Book Direct & Save Website Crashes After Record Number of UK Holidaymakers Register for a Savvy StayCation

The Proudly British Website for UK StayCations, Contractors & International Visitors Launched to massive demand with unprecedented new StayCation Registrations in 24hrs.

August 11, 2020 – Savvy Uk ‘StayCationers’ demand more value for less money, and demonstrate huge show of solidarity with Great British Businesses as leads the charge of Bounceback Britain.

The Co-founders of were happy yet unsurprised by the level of demand the website has been generating from businesses, contractors and StayCationers who understand that the large Online Travel Agents (OTA’s) such as Booking and Air BNB do not always offer the best value for money.

Alexander Bentley, Co-Founder of Book Direct and Save said, “People are starting to wake up to the fact that these OTA’s sometimes take up to and in excess of 15% of a booking fee which more often than not has to be reflected in higher prices for consumers.” There is simply no need for these middlemen when you can Book Direct and Save.

And it’s not just domestic tourism and international visitors getting stung; struggling UK businesses and Individual Contractors are looking for better value from long term bookings. Co-founder, Amanda Richards points to a number of growing Corporate Partnerships as evidence of this trend, “we are delighted to begin a new relationship with Great British Trades ( to be their sole booking engine for their entire UK Trades membership body. It is a huge win, and representative of a change in dynamics in the short-term accommodation sector.”

Boris Johnsons ‘Build Back Better’ is set to bring tens of thousands of contracts to highly skilled tradespeople and construction professionals, with many projects being away from a contractor’s home. These contractors are looking for value, a personal connection, security and comfort. Most of all they want to feel safe and valued, which is exactly what they get when booking directly with property owners rather than going through a faceless middleman from Silicon Valley.

One of the biggest contractors in the North East of England, John Davies aka The Leeds Plumber ( told us. “for me and the lads it’s not about looking for extra luxurious apartments. It’s about finding something secure, comfortable and with all the mod cons. We choose to book direct and save because it means we get a good deal from owners, and get a good personal relationship going. We look after the properties we stay in and the owners look after us. With more and more jobs coming in using is a win win situation all round for my business”

With over 1,000 UK properties listed on BookDirect&Save owners are charged a low flat fee per property and the platform encourages direct bookings and communication between property owners and clients. Property owners go above and beyond for direct clients with not only better value, but little touches like regular communications, future discounts, priority problem fixing and sometimes nice little extras in the rooms such as a bunch of flowers, some fresh local produce or some cold beers in the fridge.

Of course, both those listing their properties and the short-term renters have very different worries which is why all our property managers and bookers are fully ID verified. And as an added layer of security we only accept property listings that are currently on AirBnb, or another OTA platform that takes safety and security as seriously we do.
