Guest Insights

Get to know your guests better in advance so you can tailor a stay just for them.

Do your guests like to try local dishes when they travel? What did they like most about their previous trips? Any dietary requirements you should know about? Finding out details like this ahead of time can help you cater to your guests’ needs and create an unforgettable stay.

Now it’s easy to get to know your Booking.com guests before they even check in. Opting in to Guest Insights lets you find out a little more about your upcoming guests’ preferences. You can then use these insights to deliver even better guest experiences. This should have a ripple effect on your business – think even better guest reviews and repeat guests.

The best part? You can use this extra service totally free of charge. It’s exclusively for partners with consistently high review and reply scores – those who go the extra mile to provide memorable experiences for their guests.

How Guest Insights works

  

Once you opt in, your guests will see a questionnaire about their preferences. This appears on the confirmation page after they’ve finished booking their stay with you.
We’ll instantly provide you with any information they share via email, extranet and the Pulse app.
If you work with a Connectivity Partner, soon you’ll also see this information alongside the reservation details in your channel manager and property management systems.
You can collect insights on the five topics above. You can also choose to opt out of any of these categories – and of course, you’re free to change your preferences at any time.
