Have you ever thought about booking direct to save money, but just couldn’t get over your safety concerns? RentKentuckyCabins.com could be your solution.
We offer the safest way to book direct because we build every listing. Unlike middleman booking sites, we know our rental listings are legit because we research each property in order to build the listings on our site. Additionally, our guests have the added option of speaking to the owners or property managers before booking for extra convenience and security. This means that our guests can can trust that their booking will be handled professionally and that there will be no issues or surprises.
We do the homework so you don’t have to, protecting your trip before it even begins.
When booking vacation rentals, you have two options. You can book directly with homeowners and local management companies, or you can go through a third-party site like Airbnb, TripAdviser.com and Booking.com and pay more. While the latter is certainly a common route, experienced travelers are likely to avoid it.
Here are five reasons travelers ditch the big online travel agencies and book direct instead.
1. Best Price Guaranteed
Third-party booking sites add a high percentage of service fees to the reservation total. A service fee of 20 percent on a $1500 week stay is 300 bucks; money that is better spent on a nice meal and a 2-hr. pontoon boat rental, or shopping in the town you’re staying in.
2. No Surprises
When you book direct, there are no surprises—hidden fees or otherwise. (You can rest easy knowing your personal information will not be sucked up into the wide world of data mining and aggressive targeted marketing.)
3. More Flexibility
We’ve all experienced minor bumps in our travel plans that forced us to modify our trips. Unfortunately, most booking sites are not understanding. The real people interacting with you when you book direct offer tailored pre- and post-stay communication to ensure you still have a great Kentucky vacation.
4. Exclusive Options
Did you know that many of the best vacation rentals are not listed on the major sites? Listing on a major site costs money that many homeowners do not want or need to spend. Don’t miss out on many Cumberland Lake hidden gems!
5. Better Customer Service
Do you have any questions about the property or the area that aren’t already addressed on the website? When you book direct, you get personalized answers and genuine human interaction. No one can give you better trip tips than a local.
Bottom line: For the best homes and the best experiences, #BookDirect.

Introducing our 7th state-specific, vacation rental website RentKentuckyCabins.com! New to Kentucky, but not new to the vacation rental industry. In fact, we've been a pioneer in the #BookDirect movement by helping vacation rental owners and local property managers get more DIRECT bookings since 2009. What is a DIRECT booking? Renters book directly with our listing members, not through us. This allows renters to skip the traveler fees found on every middleman booking site.
Our mission is to give vacationers a clear path to inquire, plan and book directly with rental owners and property managers who are also the best local tour guides.
