Invest in the direct booking revolution with bookhotels.direct
With bookhotels.direct hotels, guesthouses, b&b’s, holiday rentals and other accommodation providers attract more direct bookings and become less dependent on the OTA’s.
How? By integrating with your booking engine or channel manager* we are able to pull rates and availability. With our specially developed software we track all traffic coming from our websites and when a booking is made we charge a 10% commission fee.
That is way lower as you are paying now, no? And you don’t need to do anything extra – you have a whole new sales channel for direct bookings without the work that comes with it. Just upkeep your booking engine or channel manager as you are used to, nothing else.
bookhotels.direct is in development (we aim to launch Q1, 2019), but we are already open for registration with properties that fit the charmhotelsweb and DNA Hotels sites’ profiles.
How it works:
A registration fee is charged:
- €140 for hotels with 29 rooms or less
- €195 for hotels with 30 rooms or more
This fee is placed in a threshold. Once your property is integrated with our platform, we won’t be charging commissions until the threshold is met. So basically you do not pay anything at all!
PLUS: Until integration with your booking engine or channel manager is realized (the risk is on us) you benefit from a free listing with no commissions on either charmhotelsweb or DNA Hotels and promotion on our social media. No links going to Booking.com or other OTA’s!
As soon as the platform launches you will also be able to sign-up for the www.bookhotels.direct website, a general booking website. It is going to be similar to Booking.com’s website with one BIG difference: all bookings are made direct. No middle man, direct customer relationship and maximum 10% commission. Also, from integration you can work on a commission basis with any website, blog or portal signing up to the platform – a measurable way of doing business with online publishers and social influencers.
*for properties who do not have an online booking engine in place on their website we offer our business listing for a fixed fee per year or we can introduce you to our partner’s booking engine.
