what is tripconnect

TripConnect works
in two ways... two videos.

tripconnect cost per click

tripconnect instant booking pay per booking

Two different ways

TripConnect now offers two different ways to get direct bookings. In both models your direct bookings come into your freetobook online account. The main difference is in how TripAdvisor charge for the service and also where the booking takes place.

TripConnect Cost Per Click:

Your rates and availability will show on TripAdvisor with a link to make the booking "Official site". If you do not have availability then your prices will not show. Each time a customer finds you available and clicks to make a booking you will be charged for that click. You can setup this service in your TripAdvisor account where you will also find the click prices.

TripConnect Instant Booking:

With instant booking your rates and availability will show on TripAdvisor. The customer can then complete the booking on the TripAdvisor website. You do not pay for clicks, instead you pay for each booking after the guest has stayed. Instant booking charges for completed stays at either 12% or 15% of the booking value.

Cost per click system

You will need to setup TripConnect cost per click in your TripAdvisor account where you will find the price of each click (price is set by TripAdvisor and varies by property). Once it is setup you get direct bookings at zero commission and pay for the clicks each time a customer clicks through from your available rates.
