Cubilis is the first online channel manager to work with StayAtUs.com The hotel booking site for hotels who love to get Direct Bookings! StayAtUs.com is founded in co-creation with hotel owners and managers, who want to create a better balance between working with commission based OTAs and the same time become less dependent by creating more direct sales.
StayAtUs.com, part of StayAtUs-Group, has announced its unique market approach at the ITB travel congress in Berlin 2017. CEO Edwin Onderstal explains: "The market is ready for alternatives to the current commission-based pricing model sites like Booking.com and Expedia are known for. Our goal is to create a marketplace for direct bookings because this is in the best interest of consumers and hoteliers. For hotels it is difficult to invest in services and employees when their gross revenues are low because they have to pay 12 up to 30% commission too powerful intermediaries. For hotels it’s important to find the right balance between OTAs and direct sales.
StayAtUs.com unique vision: We don’t charge high commissions or transaction fees, no matter how many bookings you will receive. Our business model is based on a sharp priced marketing contribution model like Cubilis. With these contributions, we actively make use of SEO, online advertising, newsletters and Social Media to promote StayAtUs.com and our participating hotels. This means that all the money from bookings goes directly to the hotel!
To make it easy for hotels to join StayAtUs.com we work together with partners. We’re proud that Cubilis will be our first Channel Management partner.
