How can I set up deals and availability to attract early bookers?
Load availability for early bookers
A good way to attract more visitors to your property is to load availability far in advance. On Booking.com, you can show prices for up to 16 months ahead of booking. You’ll stand out to early-bird bookers and keep your page visible to those travellers keen to book their trip as early as possible. You can easily update your availability in our extranet
Offer discounted rates to early bookers
You can further attract early bookers by setting up an advance purchase rate. Simply log in to the extranet and click on the ‘Promotions’ tab to create a deal that appeals to customers booking far in advance.
You decide how early the guest can book and what discount you’d like to add to your existing rates.
1. Select ‘Add promotions’ and click on the ‘Early Booker’ icon.
2. Complete all necessary information and click ‘Review your promotion’ at the bottom of the page, to see an overview of your new deal.
3. To set it live, click on ‘Activate promotion’ and start receiving bookings!
