Optional products and services to achieve better exposure:
- Gift Card program: Attract new guests with our risk-free, nationally promoted gift cards, sold online or at your own inn. You get 80%-85% of every dollar redeemed; participation is free. Because the cost of an inngoer's stay generally exceeds the value of the redeemed certificate, the effective commission rate is usually 10% or less! Plus, you make 20% commission on the ones you sell yourself!
- Sell Rooms while you sleep: Sign up for BedandBreakfast.com Online Reservations and encourage travelers to book your property 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Introduce your inn to millions of potential guests through our website and Expedia.com, hotels.com, Sidestep and Kayak.com.
- Availability calendar linking program: If you have an electronic availability calendar displayed on your website, you can display it on BedandBreakfast.com. For an annual fee (free for RezOvation Booking Engine and Webervations customers), BedandBreakfast.com will provide two calendar links: one from your brief listing on your city page, and one from your full listing. An additional link will appear on your Inns.com listing.
- 90-day risk-free upgrade guarantee: Get higher placement on your city page, add more photos, and link to your website. Upgrade to Silver, Gold or Platinum.
