STAAH Instant Enhancement – Mobile Rates on Booking.com

STAAH Instant Enhancement – Mobile Rates on Booking.com

 

**NEW** Mobile Rates On booking.com

STAAH is pleased to announce we have added another discount type which can be managed via OTA promotion module. This means, you can now manage mobile rates on booking.com via Instant extranet. 

Why?

√ Attract more bookings – Offering a mobile rate drives more potential guests to your property page

√ Stand out in searches – A special badge will appear next to your property in search results and on your property page (On booking.com customer site)

Examples of badge:

  

√ Better price, better reviews, better ranking – Two- thirds of mobile bookings are made by millennials, who write more reviews than any other traveller group. Attracting them can positively impact your overall ranking on booking.com

 

How mobile rates work on Booking.com?

  • Mobile rates are only visible to guests using the Booking.com app or mobile browsers.

  • minimum discount of at least 10% 

  • Mobile rates apply to all your rooms and rate plans. The discount stacks on top of Genius discounts as well as any other promotions you’ve set up. However, it doesn’t get added to Country Rates or Deal of the Day.

  • You can pick 30 days each calendar year to deactivate mobile rates.

Activate mobile rate and offer on booking.com to tap into this valuable and expanding traveller segment. With a few easy clicks, you are all set to go
