    I think that Expedia is a ‘must have’ ota, as a lot of overseas visitors use it and you will likely find that not many of your fellow motels are. The reason is a not very user friendly set up process that can take weeks, even months. I know of a few moteliers that simply gave up on it. Everything has to be submitted for approval, which takes too much time.

    When we first started to use Siteminder to control our online booking over four years ago, I signed up with about fifteen, but after two years a number of these had never produced a single booking or raised their commission rate to excess, so I dropped them. I now have just nine.
