Partner Deal SCAM
Watch out for Partner Deal when booking.com sources a price from ....? and shows on your hotel page and forces it as Partner Deal. They do NOT honor the rates uploaded by the hotel and insist on selling at sometimes half the price. When you message them to stop this practice, they claim to "escalate to the concerning parties" and this escalation never ever ends! How ethical is that?
And of course it hurts the direct bookings of the hotel and creates a mess with rate parity with other OTAs.
