The Best Rates
Who wants to pay more than they have to? You won’t find Fripp Island Resort rates lower anywhere than on our website. Even better, when you join our mailing list, you’ll get notice of sales and promotions. You’ll save time AND money when you book direct with us.
No Hidden Fees
No annoying “traveler fees” or third-party site markups when you book direct with us. All taxes and resort fees are fully disclosed and included in your booking. Sites like AirBnB or VRBO may seem like good deals, but they can charge outrageous service fees.
  • First things first, what is this “service fee”?
    • Each Online Travel Agency (OTA) describes it a little differently, but the fee is similar. The “service fee” is needed by the OTA to help contribute to funding their own operational costs.
  • How much is the “service fee”?
    • Fees vary based on the OTA, but generally it is a percentage based on your total reservation amount.  While none of the sites outright tell you how much their fees are, industry wide they very from 4% to 9% with most guests paying around 9%.
  • Who collects the “service fee”?
    • These fees go directly to the OTA, not the homeowner or property management company. Knowing this, it is important to remember  that should you need to cancel your reservation, the owner or property manager is unable to refund this fee.
  • So how can I not pay a “service fee”?
    • The best answer is to BOOK DIRECT. If you have seen a house on one of the sites that you’re interested in, it could be as simple as searching the internet for the address and you’ll find that home listed with a property manager. Book Direct with that property manager.
