Genius Week - BEWARE!

I had an email from Booking.com saying they're doing something with the Genius thing.

Existing-Genius people (our potential guests) get upgraded to Genius level 2. All other Booking.com users (potential guests) get the Genius discounts automatically.

We are included automatically, so therefore we'll be giving everyone a discount and we'll earn less, unless we opt out ....

Hi,

Is this only applicable if you are a property who has joined the genius program or also for properties not part of the genius program?

 

Regards,

Maarten

The information provided by Booking.com is vague - and knowing how Booking.com operate, anything could happen - keep an eye on it!

I saw this and joined it  but I also made a point of adjusting rates.

I did up a spreadsheet with several combinations to see the stacked discounts, commission, bank transfer fee and then whats left to be paid out.

That way there would be no surprises.
