut of all despite dragging almost a billion dollars out of Australia they pay little tax, playing the tip toe through the tulips of tax minimisation with off-shore structures etc. So people use these agencies by all means to find a property through them but then ring the property DIRECT for your booking – a grateful accommodation provider will probably give a discount when you explain.
