Expedia is the leading OTA in the U.S., claiming 20% of the market share in 2017. The Expedia integration creates a direct pipeline between RoomKeyPMS and guests looking for hotels. The two-way integration automatically sends rates, restrictions and inventory to Expedia so that the information is updated without relying on a third party platform. Reservations are then sent directly from Expedia to RoomKeyPMS.
The Expedia integration makes it simple and seamless for hotels to leverage a leading OTA. It’s no longer necessary to update rates and inventory manually, and hotels avoid the commissions and processing fees charged by third parties. This ensures that OTAs are always an opportunity and never an obstacle.
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
