Help your properties capture the increased demand for travel
As vaccinations roll out and travel restrictions loosen, we’re beginning to see hope, optimism and opportunity return to our industry. We know how important this season is for you and your partners, that’s why we’ll be providing data-backed insights and advice to help you grow your properties’ revenue.
Plan and prioritise
Occupancy pricing improves properties' performance
Occupancy pricing allows properties to set prices for all their rooms based on the number of guests actually sleeping in them. This makes them more appealing to different traveller segments and enables them to reach more potential guests. Properties that leverage occupancy pricing will appear in more search results, increase occupancy of more valuable rooms and gain a competitive advantage.
Make it easier for your properties to get paid
Booking.com facilitates guest payments and payouts to properties either by Virtual Credit Card (VCC) or via Bank Transfer (BT). You can help your properties reduce friction, create seamless payment operations and perform better by taking advantage of three related features of the Reservations API.

Discover the two guiding principles that have shaped the company's growth.
