Package Used
Pay on the Stay

Ticino Hotels Group is a chain of four independent properties located in Switzerland’s Italian-speaking Ticino region. They use Sojern’s Pay on the Stay to activate multichannel digital marketing across their portfolio.

"I worked with Sojern at a previous hotel and had a great experience, so I knew I wanted to partner with them when I joined Ticino Hotels Group. Their Pay on the Stay package gives us a cleaner, more reliable business model to help with our direct booking strategy, and we’ve seen the results. To anyone considering Sojern for their digital marketing needs—I say go for it!"

Katia Monti Pietrosanti
Digital Marketing & Online Sales Manager


The Ticino Hotels team turned to Sojern to maximise their direct bookings when they faced an influx of domestic interest due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With borders now reopened, they continue to work with Sojern to broaden their reach and continue driving direct traffic to their website.


In early 2021, Ticino Hotels Group partnered with Sojern. Katia Monti Pietrosanti, Digital Marketing & Online Sales Manager, worked previously with Sojern at a different property in Lake Como, and knew that Sojern was a reliable partner for driving direct bookings. Ticino Hotels Group leveraged Pay on the Stay—a digital marketing package where hoteliers only pay a commission on completed stays. Sojern runs advertising on behalf of Ticino Hotels Group across programmatic display, Facebook, and Instagram. Sojern taps into billions of travel intent data points through the Sojern Traveler Ecosystem™ to find and engage with those who are looking to travel to the Ticino area. Sojern reaches these travellers with inspiring messages from Ticino Hotels properties, and keeps their name top of mind so when people are ready to book, they book directly with their hotels. What’s more, Sojern’s team of in-house designers build engaging display ads for each property in the Ticino Hotels Group portfolio. Since the partnership began, Sojern has driven a 30% increase in direct bookings across the portfolio.
