Book direct without using Online Travel Agents and get better rates!
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. We’re a community of hotels, hotel professionals and consumers. 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 they have to pay 12 up to 30% commission on booking from powerful intermediairs like Booking, Agoda, Expedia, etc.
When you book a room at any hotel promoted at StayAyUs.com you benefits form the best directs rates or extra services. This means from 7% up to 30% discount, or breakfast on the house or a room upgrade. There are also hoteliers where you as guest automatically receive the benefits of their loyalty program.
We are not a traditional booking website. We’re a search and find tool that puts you directly in contact with the hotel of your choice. Our website is for hotels free to use. We are financed by hotels who pay a low monthly marketing participation contribution. The height of the contribution is depending on the number of rooms of the hotel. With these contributions, we actively make use SEO, online advertising, newsletters and Social Media to promote the website and our participating hotels. We also frequently participate in fairs, trade shows and magazines. In addition, with partners like channel managers (cubilis) we're going to organise masterclasses in which we inform hoteliers about matters such as conversion optimisation and boosting direct bookings. This means that all the money from bookings goes directly to the hotel!
Why hotels work with us?
We don’t hijack hotels brand on search engines, we don’t let hotels sign rate parity agreements, we don’t outbid hotel rooms in search engines. All we do is “inform consumers that it is in theirs and hoteliers best interest to book directly at the hotel instead of using expensive intermediaries”.
If you, just like us believe in transparency, direct bookings and fair room rates! We love to get you on board as consumer or hotel.
