Maximize ROI using direct booking
Tips and strategies for attracting more business travellers for corporate rentals with direct bookings
Earlier, a quick way to get bookings is to rely on third-party booking side, where corporate rentals providers & managers don’t have to involve in marketing the properties. Despite the benefits of OTA booking, corporate housing providers are now giving a second thought and considering direct booking.
One of the significant turnarounds came due to Covid infestation. Drop in demand, shrinking profits, over saturation of even the new property management market – have contributed to looking out for allied booking channels –where they would have more money and have more control over inventory booking and guest communication.
In addition, OTA’s have lately increased the commission and shrunk the corporate rentals revenue significantly. Providers also struggled to build strong relationships with guests as OTA’s were in front and limited their interaction with guests. Be it cancellation policies, discount offers, or promoting your fully furnished rentals properties, OTA offers limited control over these platforms.
Providers now realize the opportunity to make more money when guest books are direct.
