Hotel Internet Rates
Internet Rates are sites have all seen these highly advertised sites on the TV, radio, newspaper, and magazines.
Their advertising budget is out the
roof because they mark up their rooms 30 to 40 percent they get from the hotels. That is huge and
bit ridiculous we might add.
These third party Internet Rates have the power to triple their mark up their
rates and charge local sales tax on the sell rate and also add a service charge
so they really get at your wallet from every direction.
The Internet Rate sites pay the Net Rates as agreed in their original
negotiations back the hotel vendors and then pocket the tax and service charge
on the difference between the Net Rate and marked up portion of the sale.
As professionals, we can say that the only time you are getting a good rate with Internet Rates is when the rate is 30 to 50 percent off. Internet Rates are prepaid.
