October Tips

Moving up in the Partner Programme: October tips

As we enter the final quarter of 2019, the Connectivity team shares their advice on getting the most from our partnership.

What’s happened in the programme this past quarter?

Last quarter was all about peak season. While travellers were enjoying their summer holidays, the programme focused on helping your properties improve their performance during this busy period.

We also teamed up with you to bring new properties on board in selected locations, with joint acquisition events, online marketing campaigns and commercial acquisition deals.

We closed the quarter by welcoming many of you to Booking.com’s annual thought leadership conference, Click. There, we shared our vision for the future of connectivity, showcased solutions from top-performing partners and held meetings with our new Connectivity Advisory Boards

Want to increase your score and ranking before 2019 ends? 

As we’re now in the final quarter of 2019, this is your last chance to boost your performance in each pillar of the programme. To secure your tier status and benefits for 2020, follow these tips:

  • Property Performance and Products & Quality: You can earn up to 400 points with our end-of-year deal: 100 points for simply promoting the implementation of high-impact opportunities, and 300 points for adopting the Promotions and Opportunities API.

  • Business Value: You can earn extra points, or incentives, by increasing your active property count. To organise joint acquisition activities or access Booking.com promotional material, contact your Connectivity Partner Business Manager for support.

  • Engagement:

    • We believe our partnership helps connected properties reach their full potential when we both share commercially relevant advice. That’s why we’ve created a Property Performance course for your commercial/support team(s). If half of your teams take the course, you’ll earn 100 programme points.
    • Our Connectivity Support team is committed to offering fast and effective  service. Help us be there for you by registering your emergency contact and support staff details – we’ll even award you 20 points for doing so.
    • We want to hear your feedback on all aspects of our partnership. Keep an eye on your inbox for our Q4 satisfaction survey – just replying is worth 10 points!
