What your hotel pays

This program allows you to own a percentage of reservation opportunities via the “Book on TripAdvisor” button, which is strategically placed above the other booking buttons (Yep, the same booking button you’re competing for in the TripConnect cost-per-click program – which we’ll talk about below). The hotel either pays a 15% commission per reservation to claim 50% of the reservations made using that button or a 12% commission rate per reservation to claim 25% of the reservations made using that button.

Who your hotel competes against

Your hotel will be competing with the OTAs with which you participate for a percentage of the reservations made via the “Book on TripAdvisor” button. For the remaining 50% or 75% of reservations made through the “Book on TripAdvisor” button that are not claimed by your hotel, those will go to the participating OTAs that are also the two highest bidders through the TripConnect CPC program.
