Did you know...

  …that 62% of all reservations made on OTAs (Online Travel Agencies) such as Pricleine.Com, Booking.com, Expedia come from users that review a hotel’s website before making their reservation? This means that the average hotel has the potential of generating at least 62% (more with S.E.O., affiliate & loyalty programs) of its online reservations, commission free using just its website and an online reservation system like WebReservationsDirect.Com.

  WebReservationsDirect.Com is commission free online reservation system while OTAs charge between 15% - 30% commissions. Clearly, it is in a hotel’s best interest to convert as many of its indirect OTA sales to direct sales using WebReservationsDirect.Com. We encourage you to visit the Demo Hotel webpage to view a demonstration of how our service can integrates into a hotel's website.

  As most hoteliers are aware, there is the issue of Rate Parity which hinders hotels from taking advantage of the booking engines they currently use with their website. WebReservationsDirect.Com has the solution.

Beating ‘Rate Parity’

  OTAs provide a valuable service to the hotel and accommodation industry, especially during low season. However, this service comes at a significant expense (a 20% commission which could easily translate into +40% of net profit) and with the added restriction of Rate Parity.

  Rate Parity is commonly thought of as a broad restriction that prevents a hotel from selling rooms at lower rate than that published with the OTA. In truth, Rate Parity has a much narrower definition and only applies to the “published rates” for a specific room on a given night with identical restrictions. However, rooms are not all identical. Some rooms are on a higher floor, have a better view, have been recently renovated, etc. Clearly, there is a difference between a ‘Standard’ and ‘Deluxe’ double room.


The fact that a hotel is not required to list all of its room types with an OTA makes it possible to list a “Deluxe Double” with an OTA at a higher nightly rate and list “Standard Double” rooms at a lower rate on WebReservationsDirect.Com, commission free. By implementing this strategy, not only can a hotel save on paying 3rd party OTA commissions, but also to upgrade a guest to a “Deluxe Double” if availability permits.

  WebReservationsDirect.Com provides significant added value with its “Room-Packages”. Keep in mind, guests who visit a hotel’s website are looking for value and not necessarily lower rates. For example, if a hotel lists a double room on an OTA for $150 per night and pays a 15% commission, that amounts to $45 in commissions for a 2 night stay booked through the OTA. WebReservationsDirect.Com’s “Room-Packages” allows the hotel to sell the identical room for $155 per night and provide the guest with a $25 gift certificate for the hotel restaurant.

2 Nights Stay
2 Nights Stay
Revenue: $310.00 Revenue: $300.00
Transaction Fee: 15% Commission: $45.00
Gift Certificate: $25.00    
Net Revenue: $279.01 Net Revenue: $255.00

Not only does the guest save $25, the hotel increase its revenue, the guest have the incentive to dine at the hotel (and spend more than $25 on dinner for two), but it does not violate Rate Parity as the room listed on WebReservationsDirect.Com is $5 more per night than what is listed on the OTA.
