Spotlight on... Direct Booking Strategies

How do the industry's most successful hoteliers achieve their goals?

Download the report

Just over a year ago, Triptease hosted the inaugural Direct Booking Summit, bringing together hundreds of hoteliers to discuss the state of the Direct Booking Movement. 12 months later, a lot has changed.

No longer just admiring the 'Book Direct' successes of major brands from afar, hoteliers worldwide are making a concerted effort to bring about change of their own.

For this Spotlight on... Direct Booking Strategies, we've canvassed hoteliers via surveys and interviews at the 2017 Direct Booking Summit. We've been asking everything from "what do you like about your OTA partners?" to "what is the most impactful strategy you implemented in 2017?"

Sections include loyalty, live chat, OTAs and metasearch - a true A-Z of strategies to try.

  • The highest-impact strategy to implement in 2018
  • The clauses hoteliers fight hardest over in negotiations with OTAs
  • How to leverage live chat to turbo-charge direct bookings
  • Why metasearch needs independent hoteliers more than ever
