What's in the small print?
We ask that you:
Adhere to rate & availability parity
Offer exclusive package or short break to hotelshopUK for marketing & promotional purposes at price point similar to those already advertised on the site with adequate availability.
Agree to provide one package to be used as a competition prize - minimum 2 night B&B Dinner 2nd night
Agree commission payment on accommodation bookings
Agreed a booking charge on your net group rates for all Group Bookings
Note that All costs & commissions are exclusive of VAT
How do I manage my rates and availability?
Our hotel support team will set up your initial hotel pages on the websites. We will subsequently provide you with access to our extranet (and full training).
Our systems link to most standard channel management systems which will enable you to manage rates and availability on a daily basis.
Your commission is too high
We are positioned at the lower end of the leisure market - cheaper than last-minute and substantially cheaper than Superbreak.
I don't pay a fee to be on any website so why should I with you?
We don't charge a fee to be featured on our website either. Like many intermediaries we charge a commission for bookings.
What we charge is a contribution towards marketing activities that are proactively selling your product. This contribution allowsyou to be featured on major distribution channels without getting involved in the heavy and substantial costs. E.g. features via Travelzoo, The Telegraph etc... Instead of getting involved in three figure costs - a monthly contribution allows the hotels to be featured via such partners. Costs for independent hotels are based on approx 1 booking a month... so you know after you received one booking a month from us - this has paid for the marketing and then anything else on top is profitable business.
