Which is the right product to connect a Hotel to booking.com?
honestly – I’m getting a bit confused which of your products offers what and which one would be the right one for my needs.
A small hotel runs a WordPress site and want’s to add the booking.com reservation form to this site. E.g.: the availabilty, prices etc. are all solely managed at booking.com.
thanks for advice
Thanks for showing interest in our services. We do understand your concern. We offer solutions from Affiliates, Travel Agencies, Consolidators to Airlines. It totally depends on your tie-up with the supplier.
In the case of booking.com specifically, you have two choices
1. Affiliate Model – To use their search widget – (This solution is easy to get access from booking.com and is meant for affiliates.)
2. Partnership Model – To showcase their inventories on your site – (WebService is difficult to get from booking.com as they work with limited and potential partners only after some sort of commitments)
Customer is going to be redirected to booking.com even if you get access to their WebService. At Maximum they offer is to showcase their inventories on your site.
To summarize, We offer solutions for both the business model, but it totally depends on the kind of partnership you have with booking.com. If you only want the widget to be hosted on your site, that’s easy. All you need to do is to signup as an affiliate with Booking.com.
Hope i was able to explain you well.
