Hello again, I would like to know if anyone has any dealings with iknow-com? They are offering a half price discount for 1 year to me, I found them on Freetobook. So far my bookings are about the same as last year, I was fully booked from March through October and into November. But one always wonders if one can get them in quicker by adding another agent.
At the moment I pay about £230 for advertising, including website expenses, so am getting quite good return from that.
What do you think?

Once they know about you you will get regular emails pushing their site. Probably because they first contacted me when my calendar was filled nicely and they said they would increase my bookings, I was sceptical and have not signed with them. They are quite expensive arenít they?

Yes it is quite expensive, £400 + vat for one year, £600 for 2 and £800 for 3, quite a hefty price, no commission, plus you have to pay the total within 6 months. The trouble is that they donít tell you the prices on the website.

We were with iknow - Hampshire - 1 booking I think we got, decided not worth the money & they do hassle you to renew.
