What is a Rate Shopper?
A Rate Shopper observes your competitors and builds market data. You get valuable insights into the market demand and prices of your competitors.
This is not only very interesting, but also extremely valuable. You can follow your competitors’ pricing strategies and analyse and rank your position in the market. You can also see booking intentions in real time. At happyhotel, prices and price changes go directly into the algorithm for your prices!
This way you achieve the optimal prices on the market!
Insights through a Rate Shopper
Analysed booking data from the OTA’s gives you the information you need. What are the prices of your competitors? How high is the regional demand? What is your competitors’ pricing strategy?
This information helps you to position yourself in the market in the best possible way.
Increase your turnover by making tactically smart pricing decisions.
It is not a question of basing your prices on the prices of your competitors in the CompSet. Instead, it is important to carefully observe what is happening in the market. In this way, you can quickly recognise, for example, if your prices for certain days are relatively too high. Depending on how your own market demand behaves, it may make sense to adjust your prices or not!
Where does happyhotel get the data from?
We work closely together with HQ revenue and get the daily updated prices via the API.
HQ revenue is our partner and we are in regular contact with them. With HQ revenue, different channels can be analysed. The prices of competitors can be analysed via all OTAs (Booking, HRS, etc.) and brands.
