Booking.com is the second leading OTA in the U.S., holding 13% of the market share in 2017. A presence on this platform is important for a hotel’s revenue potential, as it drastically increases their market exposure. By integrating directly with Booking.com, RoomKeyPMS ensures details about a reservation made on this platform are immediately shared with the hotel, saving hoteliers time, avoiding guest information lapses and allowing hotels to connect with a major segment of travellers. Similarly, hoteliers can easily and automatically send updates about rates, availability and reservation restrictions to this prominent OTA.
This direct integration avoids any third party involvement, thereby eliminating commission and processing fees.
Benefits hoteliers can expect:
- Increase the hotel’s exposure in the market, which in turn will increase the hotel’s potential revenue opportunities
- Save time in updating rates and inventory manually
- Avoid commission or processing fees associated with using a third party channel manager
How it connects through RoomKeyPMS:
- Two-way interface: RoomKeyPMS sends rates, restrictions and inventory, while Booking.com sends reservations
