If you aren’t reaching new customers, you might be in a bit of a rut. Cloudbeds is here to help! The Cloudbeds’ Channel Manager has added 12(!) connections recently. They include some well-known names like HotelTonight as well as rapidly growing regional OTAs like Tiket.com and PegiPegi in APAC.
As always, you can connect to these new channels at no extra cost with the Cloudbeds’ Channel Manager. Plus, you can rest assured that your availability and rates are always in sync. We’ve grouped the new channels into 5 categories to help you identify which ones would be a good fit for your property.
The following OTAs can be classified as curated collections, meaning properties are often hand-picked. Approval often requires an on-property visit and a minimum review rating. If you have a boutique hotel or a unique alternative accommodation, these websites can be an excellent way to reach new guests.
