What do metasearch engines do

Dynamic prices in hotel
They display hotel room rates from various booking sites and OTAs all in one place. TravelLine Metasearch will allow you to offer the best deal — your website price on metasearch engines.
Displaying your offer in direct comparison to OTAs lets you compete with them. Price, that appears much cheaper than your OTA commission fees, encourages travellers to click onto it and complete their booking right there or on your website.



How can you benefit from metasearch engines

Your potential guests use price comparison sites to find accommodation. Display your
direct offer there to encourage more clients to book on your website rather than on OTA.




43.6% of travellers use metasearch every time they book a hotel
