Suggestions of Our Association

Suggestions of Our Association FKHA, given to FHRAI through our member and Executive Committee member of SIHRA Jose Pradeep two days back when our suggestions were asked for ( MMT-Go Ibibo പ്രശ്നത്തിൽ FHRAIക്‌ നമ്മൾ രണ്ടു ദിവസം മുമ്പ് കൊടുത്ത കത്ത്)
Suggestions by Federation Of Kerala Hotels Association(FKHA):-
1. The Commission with Each Hotel, be fixed.(15 to 20%)
2. The Upper Ceilng of the Commission for the entire Hotel Industry also be fixed so that the present mayhem is over( 20% Max). Commission taken by Expedia/ Booking.Com/ Agoda etc is in the range of 15- 20% only.
3. The Booking Voucher should show the Commission taken by the OTA to ensure that the decision arrived at is strictly implemented by the OTA and the FO staff can see it readily.
4. Rating Hotels depending on the Commission/ Promotions offered is to be stopped with immediate effect.
5.Prior permission of the Hotel be taken before enhancing the Commission already agreed or before introducing any promotions.
6. More aggressive stand from FHRAI and it’s Regional Associations is the need of the hour. If the move fails now, the day is not far off when the Hotels be getting below even 50% net and none will ever dare to question them.
7. More Press Conferences, media interactions, communications with industry/ members, efficient use of the Social media to expose their ulterior motives etc be done which will give confidence to the Hoteliers to stand with the move, rather than taking a selfish approach, leading to the failure of the present move.
