WebHotelier announced as a TripConnect PREMIUM launch partner

We're excited to announce that we’re expanding our services to include TripConnect™ - a powerful new tool from TripAdvisor that can help you generate remarkable direct booking opportunities.

TripConnect, which is available now to TripAdvisor Business Listings subscribers,* gives you an exciting new way to compete for bookings by sharing your direct rates and availability on the world’s largest travel site:

  • Drive travelers straight to your website’s booking page — and make direct booking fast and easy for potential guests
  • Increase revenues — travelers book directly on your website, where it’s easier to upsell to higher-priced rooms
  • Reduce costs — when you generate more direct bookings, you reduce your acquisition costs

As a TripConnect Premium Partner, we’re proud to offer you this new opportunity to boost direct bookings — plus Revenue Tracking and automated Review Express services, which makes it easier than ever to request valuable traveler reviews. Visit www.TripAdvisor.com/TripConnect for details, and watch for more updates about these important value-added services!

*Business Listings subscribers can access powerful hospitality marketing tools that increase
exposure and drive bookings on the world’s largest travel site. For full details, visit www.tripadvisor.com/BusinessListings
