How to help your properties better understand, prevent and reduce cancellations
Tackling cancellations together
Amid the demands of running a busy property, we understand that cancellations can be a headache for your properties. Many cancellations are genuinely unavoidable (guests’ plans simply change), but there are steps your properties can take to reduce cancellations and avoid ‘harmful’ cancellations – those last-minute cancellations and no-shows that leave you with no time to react and no way to replace lost business.
That’s why we’ve created a guide that outlines the tools we provide to help your properties proactively avoid these situations, save time on admin and secure revenue.
For example, did you know there’s a ‘Cancellations characteristics’ report available to your properties in their Booking.com extranet?
The ‘Cancellation characteristics’ report analyses your properties’ bookings and provides them with an overview of:
- Their overall cancellation and no-show rates
- When their cancellations occur
- How the property compares with similar properties in their area
Your properties can use this data to address their specific cancellation patterns and make smart decisions that improve their overall performance.
We only make the report available in the extranet because we use real-time data to make sure that the information presented is synced with reservations for maximum accuracy. Sharing the report with third-party APIs could result in data discrepancies.
