Direct booking & saving money
Booking portals are useful and getting more and more popular as they help to save money and to have a good overview. However, big international booking websites have a great disadvantage: they require up to 30 % of commission your host must pay.
Our holiday portal, in fact, allows you to contact the hosts directly, without any costs for the traveller and the host. Use our enquiry for a non-binding request or contact the desired hotel via telephone. In each case, your enquiry directly goes to the host and can be answered quickly and correctly.
The amount you will pay for your holiday goes 100 % to the accommodation and thereby also to Lake Garda holiday region. Only this way, infrastructures can be expanded and quality will be improved.
The most important questions:
- Why should I make a direct booking?
With a direct booking via Garda-See.com, neither the host nor the traveller must pay any commissions. This way, the money can be invested in the accommodation, which in turn is a benefit for the guests.

No, on our portal and directly at the hosts, you will get attractive top offers that cannot be booked on international portals.
