    Most are now charging 12% …….find me someone who still charges 10%
    checkin.com went under last year and we were owed about $3500.00………….now they are back in operation with a virtual credit card system and are charging 15% commission.

    My advertising is limited to the online accommodation providers. I do not advertise with any news papers (including Seniors) as after the costs it is not worth it. I also do not advertise with any map people. i am curerently advertising with trip adviser but the responce is slow and their guests comments are a joke.
    i have been threatened to give a discount to a customer or he would write a bad comment on trip adviser. Also other motels are writing comments about their own motel to “Up” the ratings. The whole system needs a good shake down to prevent false comments. The comments on wotif etc are more in line with fact and not fiction.
