Supplement Option

What do you think if Booking.com can help hotel sell supplement (airport transfer, F&B, Spa, etc.) after or during guest make booking on website?

I'm guessing you'd plan to put the BDC commission rate on top of the standard charge, then you stand the risk of guests thinking you're expensive for such things once they know the of the land after arrival.

Could lead to poor reviews.

That's going to be hard for them to implement.

Much easier, and more profitable to offer these things through your own website.

Are you also a host or only web design?

Hi fluff,

I've hosted 100 guests on AirBnB in my guesthouse this year, but it's more of a side thing. Webdesign is my main gig.

Just signed up for booking.com today.

EDIT: Oh, I almost forgot. I also ran a company in 2015 for a while in Edinburgh managing people's apartments and finding them guests. Had a £1000/night apartment for a while for which I received 20% commission.

Good to know. We also used to do holiday house management as a sideline.

I hope that the 1000GBP/Night apartment was truly amazing!

@Fluff,

It was a beauty.

Central Edinburgh, next to the university and with a view of the castle and a nearby park.

The outside looked like an old English mansion, but inside it was modern and cosy. I never understood UK's obsession with indoor carpets, but this place had stairs so soft I could've slept on them...

Oh I miss carpets! Practical in the UK but they would be a nightmare in hot n dusty climes or tropical countries, hence their absence in favour of tiles or wood/wood effect.

I prefer wooden floors with nice rugs. So much easier to keep clean.
