How does your business benefit from a mobile rate?
Attract more bookings
Offering a mobile rate drives more potential guests to your property page.
Stand out in searches
A special badge will appear next to your property in search results and on your property page.
Better price, better reviews, better ranking
Two-thirds of mobile bookings are made by millennials – who write more reviews than any other traveller segment. Attracting these bookers can positively impact your overall ranking on Booking.com.
Maximise app and mobile web users
When you offer a mobile rate, you can choose to target only iOS/Android app users, but you also have the option of including bookers who use the mobile web browser on their phone instead of the app. By offering both, you’ll reach a much larger audience:
- A bigger target: making your offer visible to Chrome, Safari and other mobile browsers can help you reach 30% more phone users
- Brand-new bookers: first-time bookers use a mobile web browser to book 7 times more often than those who choose to download the app
- Repeat bookers: repeat bookers gravitate to the convenience of booking within the downloadable app
By giving app and mobile web viewers the option to see your mobile rate, you’ll reach new customers looking for their first great deal, as well as loyal bookers who come back time and time again. If you change your mind later, you can change this option at any time.
How mobile rates work
Mobile rates are only visible to guests on mobile devices
A minimum 10% discount is recommended
Mobile rates apply to all of your rooms and rate plans. The discount combines with discounts for the Genius programme, as well as any other promotions you’ve set up. However, it doesn’t add on to a Country rate or Limited Time Deal.
You can set up 30 blackout days per calendar year.
