OurFernie announces Owner-Direct accommodation booking with 0% commission and no setup fees

February 07, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Fernie, BC, Canada - OurFernie is very pleased to announce the launch of their new "Owner-Direct" booking service. This service will allow Fernie accommodators to accept bookings and securely process credit card payments directly from their existing web sites, and without customers leaving their site.

Not only is OurFernie the first to provide this service in the Fernie marketplace, but it is being offered absolutely free! This means no booking fees will be charged to the accommodator or customer, and the service will be setup free of charge. The only cost to the accommodator
is a 3% credit card fee that will cover processing costs.

OurFernie is able to offer this fantastic deal because they have end-to-end control of the reservations process. OurFernie has developed the booking engine and has tightly integrated it with their backoffice systems, enabling operation with extremely low overhaeds. Unlike off-the-shelf booking engines, OurFernie can tailor theirs to meet accommodators needs. Tell them what you want and they'll prove it!

All properties participating in OurFernie's Owner-Direct booking service
will also be made available for booking on the OurFernie web site, where the standard booking commission of only 10% will apply. Booking through www.ourfernie.com has been available since the start of the 2006/07 winter season, and already has the widest selection of Fernie properties for rent anywhere.
