HOT OFF THE PRESS - - -
Hoteliers, there is no 'war' with Airbnb (amateurs, no quality/safety standards), so don't be fooled by a deluded hotel marketing media!
Our thoughts entirely - THE MILLENNIAL DELUSION - in modern hotel marketing, age stereotyping and age based targreting alone is not only just plain wrong - IT COULD COST YOU DEARLY
CHANNEL SHIFT - IN CONJUNCTION WITH OUR ECOMMERCE PARTNERS NAVARINO, INNFINITE IS THE MOST AGGRESSIVE CHANNEL SHIFT STRATEGY COMPANY IN THE UK - so contact us for more details - AND READ THIS - Hotel guests 'are being fleeced by online agents': Hoteliers say they are forced to hike prices to cover 25% commission taken by websites
Repeated negative marketing press and total lack of, or very very poor ROI from social media marketing for hotels means we are certainly not prioritising it in current marketing strategies for our client hotels
To the surprise of its "partners", the site (Booking.com) now reserves the right to automatically resell a room that one of its customers has canceled, so as not to lose commission. They block access to the customer's bank information, so that the hotel cannot claim the forfeit for no-show. They eliminate the transmission of e-mail addresses of their customers, a ridiculous practice to avoid direct contact between the hotel and the customer. This does not characterize a relationship of trust between business partners.

Our Scottish latest news, reviews and comments
We think Scotland needs its very own hospitality forum like www.hospitalitynet.org , or www.hotelnewsnow.com, spawned in the USA, where we can share with you on a professional platform, all things Scottish travel and hotels, from industry and market news, events, feature columns, articles, advice - and Scottish hoteliers’ own news and views – in effect a professional community and a development resource.
We’ll combine this with Innfinite’s blog, already launched, at www.ukhotelexperts.co.uk, - and our new Edinburgh hotels blog at www.edinburghhotelexperts.com and we’ll shortly be inviting all Scottish hoteliers, serviced accommodation providers and innkeepers to join up, and make initial contributions of the matters concerning them most about the industry in Scotland.
Advertising opportunities will be available too, and we’ll be highlighting all the major news features from around the world too which we feel have a real impact on today’s marketplace and on the performance of your business. It’s all about helping you get results, especially in the very challenging market we all face out there.
