    I Totally agree with bellavilla 166. Most chains behaviour & performance is 20 years old.The days that promoting a certain brand use to create business is over. Most chains have been in Australia much longer that booking.com, wotif.com. Agoda & several others. The percentage of commission for on line bookings for different site is anywhere between 10 – 15%.

    If you compare the percentage of franchise fee vs booking generated by most chains is anywhere between 40 % to 70%.

    The most discouraging element of these contracts are the hefty penalty for the early exit fees out of the contracts which anywhere between 3 to 5 years.

    I definitely discourage anyone to join the old brands which is non productive.
