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.
