Cornwall Holiday Homes Direct is a community of owners of high quality holiday homes in Cornwall who prefer to connect and book directly with their guests without booking fees or commission charges.
Most online travel agents like TripAdvisor, the HomeAway group (including VRBO and Owners Direct) and Airbnb charge steep booking fees on top of the owners price for your holiday, for doing relatively little beyond being the portal through which you book your holiday.
Many agents like Cornwall Cottages or Cornish Horizons also charge booking fees, or if they don't you can bet that the cost of their services and more will be built into the cost of your holiday.
By booking with the owner directly, you can avoid these fees and will almost always get a better price for your holiday. Cornwall Holiday Homes Direct owners really care about your holiday experience and want to make it the best it can be. Many use their holiday homes themselves and have a wealth of knowledge about the surrounding area and how to get the most out of your stay.
If you are worried about fraud, be assured that this is rare, despite what the media would have you believe, and that there are many ways in which you can protect yourself and be sure your holiday home is genuine. See our blog on how to keep yourself safe here.
