At U-Stay we work with owners and managers of holiday accommodation looking for an affordable and practical ways to increase bookings to their venue.
Understandably, a lot of owners of holiday venues are not familiar with all the options available to advertise their venues and the costs involved, and as a result they can easily end up spending way more on marketing than they really should.
'NOT ALL DIRECTORIES OFFER THE SAME RETURN ON INVESTMENT'
There are a number of online (and offline) holiday directories out there, but they certainly don’t offer the same return on investment. A few websites charge a flat rate regardless of the number of booking you make. And there are even some directories that don’t charge anything and allow you to list for free, although these are seldom of any value. Most websites allow you to list at no cost but charge commissions for any bookings made through them, with commissions generally ranging from 15%-18% of the value of the bookings. This sounds like an attractive offer, but those commissions can make quite a difference to your bottom line. Consider the following: If you take bookings for R30000 over a single holiday period, your commissions at 15% would amount to R4500. Now if you made those same booking through a listing with us, it would have only cost you in the region of R145 for that month's listing or R1595 for the entire year!
'GUARANTEED RESULTS OR YOUR MONEY BACK'
At U-Stay we have chosen to charge a flat monthly fee regardless of how many inquiries you receive. This is invariably the most cost effective way to advertise provided you are getting those all important enquiries, and our website really does generate those enquiries!Which is why we offer all new listings an opportunity to test the website risk free for three months. If you are not happy with the results you get in those first three months, we will refund you your subscriptions in full. Yip, you heard correctly, if we cant generate inquiries for you, we don't expect you to pay for anything. Even after the three months are up, we don’t bind you to us in any way. You can cancel your listing at any stage without incurring any penalties.
