The hotel industry is hugely competitive with everyone seemingly fighting for the same guests at the same time of year. Exposure is everything in this business and we know from experience that maximising advertising exposure is the only way to get business. If you want bookings, you have to market through the key players. The problem is, how to manage your hotels availability without having to log into the dreaded extranets of each partner with that fiddly calendar / pricing grid for each room or room type. 

We've all been there, it's a major pain! Well, good news, it doesn't have to be this way! With the advent of new drag and drop channel management tools we can help you easily implement and manage the availability of a dozen key OTA channel partners from just one, easy to use calendar complete with a built-in guest management system. It's not rocket science and its not expensive.

We live and work in Torquay. How many Torquay hotels, B&B's, guest houses and self-catering apartments do you think there are in Toquay? Perhaps 300, 400, more? At least 300 we suspect but do you know how many are listed on Booking.com, the worlds number 1 booking site? Just 179 hotels and the majority of these are the big boys! That means that there are potentially 100's of other accommodation businesses bleeding bookings to their competitors. Are you one of them?

The beauty of marketing through Booking.com, Expedia etc is that it's free up until the point of sale. They work on a commission model. No sales, no commission. You only pay for what you receive. That means you need to be on these portals and on them now. Well, we can help. We can work with you to get you online, through any number of ways, and to manage the availability of your business with ease. One interface, all connected to the OTA's you want to advertise through. And it won't cost the earth.  

For a no-risk, free evaulation of where you could be in 3 months, call David at our Torquay office on 01803 297 297. We promise you'll be amazed at how simple and cost effective our solutions are.
