About Hotel Channel Management - FAQ
A hotel or hotel chain should use a channel manager for several reasons. Firstly, it allows them to manage their room inventory and rates across multiple distribution channels from a single dashboard, which saves time and reduces manual errors. Secondly, it helps ensure rate parity across all channels, which is crucial for maintaining a hotel’s brand reputation and avoiding potential penalties from OTAs. Lastly, it enables the hotel chain to expand their reach to a wider audience and increase their revenue potential by being present on multiple OTAs.
Hotel distribution channels refer to the various channels through which a hotel chain can sell their rooms to customers, including online travel agencies (OTAs), global distribution systems (GDS), direct booking channels (such as the hotel’s website), and offline channels (such as travel agents or wholesalers). Each channel has its own benefits and challenges, and a hotel chain can use a channel manager to manage and optimize their distribution across all channels in real-time.
By using a hotel channel manager, hotel chains can streamline their online distribution, reduce manual errors, improve rate parity, and increase their revenue by expanding their reach to a wider audience.
Yes, a hotel channel manager can be useful for small hotel chains as well, as it can help them save time and money on manual distribution tasks, improve their online visibility, and compete with larger chains on a level playing field.
Multiple rate plans are different pricing strategies that a hotel chain can offer for their rooms on various distribution channels. For example, a hotel chain might offer a non-refundable rate plan, a flexible rate plan, or a corporate rate plan. Each rate plan can have different prices, restrictions, and benefits, depending on the target customer segment or the channel. For instance, a hotel chain may offer a discounted rate plan for guests who book directly through their website, and a higher rate plan for guests who book through OTAs. With a hotel channel manager, a hotel chain can easily create and manage multiple rate plans across all channels, and adjust them in real-time based on market demand, competitor prices, or other factors. This helps to increase revenue, optimize occupancy, and attract different types of customers to the hotel chain.
