“This List captures the distribution channels, specifically OTAs, which provide a critical measure of a property’s success – its online bookings. It is important to remember that each booking channel plays its own unique role in the decision-making and booking process for the modern traveller,” he said.
“So, while the List gives us an overview, it is important for every property to consider their niche and audience while signing up to distribution channels,” he added.
