I fully agree with Busybees, accom providers have to add commission to the OTA site. I do. When a consumer decides to travel to a destination he/she does a search- several websites appear. Those paid one first then best SEO site. If you motel site is on first page and you are cheapest, guess where the booking will go.
Accom providers have to educate our guests to book directly, no fees more flexible cancellation policies and maybe freebies.
