(And look amazing.)

Here's How

What’s the difference for Château les Merles?


Oh, about € 50,000 per year, for one thing.

Here’s how.

€10,297 saved on commissions

With 20% of OTA bookings made as direct bookings instead, Château les Merles saves a lot on commissions.

According to Lilian, les Merles loses €51,487 per year to OTA commissions. (Click for details.)
  • 8 OTA bookings x $200/night = $1800
  • $1800 x 17% OTA commission = $306 lost per night
  • $306 lost per night x 30 days = $9180 lost per month
  • x6 months (due to low season) = $55,080 per year lost to OTA commissions
  • So 20% saved of of $55,080 yearly expense = $11,016/year = €10,297/year saved

€41,897 earned in additional bookings

By just increasing the 6 months per year booked to 7 months, Château les Merles earns much more.

According to Lilian, les Merles could earn quite a lot with a higher low season. (Click for details.)
  • 1 additional month booked per year (7 months instead of 6 months) = $1800*30*.83 = $44,820 = €41,897
