Fair Booking Cornwall
What is the Fair Booking Cornwall initiative?
In a nutshell, this scheme encourages direct bookings to the accommodation providers of Cornwall.
This means businesses pay less in commission to online travel agents (OTA's) by rewarding the visitor who books direct by offering the best deal, ie, the best room at the best price and, for instance, a bottle of wine or cream tea, together with a donation to a local good cause, which benefits locals and visitors alike.
IT'S A WIN - WIN - WIN ....
