In an industry filled with global giants and OTAs (online travel agencies), it's become easy to overlook the incredible benefits of supporting local businesses, especially when it comes to planning your next getaway. We often fall into the trap of booking through large, faceless corporations without realizing the positive impact we can have on our communities by choosing to book direct with local providers.
We wanted to take this opportunity to share the reasons why booking directly with Simply Kimberley not only saves you a pretty penny, but helps strengthen the local economy of our beautiful mountain town.
1. Supporting the Local Economy
Perhaps the most compelling reason to book direct with Simply Kimberley is the positive impact you have on the local economy. When you choose to stay with Simply Kimberley, your money stays within the Kimberley community, supporting local residents and businesses. By contributing to the local economy, you're helping to preserve the unique charm and character of this beautiful area for future generations.
2. Cost-Effective Travel
Contrary to popular belief, booking directly with local providers can save you money! When you skip the middleman, you avoid the additional fees and commissions typically charged by OTAs (online travel agencies). Simply Kimberley offers competitive rates and promotions, ensuring you get the best value for your money. Plus, by booking direct, you have more flexibility to customize your package to suit your needs and budget. Take a look at the breakdown below - same nights, same head count, 3 price tags.
