In Duetto’s guide for navigating the increasingly complex hotel distribution space, learn how to wield your proprietary customer data to drive more direct business and vastly improve your guests’ online-booking experience.
In the years since hotels first turned to online travel agency partners, the relationship has become unbalanced in favor of the intermediaries. Even during times of record demand, hotels are watching their profitability stagnate or erode because of rising customer acquisition costs — often in the form of higher commissions.
The OTAs continue to call on hotels, often with new promotions and sometimes with low- or no-cost tools for hotels’ technology stack. But bear in mind, there’s no such thing as a free lunch with third-party distributors. Learn how to rebalance the hotel-OTA partnership by using the data you own in your own systems to elevate your pricing and business-mix strategies and, ultimately, to relaunch a more seamless, personalized booking experience for your guests.

“OTAs can’t craft a better Revenue Strategy than a hotel with complete possession of and control over the data that truly makes the difference. Hotels use the historical performance, customer data and on-property spending information they own in their own systems to make the best possible pricing and distribution decisions.”
