In our video below we look at listings of hotels by name, by size, by location...and compare the rate of clicks to hotels from our system before and after adopting Visual Bookings and mobile-friendly system. There was an increase from 0.924 in September 2012, to 2.968 in September 2013. That's quite a bit more than doubled...rates have actually more than tripled! Time spent by vacationers on visual pages stood at an average of 3.44 minutes compared to only 53 seconds on non-visual pages. These improvements indicate increased consumer satisfaction and interest!

Hotels Dramatically multiply direct bookings with Visual Bookings Technology!
Travellers are known to enjoy instant visual information, making travel planning and booking dramatically more intuitive, easy to use and instant. They are also now using all sorts of devices and channels including smartphones, iPads and even TV screens for their travel needs. As a hotelier or other accommodation operator, you have to consider where they are and naturally Visual Travel Bookings, with its Responsive Web Design displays optimally on all screens regardless of size and resolution. Travellers can plan trips and book from whatever device they are on at any time.
Bookings can be real-time with inventory management or via a simple request system that gathers the credit card information, the dates and the total costs. Reservations can then confirm the booking based on availability, upgrade or correspond with the client in terms of changing their dates. They can even share it with another hotel. This is very popular with small hotels who don't want to manage inventory, or to lose business because the room that the client has chosen is not available at that time. So as you can see, Visual Bookings is really an exceptional product!

In a reseller system (booking.com, Expedia, etc) your content may be somewhat managed for you. As the reseller is taking a commission on all your sales, they have a vested interest in making it work. But they are also selling many other hotels and sometimes they feature and sell what is most profitable and easy.
In the subscription-based systems, you take on the responsibility of insuring your data is accurate and optimised to get the best visibility and bookings.
In this Barbados.org version, hotels subscribe to the service and don't pay a commission. In this model hotels are responsible for managing their data. What we are seeing is that those who have good content, offer best rates guarantees and have high impact photos and tags, are getting the majority of the business. So don't delay and get your information humming.
Let us know what you think. Are you more interested in a Done For You Service where we manage the content and optimize it for you?
