The Grand Mark Prague partnered with Sojern to increase direct bookings. With a pay on-the-stay, commission-based advertising solution, Sojern generated over €45K in direct booking revenue in under four months, and represented over one-quarter of their total booking revenue during the same period.
"I didn’t expect such a fast increase in direct bookings. Our share of direct bookings grew from 10-15% to almost 30% and Sojern is part of this increase, definitely. Since we started partnering, the direct bookings increased rapidly."
From its beautiful architecture to its food and drink, Prague is a popular destination for travellers from around the globe. And hotels are not just competing against each other, they are competing against online third parties for direct bookings. “Customers who book with us may also be customers of the big third parties,” says Jiří Černý, Revenue & Reservations Manager, “and we would like to bring those customers to our website to book directly with us.”
