What have we done?
15% commission fees are a major concern. Higher costs impact on individual businesses and, ultimately, on the consumer.
Throughout trade and industry, more businesses are taking steps to ensure a better online deal: either by cutting out the online middle men, or by negotiating fairer fees.
We do not advocate a complete boycot of online booking engines. But we do believe that asking for a fairer business relationship with these global corporations is a necessity for every accommodation business.
So what have we done? Well, we’ve set up the Fairer Fees Campaign to help drive forward the demand for fairer fees and fairer business practices. Next, we’ve teamed up with some IT experts and a booking entrepreneur and we’ve developed feasible alternatives for business owners:
