To have a greater chance of catering to guests’ needs, properties should adapt to travelers’ demands. Among these demands is offering different prices for a room or unit based on the number of guests staying in it. The pricing per guest model offers a solution that fits this demand exactly.
This pricing model allows properties to optimize their performance and visibility on Booking.com by catering to the demands of group and solo travelers. They represent two of the highest-value traveler segments and comprise a high proportion of demand. According to Booking.com’s internal data, 22% of travelers are searching for accommodation with a group of friends while 17% of them intend to stay solo and are more likely to be budget-conscious.
By customizing your pricing to suit these segments, as a property, you can increase your chances of capturing rising demand. Pricing per guest plays a key role in this and helps properties:
- Increase reservations and revenue through a proven and in-demand solution
- Become more visible to guests as they match broader search criteria
- Gain a competitive advantage by offering tailored rates for different traveler types
- Open bigger and more expensive rooms up to a wider audience and maximize occupancy
