How to join the Genius programme

To join Genius, your property needs to meet three eligibility criteria:

  1. It’s open and bookable on our platform
  2. It’s received at least three guest reviews
  3. It has a review score of at least 7.5 (we may make an exception if the average review score in your area/city is lower than 7.5 and your property’s review score is above that average)

If you meet these criteria, you can sign up to Genius by clicking on Opportunities in the extranet and then selecting Genius partner programme.

When you join the programme, the 10% Genius discount is automatically applied to your least expensive and most popular room type or unit. If your least expensive room is also your best-selling room, the discount will only apply to that one.

  1. Log in to the extranet
  2. Click on Opportunities and then select Genius partner programme
