Recent data from Triptease highlights a stark reality: Hotels with the most competitive rates on metasearch platforms see a staggering +242% increase in Rev/Impr. This isn't just a trend; it's a wake-up call for all hoteliers. Being the cheapest option isn’t just about rates; it’s about influencing customer decisions, driving direct bookings, and lessening dependence on third-party platforms.
The evolution of price sensitivity in the hotel industry
In 2021, competitive direct pricing was a game-changer, significantly boosting Revenue per Impression (Rev/Impr). Come 2022, the travel boom saw a slight decline in price sensitivity, but the emphasis on competitive rates remained strong. Then 2023 hit, bringing a heightened economic awareness and an even greater need for strategic pricing.
