Understanding Country Rates

Country Rates can help you unlock domestic and international demand by offering great prices to travelers in the countries you specifically want to target. You can boost bookings by customizing the discounts you offer to specific markets such as the country where your property’s located, other individual countries, entire regions, or the whole world.

Adding Country Rates is a proactive step that you can take as part of your pricing strategy to increase your property’s occupancy. You’ll strengthen your pricing position by offering a discount only to potential guests in the countries you need a boost in. If things change, you can manage your Country Rates anytime.

You can offer any discount amount of 5% or above. We’ll only display this discount to people using our platform in the countries or regions you want to target. Country Rates are active throughout the year, but you can select up to 30 blocked dates when they don’t apply.

Country Rates apply to all your rooms and Rate Plans. The Country Rate discount stacks on top of Genius discounts and any other promotions you’ve set up, except for Mobile Rates and Limited-time Deals.

To find out more about Country Rates, take a look at this Solutions page.

Depending on the country your property is based in, this feature may not be available due to legal or commercial restrictions. We’re working to roll out Country Rates to all countries as soon as possible.
