Today’s frequent traveler has become more loyal towards metasearch websites than towards a specific OTA.
There is one more factor at play that will see your online business through other major OTAs soar to new highs.Years ago I was in this situation myself a few times and I admit I was more than concerned – it was a real risk. Times have changed and today I believe there is no need for serious concerns anymore and the risk is manageable. As mentioned, metasearch is the number one source of traffic for OTAs; that’s where most travellers start when they want to book a hotel. Better rate parity means higher conversions, through your own website AND through other OTAs. I have changed the names of actual OTAs and do not show absolute figures, but these are real figures of a resort in Bali.So, when you have stopped working with a specific OTA the next time a customer is looking at your hotel on a metasearch website they will still see plenty of other OTAs displaying your prices and they will simply click on any of the remaining OTAs. Today EVERY frequent online traveler knows the major OTAs in their markets and OTA loyalty is a thing of the past. So stopping an uncontrollable OTA selling your hotel at lower rates than others will therefore not only result in other OTAs compensating for lost bookings from that OTA, but will actually result in more online bookings in general, PLUS you can expect higher conversions on your own website.
