Travel comparison site Wego.com today launched yet another groundbreaking marketing tool providing hoteliers greater control of the appearance of their property’s listing on the popular site. Hotels are now able to manage and update property details including images, descriptions, amenities and location maps instantly using Wego’s specially designed editing tools.

Hotels can take ownership of their listing by creating their own account on Wego.com and with the launch of the Premium Hotel Listings product, properties can now also add their website URL, contact details and also highlight special offers on Wego.com and sites powered by Wego.

These listing tools place the power of instant connection with millions of Wego travelers, directly into the hands of property managers without paying any commissions. Hoteliers can sign up to manage their hotel listing and receive a free premium listing by visiting http://hoteliers.wego.com.

“We recognise the need for hotel owners to be able to market their direct booking channels and special offers on Wego. A lot of Wego travellers also express a preference to make their bookings on the hotels own website,”

explained Craig Hewett, Founder & CCO of Wego.com.

Andrew Hickey Vice President for Rooms, Resorts World Sentosa applauds the tool. “It’s becoming increasingly difficult for hotels to get noticed online so we welcome Wego’s Premium listings as a tool for us to stand out from our competitors,” he said.

Wego’s Premium Hotel Listings are sold on a flat-fee subscription basis, with costs varying based upon a property’s number of rooms. Rates start from $25 per month.

Hotel Special Offers are created in minutes with a choice of customised pre-built offers, including:

  • Percentage discount on room
  • Dollar discount on room
  • Room upgrade
  • Food and beverage credits
  • Complimentary Value Adds (e.g free internet access)
  • Advance purchase rates
  • Free night Stays (e.g. stay 3, pay 2)

Special offers can be configured to be redeemable either online as part of the booking process, or as printed coupons to be redeemed on arrival. The special offers will be displayed prominently on relevant hotel search result pages and on Wego.com’s weekly deals newsletters giving greater visibility and opportunities for conversion.

Wego.com continues to break barriers to provide the hotel industry with the ultimate sales and marketing tools, delivering customers directly to your door with the lowest distribution costs.
