Preferred partner program

We are eligible for Preferred partner program with booking.com , do you recommend to join the program during summer or better to wait till September as business is slow anyway during summer and we will end paying more commission. is the program increase the volume and conversion and worth paying 20% commission. 

 

Please advsie 

 

Thanks

Personally I got it activated i dont get more bookings and had to now pay 20 % instead of 15 % to bookings com hence had to increase my price. not happy about it but genius program was even worth you pay as preferred partner 20%plus guest if he is genius pays 10%less so it was terrible . now canceled genius option and didnt subscribe to preferred partner with any other of my properties. Thats my personal opinion maybe there is somebody happy with it :) I think its the way booking charges you more and makes you feel special for it :)

I activated our preferred partner sometime back and got good results initially. booking.com pushed us up in ranking and that got us sales. But after a few months, they started to drop us back by giving silly excuses and now, it looks like it does not matter whether we are preferred or not.

booking.com's motto is always about making money for themselves, never for us.
