“Whereas it has been commonly believed that hotel chains were the most vulnerable sector to the inroads of Airbnb, perhaps it is the OTAs that are more at risk. The giant rental website charges property owners (hoteliers or otherwise) a commission on bookings of only 3% to 5% which is way below the 15% to 30% typically billed by the big OTAs. The question now has become: will Airbnb be adding more traditional hotels to its platform that don’t fit into the categories of boutique, lifestyle or independent?” Macy Marvel, Author of the Hotel Distribution Report 2020.
