WHY ON LINE BOOKING?

The web is an exploding medium and presents an immense sales opportunity for the global hotel industry.

Traditional methods of hotel reservations are rapidly changing with the Web emerging as a major force.

Until recently hotels had relied on e-mail requests and promoting themselves on third party Web sites. However current research indicates that:

  • E-mail requests lose 35% of potential on line bookers!
  • 5 times as many bookings can originate from each hotels own Web site as opposed to all the third party Web sites collectively!

As a result HBN Online was created to enable accommodation providers to capitalise on the web's sales opportunity with immediate effect and minimal cost.
