before the internet hotels didn’t pay commissions… The reservations came on the phone, fax or letter… there is a past before the internet ! About 10 years ago startet the internet reservation systems. At the beginning hoteliers thought it was a good idea to get more reservations… but today all the market is ruled by this OTAS that get till 27%. Hoteliers cannot get out of that ! A technical improvement must help to increase profit not the opposite. The only ones who get more profits are this parasites that are between you and hotels. With this systems hotels loose a great part of benefit, have less resources for renovating and hire less service… You loose in term of service because we pay too much for a reservation.
