Combining discounts

To help you build a successful pricing strategy and maximize occupancy, we offer a Pricing Solutions Portfolio with various pricing products. The different pricing products are listed below.

  • Foundations – your rate plans and rate plan customizations
  • Proactive productsGenius program, Preferred Partner Program, Targeted rates, and Campaign deals
  • Reactive products – Portfolio deals and Deep deals

Discounts can be combined to guarantee the best possible price and to generate more bookings for partners like you. Combined discounts can also deliver great results for conversion and occupancy. See example below:


However, there are restrictions on combining pricing products:

  • Products in the same category can’t be combined.
  • You can combine Genius with different Genius sub-products. However, as a pricing product itself, Genius combines with others regardless of the Genius offer you’ve set up.
  • The Preferred Partner Program is a pricing product that doesn’t change traveler-facing promotions or discounts. This means it can’t be combined with other pricing products.

Each of our pricing products is designed to target a unique audience, which means not all potential guests will see every discount every time. When potential guests see multiple discounts that can be combined, we refer to it as audience overlap. If a potential guest is in overlapping audiences where discount deals can’t be combined, they’ll fall into the audience offering the highest discount. See example of audience overlap:
