The hotel, restaurant and tourism sector has been hard hit by the Covid crisis19 and the closure of many establishments.
Hoteliers have asked their partners, the tourism web giants, Expedia Inc (Expedia, Egencia, Hotels.com, Trivago, Venere.com, Hotwire.com, Ratestogo, Hotelclub, Carsrental.com, Homeaway, Expedia affiliate Network) & Priceline Group (Booking.com, Priceline.com, Villas.com, Kayak, Agoda, Pricematch, rentalcars.com, BookingSuite) to lower their commission by 5% per booking.
THEY HAVE STRICTLY REFUSED TO HELP THE HOTELIERS.
What you need to know:
18%: the average percentage of commission paid by a hotelier for each reservation made through these platforms, which can be as high as 25%.
400 million: the annual amount of commission paid by hoteliers to foreign accounts.
? Euros: how much of this 400 million is actually taxed in FRANCE? A concrete example: at Booking.com the VAT is 0 € on all invoices!
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO SAVE JOBS
STOP booking your professional or leisure stays on these platforms - THEY ARE NOT LESS CHEAPER
RESERVE LIVE (hotels official websites, e-mail, telephone) in hotels that create jobs, pay their taxes in FRANCE and need to invest permanently
THE HOTELIERS THANK YOU FOR YOUR CITIZEN RESERVATIONS.
