Frequently Asked Questions

Does the Rate Checker competitive intelligence tool requires specialist skills?

Not a all. Your FASTBOOKING Rate checker is pretty simple to use. It allows you to visualize all results on a single screen. You can then configure the tool to receive the complete Details Report by email. This report gives you an overview of all rates found on the Internet for your competitive set. Use it to compare the pricing and facilities with competition. The rates are color-coded to help you interpret them.

What kind of report is available with Rate Checker?
  • Best Price Report indicates the best price found for a hotel on any given day and on which site it was found.
  • Availability Report shows the channels on which your competitors are available
  • Average Trends Report presents the trend of the market average over a specific period.
  • Positioning Report indicates your position in the market compared to the other hotels and to the average rate.
  • Details Trend Report compares market rates over a given period to identify the rate variance.
How many hotels and channels can I monitor with Rate Checker?

You can compare up to 20 hotels on their websites and up to 10 distribution channels. In case you need more competitive intelligence you can ask to increase the size of the monitoring hotel and channel windows.

What can I do with the data?

Connect the data with your revenue management system and use it for yield management.
