Why do hotels need an online booking website?

1- Commission-Free Direct Booking.

By having online direct booking deployed and integrated into your own website, it will save you from paying a significant cost (commission) of the reservations coming from Online Travel Agencies like Booking.com and Expedia. This can improve your top-line revenue per booking as bookings are commission-free.

2- Brand Image.

According to Triptease, over 60% of OTA bookers visit your hotel website prior to booking. Travelers want to know more about the property, location, rating, images and other things to reassure themselves on choosing the right property for their stay. This is where you need to represent your hotel’s brand image the way it should be. By not having an option to book directly on your website can hamper your brand image and may even result in losing these lookers as guests.

3- Guests Data.

Most of Online Travel Agencies have a restructuring policy where they share the guest’s data the same day or only one day prior to the visit. Plus, Booking.com does not provide hotels with guests’ emails. Thus, you can not have guest data ready with you to serve them with personalized offerings. Having data beforehand (like, in case of direct bookings) allows you to start sending them pre-arrival messages, extend your hospitality, and build a relationship to get them as repeat and loyal guests.

4- More and More Bookings.

Having diversified sources of bookings (OTAs, direct bookings, GDS, walk-in) is the idealistic thing a hotel wants. On one hand, OTAs make your hotel present where your customers are, whereas, social media and the hotel website turn ‘lookers into bookers’ and adds to the top-line revenue. In general, OTAs are the major source of bookings, but if your hotel website or your social media channels are able to attract visitors and get bookings, it’s always a Plus.

5- More Than 57% of The Travel Reservation is Done Online.

With a strong increase in this percentage every year, hotels can not ignore the vital importance of online reservations. That makes it quite clear that hotels need to focus on all online channels including OTAs, Social media, and your hotel website.

6- Less Cancellation Rate.

Studies (by mirai.com) show that Booking.com cancellation is 104% higher than the direct channels ones, while Expedia is 31%. The average cancellation on Booking.com is set around 39%, and Expedia is roughly 25%, while the cancellation on direct bookings is noted to be less than 19%. That shows having direct booking can to contributes significantly to increasing occupancy rates.
