90 Day stays!!!!

A new development from BDC's evil sister Agoda.

They are now offering up to 90 day bookings. This is a very interesting development and one we embrace, especially for low season.

Will BDC be following suit?

Hi! fluff,

It would be very nice if BDC followed this new development.

Thanks for sharing and have a pleasant day.

Isle of Wight …

I have a separate "winter lets" service where people (househunters etc) can book for 2-4 months over the winter. They have to book and pay direct rather than through an OTA. We have different terms - we don't clean, we don't provide bedding etc - and it's a "long stay holiday let" so they can't claim tenant rights etc. I have one family of 4 in one place at the moment - they're due out 4th March - they've had 4 months and want longer, into the holiday season. Not gonna happen. Got people going in 4th March to take the furniture out for a refurb and they're taking the furniture regardless!

Exactly that Sr IoW. We do the same but see an advantage to offering that rate, plus a percentage  to cover the extra service and commission, on the OTA sites.

We're still clarifying with Agoda certain points but will most likely be participating in the promotion.
