Web Connection is an approved premium partner with TripAdvisor giving independent hotels the opportunity to get instant bookings from the world’s largest travel website.
TripAdvisor is one of the most widely used and trusted travel websites in the world that recorded 280 million unique users in 2011. With TripConnect Instant Bookings from TripAdvisor independent hotels have the opportunity to tap into this huge audience and get instant direct bookings.
ChannelRooms, the cloud based channel manager by Web Connection, is a trusted connectivity partner enabling hotels to upload their rates and availability onto TripAdvisor with ease. The hotel’s live rates are displayed alongside the most competitive online travel agents giving visitors the opportunity to book direct with no middlemen involved.
TripAdvisor works on a “Pay for Stays” concept charging commission for bookings so there are no upfront costs or long-term commitments. There are two commission plans to choose from – 15% or 12%. The different commission levels relate to the amount of time your hotel rates are on display, giving your hotel higher opportunity to be booked with a higher commission rate.
Kevin Rautenbach, business development director at Web Connection comments: “There is no doubt that marketing your hotel through TripAdvisor has great benefits. Travellers trust the site and independent hotels that receive the TripAdvisor bookings are able to own the guest experience from the offset.
