The travel websites such as Make My Trip, Yatra, Goibibo, Booking.com, Hotels.com, Travelocity, Expedia, Priceline and others charge between 22% to 25% margins from the hotels and service providers to promote them on their online portals.
As a result of which consumer or the traveler doesn’t get that much of a bargain. A contract between a hotel and an online travel agency provides for rate parity. Each travel agency wants an assurance from the hotel or a resort that the rate / package provided to it is the lowest publicly available rate, and the contract between the travel agency and the hotels has a clause of stiff penalties to the hotel if a lower rate is found elsewhere.
As mentioned above, there are a number of online travel portals offering best internet price or lowest price challenge but that challenge falls flat due to due heavy commissions they take from hoteliers which in turn is having a direct effect on the pocket of the customer.
Moving along there are more aggressive travel portals, the deep discount, opaque sites, such as Hotwire.com and the Priceline who employ their own price tricks. You name your price on Priceline, or pick one of several lowball prices posted on Hotwire, and they pick the hotel for you: they make a reservation for you at the hotel whose rooms they are selling at that price. You don’t know which hotel you’ll be staying at until your reservation is confirmed, which is really not an acceptable condition to any traveler. RBS doesn’t believe in the concept of deceiving the customer with a price gimmicks but delivers lowest possible prices because of the relationship built with the hoteliers over the years. We have been in the travel business from last 25 years and have developed arrays of contacts in the travel industry thereby giving us competitive edge over the competitors and adding following values to our guests in the same price
Considering the above, we can proudly boast that RBS offers world class services at the lowest prices.
