WHY TO WORK WITH AN AGENCY, WHEN I CAN DO IT MYSELF? (10 reasons)
Knowledge, expertise, marketing
Promotion of high quality holiday houses and villas which has taken a great deal of effort, time and resources, is certainly advisable to be left to the experts. As much as the business of promoting and renting accommodation may seem simple and romantic at first glance, it is not just that. Especially not in the last ten years.
Rental has turned into a serious business, with constant changes and innovations in the market, very high competition and a growing number of new rental properties. Only years of experience, continuous professional development and huge promotion investment can guarantee you a high quality of occupancy. Don't let the stories from the streets and tips from your neighbour who is "full all year-round," ruin your hard-labour investment.
If you consider renting your property as a more serious source of income and if you count on a return of your investment, the time you will spend on promoting and renting business of your property will typically exceed the average full time working day. All this with 24/7 availability and the need for quick or immediate reactions and responses in many situations.
Travel agency staff are available to guests and partners 24/7 and will resolve any requests and problems quickly and efficiently. During this time, you can dedicate yourself to many of your numerous obligations.
Misconception about own websites
Often, renters invest heavily and put their hopes in their own websites, and thereby fall for the promise of the first places on the search engines, numerous direct bookings, and websites made in a day or two.
All these sites are only a grain of sand on a sandy beach.
Without major investments, a team of experts behind one project and systematic work on a daily basis, there are no results. Everyone claiming otherwise is simply deceiving you and looking solely for quick and easy profits.
Large number of external partners and channel manager
With its own solutions and promotion, large foreign agencies and portals have become an inevitable part of this business. Although it is not rewarding to rely exclusively on them, they are certainly necessary as partners for joint action in the market and increasing business results.
A large number of partners, portals and agencies require a lot of time and work, with constant correspondence, current updates and frequent changes in terms and conditions of business. Without a well-trained team and superior software solutions, it is impossible to follow this kind of business.
Working alone or with the agency, it is impossible to avoid paying commissions to successfully reserved dates. From a renter's financial point of view, it is much more cost effective to give this commission to one single agency that then processes and settles all other channels, than to pay a much larger amount of money to foreign agents with additional fees and taxes.
In addition to having a unique commission with no additional or hidden costs and taxes, this commission includes complete business and support, while most web portals charge huge commission which is directed only to the action of potential finding of guests.
The rental property has been completed and prices, dates and restrictions should be set so that occupancy is maximized with the highest possible prices that can be achieved in the market. This is a problem that even the most experienced renters are reluctant to deal with.
To properly set the above values it takes a lot of knowledge, experience and calculating. In addition, one should constantly be prepared to react if the market indicates the need to change any parameter.
Only a small mistake in setting the calendar and pricing may result in a fiasco. This is a responsibility that is not easy to take.
Personal contact, doing business with confidence and long-term goals
Owners who themselves are trying to do the agency's part of the job often complain about the lack of business communication to other parties and are regularly faced with bad cooperation agreements that aim solely for quick and easy profit. All the sweet-talk usually disappears after the contract is signed, and cooperation turns into one-sided exploitation.
When dealing with a quality agency, contact persons are always available, cooperation is to the mutual satisfaction, and the agency business goals must be long-term. Making a profit to the owner should be a priority.
Good guests prefer (good) agencies
The vast majority of guests looking for quality holiday homes will leave their reservation exclusively to the agency. Guests love security, they like to know who does their payment process, will they be greeted by the property owner of the accommodation they have booked and that fits the photos they were shown, together with all descriptions and information. Guests like to know that they have a team at their disposal that they can contact at any time and who will help them professionally at any time and with any problem. Also, guests are aware that the price of accommodation through a local agency will be the lowest possible.
Unfortunately, guests looking for workarounds, insisting on lower prices on direct inquiries, who are extorting and recklessly bargaining, are often guests who then make troubles to the renters (avoiding payments, not showing up, writing bad reviews and comments,…).
Security, payment, card companies, banks, cancellations, booking changes…
Much of the worries and problems of renters are due to billing and all related work.
Down payments should be enabled for guests to carry out by credit cards and popular online services, and ofcourse with bank payments and other conservative methods. In doing so, the costs of collecting the down payments are very often neglected initially and they take a serious percentage of earnings. Agencies bear all these costs themselves.
Problems with cancellations and booking changes, refunds, remaining balance payments, billing or or authorization of security deposits, etc. are things that keep renters awake during night.
Agencies do all these activities in a casual, fast, simple and professional way using all the solutions that guests need.
Paperwork, legal and tax obligations, bills
Every business carries its share of paperwork and the burden of bureaucracy. Even renting is not immune to it.
To keep your business pure and worry-free, the recommendation is to let the agency keep the necessary bills and books, keep track of legal obligations, and calculate all billing and payments. Especially if you do business through a company. Among other things, these include: bills, down payment bills, offers, reservation confirmations, insurance, croatian and foreign currency transactions, price lists, contracts, registrations, guest books, account books, membership calculation, reports and many others that are even impossible to list.

This enables us to have very high efficiency (correspondence, booking progress, offers, confirmations) and eliminate the possibility of any error (calendars, double bookings, prices, calculations, ...).
