STAAH MAX Enhancement - Booking.com Opportunities - High Demand Date


We are happy to announce the Booking.Com High Demand Date ‘Opportunity’ is now available in MAX2.


What is High Demand Date opportunity and how is it useful?


This feature highlights upcoming popular stay dates (based on guests’ searches on Booking.com’s platform), alongside your most popular rooms.  Properties are alerted when they no longer have inventory available on Booking.com for popular dates.


Benefits for properties?

 

By ensuring visibility on dates that guests are most interested in, HDD opportunity will enable property to:

  1. Optimise inventory to ensure they capture upcoming demand
  2. Be present in the most relevant search results on Booking.com
  3. Improve ranking on Booking.com by getting more HDD bookings over time
  4. See rooms that are most popular.

What has STAAH done?

The integration will pull in HDD information for the next 30 days so property can view and action accordingly via channel manager. 




High demand dates are visible in MAX extranet calendar. HDD flag visible only if there are HDD date(s).
