We offer several different types of competitive hotel rate surveys; most are 28 days out.
The first type is a one source. If the only requested source is a website, i.e. homepage or online vendor, the hotel is checked for availability one day at a time. If requested, we will check for minimum night stays on any sold out dates. If not specifically requested, we don’t. Another one source option is calling the hotel directly. For this shop, the hotel is called and availability is requested for Sunday one night, Monday four nights, and Friday two nights, unless otherwise requested.
The second type of Competitive Rate Survey is a two source. Most often these reports have both an internet source and an in house source. In these cases, the internet is checked first and the report is then passed along to a caller. When calling in house after the internet has been shopped, the format is slightly different. The hotels are called in the same date ranges as the availability was listed on line. If the rate is different online for every night of the week, it is called the same way, each night individually. If the rates are broken up throughout the week, i.e. Sunday through Tuesday are the same rate on line, it is called Sunday for three nights. If the rate is identical for 7 days, we will break it down Sunday for one night, Monday for four nights, and Friday for two nights.
In the event that a multiple source CRS is requested for all internet sources, i.e. Homepage, Travelocity, Expedia, Hotels.com, Orbitz, etc., each site is checked one day at a time. If a hotel is not listed on a specific site, we make every effort to locate it, trying different name options. Call for pricing.
