Promotions on Hotel/Property

Hello,

I would like to know that what is the best way to provide promotions? And how other OTAs are doing it?

Is it for per night or for the whole stay?

 

Thanks!!

Hi

 

Typically its a discount per night, under the Promotions menu there are many scenario options.

 

Members Only , Secret Deals

Public Deals

Early Bookers

Can set minimum nights to book for promotion to be available etc.

 

 

 

 

 


Kind Regards

You have to experiment a little to find what suits you better...

Barry, lately very few give a thumb up....

Last year I posted a thread about politeness and thumbs up....many Partners believe that we are the support team and that this is our job...

I guess its hard to understand what Contribution means!!!

Cheers!!!

Be careful with too many discounts.  Few times I got so cheap bookings and I thought it must be some kind of mistake. But promotions piled on top of each other and created close to 50% off.  Genius 10%, cell phone booking 10%, last min booking 10% and if you sign for other 20% promotion it could be lots of booking for very little money. Most important, not so good people will arrive. I notice that more expensive listings get a better guests. 

I cancelled most of promotions. Hope it helps to be careful.

Best Guests to All, Marita

Indeed I too learned that lesson early on.

 

Microsoft excel helped me mapp out all the combinations of my rate plans and promotions, to see the real payout value per deal, which then lead to price increases,  and clever combination of rate type versus duration minimum booked.

 

 

I know expedia give option to feature in flight & hotel packages.

 

Have not seen it on bdc yet.

 

But I did notice bdc site for flight plus hotel diverts you to last minute.com
