How pricing strategies can help you cater to changing travel needs on

We all know that travellers want rates that are competitive, transparent and compelling. Making sure each potential guest is shown the right price at the right time is key to securing more bookings. It can also help reduce cancellations, minimise unsold rooms and prevent the need for last-minute discounts.

A strong foundation is the key to any successful pricing strategy.’s base rate plans and customisations help you build a setup that’s right for your business. Once you’ve set up your rate plans, it’s a good idea to regularly review and optimise them, maximising your reach with travellers, increasing your bookings and driving higher occupancy over time.

You can build a strong strategy with two base rate plans. recommends you begin by offering a combination of both base rate plans:

  • Fully Flexible

Offers the most freedom for guests, with free cancellation at least seven days before check-in. This is generally the most expensive rate plan on platform – it’s also the most booked.

  • Non-Refundable

Can help you secure more guaranteed bookings and revenue, but at a lower price. This is a popular choice for bookings made less than one week in advance.

Why offer a combination of rate plans?

Booked most frequently

Travellers book Non-Refundable and Fully Flexible rate plans more than any other on platform. These two rate plans together offer more clarity, as it’s easy to compare prices and choose the best option.
