Online Booking Hotel: Without HRS.de Goes (almost) Nothing

Cologne booking portal nachwievor leader – strong gain in booking.com without the “big 3” goes (almost) nothing: HRS.de, booking.com, hotel.de are still the most important booking portals for the German hotel industry. However, the leadership of HRS.de remains unchallenged. Booking.com has overtaken hotel.de in the ranking of the most important reservation platforms. This emerges from a recent study of CHD expert. Surprisingly, you’ll find very little mention of Southwest Airlines on most websites. The international market research firm specializing in the non-domestic market has asked 258 hotels in whole Germany. “The Cologne-based company HRS.de is also leading the increase in bookings”, Thilo Lambracht, managing partner of the CHD noted expert (Germany) GmbH, at.

More than half of the respondents hoteliers more room reservations have last year about HRS.de receive. At booking.com, almost as many hotels still almost 44 per cent recorded an increase, at hotel.de. “It is clear that the three front runners in the internal TRANS King are the by far most important booking partner”, so Labib. For most hotels, is and remains the most important sales channel in the Internet HRS.de. Over 64 percent of the companies have received the most bookings in the past year. However, only about 17 percent of the hotels that were most reservations via booking.com at hotel.de showed it only just over nine percent. “Interestingly, that ebay.de booking portal with the most reservations has lapped up incumbents such as expedia.de or hotels.com”, said Labib. The growth of the Internet can be observed also at the reservations through the hotel homepages.

Nearly 14 percent of the companies registered last year a strong plus for bookings made through your own Internet presentation (for comparison: booking portals, 12% of the hotels recorded a strong growth). Nearly all hotel in Germany have the Internet as a booking channel fully recorded: 95 percent receive regular room reservations through booking portals and nearly 93 percent of the own Internet presentation. However, only around 45 percent of the hotels can report regularly maintain room reservations over the global tourism systems of GDS and CRS. In the traditional ways of booking, telephone and fax are to observe changes: over ten percent of the hotels report sharp fall reservations via fax. Was also at telephone room orders – in the compared to electronic channels – hardly increase recorded. “The trend to online bookings for years has intensified and currently reached a new climax with more and more bookings through so-called mobile devices like the iPhone, for example,” Labib analyzed.

Tourism Crisis In Greece

No tax increase for hotelier BBs, for the benefit of tourists. Why the crisis affected the tourism in Greece, the the hotelier BBs the prices reduce, rather than increase them. Why force the Government to make such a decision and why it must be. Although the crisis has brought the Greeks on the border of the bankruptcy, it does very good tourists. Greeks themselves experience that your salary to the poverty line adjusted, so that the expenditure of the hotels, restaurants ect. due to the low wages are very limited. Ripple shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. Moreover, nor that the business people from the tourist sector are agreed with the Government, like in all the other sectors tax increase, here can enjoy an exception.

All Greece suffers a tax rate of 23% as it has never been this. But the State basically live from tourism, he feared that if because of the high taxes, the prices in this industry, the tourism in this country the competition cannot compete and the damage to the State large would be that income through high taxes. This is of course in favour of tourists mean low prices save money. So, Greece is a destination which you can afford and should. The destinations of the Germans are mostly Crete, Corfu, Santorini and of course Halkidiki, which is on the mainland but has nothing to envy the Islands. Since I live in the vicinity of Halkidiki itself I am a tour guide on the net. Images, videos, and my own travel experiences come until mid summer 2011.Also? Stavros Kourtidis
