Booking.com and Ctrip
We are a BDC partner, and receive bookings from Ctrip through BDC (although the guests are usually unaware of this, only that they have booked through Ctrip. We can sign up with Ctrip in our own right, but the commission is greater. I would be interested to know if any hoteliers have found an advantage with joining Ctrip separately. We do receive a certain number of Chinese guests, from mainland China, Hong Kong and Singapore, and all are FITs.
I would also be interested to hear of any particular requirements that you have noted that Chinese guests have.
