Reservation via Agoda

I received a reservation for my property from Booking.com and what I received in the reservation notice was an address and phone number in Bangkok. I emailed the guest at the Booking.com email provided requesting a local phone number so we could be in contact. I emailed 3 times but got no reply. Today was waiting to see if the guests would turn up - and they did, late in the afternoon. They had not received my emails nor did they get my phone number to let me know when they expected to arrive. I find this way of doing things extremely inefficient and frustrating, as I like to know when/if guests are actually going to turn up as we greet and give everyone a warm welcome. After I got the reservation, I contacted Booking.com chat to ask them to check if it was a genuine reservation, and the reply was that yes, and it was via their affiliate. I understood via Agoda, which the guests confirmed when they arrived well after my advertised check-in time. Is this unusual or is this how it is with Booking.com reservations via Agoda? I'd be glad to hear other hosts' opinions/experiences with this.

Hi Frances,

 

Yes the affiliate network and partner network, will have other websites, that your listing is propagated to.

 

Agoda is owned by Booking Holdings, the parent group company.

 

One option is to contact that website and seize control of the listing so as to control its availability calendar directly.

In theory that should work , not sure if they are auto linked and synced.
