Choose Aró As the Best Booking Engine Provider For Your Independent Hotel

The pandemic has seen OTAs come in for heavy criticism over their refund policies. 

As lockdown restrictions ease, hotels are seeing an upswing in direct bookings as travellers realise the benefits of dealing with a hotel directly. 

This may be down to trust as they see what protocols a hotel has in place, better pricing or a reaction against the poor publicity. 

Now is the best time to take advantage of your guest relationships and get the full benefit from this opportunity. 

Convert lookers into bookers with the best booking engine for hotels that is tailor made for your brand.
