We recently met with a hotel whose occupancy was comprised nearly 50% by OTA bookings. One out of every two guests was costing them at least 20% commission. Aside from the obvious hit to their RevPAR and issues maintaining a competitive ADR they were also missing out on building their most valuable asset: their guest history. Unfortunately, this property is not entirely unique. Far too many hotels and resorts rely on the OTAs for far too great of their occupancy. Even the properties succeeding with in-house bookings could benefit by chipping away at their OTA percentage. Here are five ways you can make an impact on your RevPar, reduce costs, grow your database, and improve guest satisfaction. Implement these and we guarantee you’ll find your OTA percentage drop while occupancy grows. Get the full story at Fuel
