Random question of the day. Can we pre-charge a guest prior to check in? We have a problem with no shows where the credit card declines.

Hi Every one, how goes...

I got this Opportunity From Booking.com, Great Booking.com look after us, BUT.........

"

Activate a July Deal to catch up with last year

Peak travel season is here and demand is high. Unfortunately, you are pacing behind in bookings compared with last year. To catch up try a July Deal.

Offer a 15% minimum discount on your most popular rooms all month for best results.

We will promote your deal worldwide with a special tag on our site, dedicated email campaigns and the deal price on public channels..

Its ok, I like to make a Dear. But at the moment Im fully Booked almost every Day in July..Few days left in June,

Ok, If I give 15% discount, and 15% discount to Genius Booker, and 15% to Booking.com, What left to me for Room rent, Cleaning, Iron, early up to Prepare Continental Breakfast, shopping, baking bread for Breakfast, I just need a bit to drive my Car to shopping for all the Wonderful People there book with me...

Now I really look forward to a comment from YOU.......

Anybody ever got a Discount from Booking.com?

Have a Great Day all my fellow friend

You are right, I want to sell quality, not discount. Cheap room are not me, my price is for good quality, good food, Continental, homemade breakfast, lots of work, but no discount.

A little note:

I beed doing this in almost 17 years, in my home, and I love it.

When we start we had a low price, a big sign on the street, and when I say a car from abroad or another city, I put a card in the front windows.. When I think back, it was very different?

To day we have our Booking on the net, People arrive with great help from GPS, and few pêople call.

But to day our room are much better quality, and our price higher.

I can see a different kind of people arriving, people who like good quality, fun, good Wine, and excellent dinner, this people like to pay , pay for what they expect from me.

Of course many people know me now, but almost all visitor are people who like good quality, it is what they get here, and I get paid a better price..Do not worry, discount are not always help you to profit,

Good luck

Ohhhhhh Great... If I have to give 40% and get more booking to my self, AND COMMISION to Booking.com, HOW MUCH CONTRIBUTIONS are Booking.com give??

The Answer is?? N O T H I N G

Sorry, I don't know anybody there can give 40% and 10% to Genius Booker, 15% to Booking.com ?
