There's been a lot of asking both on the part of apartments' owners and travelers dealing with our vacation rental websites on how exactly discounts work and how to be eligible.
As for all things human, events and initiatives stratified across years (just over 15 now) gets piled up one on top of the other and there comes a day when you finally, albeit belatedly, feel that urge of getting it together and restore the illusion of order. Ok, this is the day and I'll try and give it a final shot.
Discounts should not be confused with Promotions which are activated by the owners when setting up their apartment listings' prices, ie last minute, long stay, etc and they cumulate on top of it. Discounts though, will not cumulate on top of one another and the highest one you can get is equivalent to 10% off.
Here follow a step by step road map to get you the best discount
'Like' Cities Reference Facebook page. There is no point filling in the discount coupon code if you're not a Cities Reference 'fan' because you're not going to get any discount without it.
Have a notion of what the discounts are and beware that
- you are not able to cumulate discounts on top of one another
- discounts are valid on all apartments besides those showing listing codes that start with letters instead of numbers (ie: AA, RU, BL, etc)
Try2: this is a 10 euro flat discount if you tried booking a On Request apartment that declined your booking request
Repeat client: it's a 5% discount to all repeat clients, just input you previous booking code to qualify.
Owners' discount: it's a 5% discount to all apartment owners listing their apartment with us. Just input your apartment's listing number when booking.
FB5%: this is a 5% discount on the total posted, all you have to do is be a Cities Reference fan on our Facebook page and stay put to qualify. For those of you who appreciate clarity, if you go on just the time of the booking and off when the booking is over you won't qualify for the discount.)
PO10%: this is a 10% discount and to qualify, on top of the above, you need to find an available Priority Owner's apartment. To see if an apartment is of a Priority Owner go to the apartment listing, click on 'Description', top left, beside 'Apartment' and Verified™ you will see it marked as 'Priority Owner'.
If you qualify to all the above all you have to do is input the appropriate code where it says 'Coupon Code' on step2 (final) of the booking process.
