Net Rates and Seamless OTA Channel Management

The programs below can be managed seamlessly through any of the BookingCenter Management Tools, allowing control of rate and room allocation delivered to the specific program you choose. These Online Travel Agent (OTAs) programs have delivered up to 2/3 of the monthly revenue to some of our customers, and by using them in tandem with a strategic, direct marketing campaign, a property can build long-lasting direct guest relationships. The goal: get the customer through an OTA and have them come back directly for their follow up bookings. If used well, they are a good tool for building a loyal Guest network.

Below is a list of OTAs (over 200) we work to seamlessly deliver the integration you expect from BookingCenter. We can price seamless connection to OTAs into a fixed monthly price for unlimited bookings, or a 'per transaction' fee. Contact us for pricing that meets your desired mix of Channels.
