STAAH MAX - Manage OTA Promotion - How to manage GEO Rates (Country Rates) for Booking.com?

This feature supports creating and managing country rates to offer via Booking.com from STAAH MAX extranet.



Increase Booking.com bookings by targeting guests from specific regions.

Global travel is on the rise, and more international guests also means more opportunities for your property - whether you want to tap into new markets, attract guests from specific countries, or grow your revenue by offering targeted discounts.  

Country rates are targeted discounts that you can offer to guests from your markets of choice. They can help you fill your available rooms and tide you over during low season, as peak travel times differ for each market. Plus, they can help you tap into completely new markets, too.

Please note that country rates are not available in certain countries due to legal or commercial restrictions (Determined by Booking.com)
