Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.

Save Big with our "15% Commission Back" on $elect Stays properties

Why?

International Booking companies are hijacking local tourism. This they do through imposing heavy commissions of 15% or more. This commission does not find it's way into our economy. It leaves our shores - never to be seen again. So, we have partnered with properties that are as passionate as we are about growing our local tourism. It starts with keeping as much of our tourism money in South Africa!

How?

Under the name $elect Stays, a group of properties have decided to give YOU the 15% commission instead! This is a real saving! Not in "travel-buks" or "fly-points" or such - but in real money that you can feel in your pocket!

How does it work?

  1. You fill in your details below and generate a membership number
  2. Find a $elect Stays property on any of the 60+ Stays sites
  3. Send an enquiry (using your membership number)
  4. Property responds offering you the 15% discount on their published rate
  5. Tell all your friends :-)
It's easy. No fuss. No set up fee. No monthly fee. Because membership is FREE for life!

These $elect Stays properties have made a committment, so let's support them, and spread the good news.
