Raul Tomescu
CEO & Founder


It's not easy to keep up with the challenges of the modern hospitality industry, especially if you want to offer quality to your guests. Today, there are a number of strategies that can help you achieve your goals and not only improve your guests' experience, but also increase your bookings and revenue. In the following article, I'd like to introduce you to Booking.com  optimization features that we at Visitor can offer to help you keep up with the constantly evolving and changing trends in the hospitality industry.

What Is OTA Optimization?

Before we get into the details of specific strategies, let's start with a little theoretical introduction on what OTA optimization is. OTA optimization in hotel software, such as Visitor, allows you to maximize performance through strategic management and integrations. OTAs are online interfaces or platforms where hoteliers can offer bookable rooms, such as Booking.com , Airbnb or Expedia.

Why Should You Focus on OTA Optimization?

Online Travel Agencies play a very significant role in the hospitality industry. They help you to reach your potential guests more easily. But nowadays, in the digital age, it's very important to have a strong online presence, and OTAs can help you achieve this. So the answer to this question can be found in the following three answers:

✅ Increased online visibility

✅ Reaching a wider target audience

✅ Improved Revenue Management

Showcasing Sustainability and Environmental Awareness

With OTA optimization, you can show your guests that your company operates in a sustainable and environmentally aware way. You can offer options such as green energy use, recycling or the use of local products that can appeal to your increasingly environmentally conscious guests.

Guest Community and Loyalty Programs

OTA optimization gives you the opportunity to build and support an active guest community and launch loyalty programs. You can use social media platforms, blogs or online forums to connect directly with your guests, while encouraging them to become return guests through loyalty programmes.

OTA Optimization Features at Visitor

We know that as simple as the hospitality industry may seem, it is actually a continuous challenge for accommodation providers. That's why we've created our service to help you make a positive impact in the competitive hospitality industry. Above I've shown why you should focus on this, now let's look at the steps and specific strategies that Visitor offers to help you achieve it.

Dynamic and Smart Pricing Strategy

Thanks to market trends and advanced algorithms, you can optimize your prices to maximize bookings. The advantage is that prices can be managed from a single source and changed dynamically in real time.

In addition, the pricing framework based on real-time data also allows you to strategically increase ADR based on market trends.

Reaching Potential Guests Through OTAs

Thanks to the right optimization function, you can reach a wider target audience. This strategy includes working with emerging OTAs such as Booking.com or Expedia to help you increase your bookings. The technological solution we offer is the channel manager, which allows you to promote your accommodation on OTA platforms.
