Following is a letter published to our fellow members of the Professional Association of Innkeepers International (paii.org):
We wish to introduce to you our new Booking Engines (Online Reservation System) for 2011. They’re available right now! BedBreakfastTraveler.com (Instant World Booking) believes that this announcement is quite timely. Economic conditions in North America, and for the B&B industry as a whole, are still quite lackluster, despite earlier forecasts. Like you, we feel that internet technology should not only make our lives easier, but also save money … and lots of it. Instant World Booking has introduced a pricing model for Booking Engines that does just that.
In short, BedBreakfastTraveler.com (Instant World Booking) guarantees you a much lower cost for your website’s booking engine than your current provider.
And what’s more, you even choose the way you want to pay: commission pricing, monthly cost, per-transaction cost, etc. We can customize a pricing plan to meet your specific needs, as well as reduce your costs. You choose the pricing model that’s best for you. What really matters is — you’ll be saving money.
For years now, we’ve been reading our competitors’ websites and blog posts explaining their cost structure. You’ve probably seen some of these articles, trying to justify commission costs of 25% – 30% for online reservation programs. And, if you use a competing Booking Engine for your website, you may be paying from $50 per month (that’s the absolute lowest) up to $300 or more per month, plus a commission for every reservation. And, then there’s the setup fee (as high as $999), and plenty of restrictions on how much availability you need to allocate to avoid higher costs.
If there’s any one message I want to get across here: Please Don’t Overpay! It’s no wonder that in the last year, some of these competing providers have been bought out by major corporations or conglomerates. This has been widely publicized in the news. Let’s just see which direction their prices go in the next year.
There’s no secret to why BedBreakfastTraveler.com (Instant World Booking) can offer the same, and better, services for a much lower cost. We’ve been developing better Booking Engines and online marketing services for close to a decade. And, we’re passing on the savings of our smart solutions to you.
