Ideally a hotel would always sell all rooms at the highest rack rate, as this is rarely possible the challenge is to find the right price to utilise a hotels capacity in the most profitable way possible.

In a nutshell the idea of yield management is to achieve the highest selling price while maximising occupancy.

What can small hotels and accommodation providers do?

A refined pricing structure is a very effective way to maximise profit.

Pricing Strategy

Use different rates and discounts to offer the right price at the right time to the right customer. Common price strategies are:

  • Standard pricing /rack rate
  • Seasonal pricing
  • Day of the week pricing e.g. weekend/ weekday
  • Last minute rates
  • Early bird rates
  • Long stay discounts
  • Promotional prices
  • Refundable/non refundable prices
  • Packages
  • Benefits for loyal guests / voucher codes
  • Group or agent rates
  • Dynamic Updates
