The Direct Booking Conundrum for Hotels

By Amit Vyas

Over the last 10 years or so, websites such as Expedia, Booking.com and other online travel agencies (OTAs) have provided a valuable service to hotels looking to sell their rooms to the ever-growing online audience of travellers.  But while this has allowed Hotels to have high online visibility this has come at a cost.  More often than not, OTAs charge between 10% and 30% of all bookings made, which over a year can amount to significant revenue.
