Why book directly?

7 reasons how you can benefit from booking directly with the hotel

1) No commissions

For bookings that are generated through a hotel booking engine the hotel usually needs to pay a commission. These fees are added to the price or are a  financial burden for the hotel. By booking directly with the hotel no commissions need to be paid. Your hotel will appreciate this..

\2) Best price guarantee

Hotels with this label guarantee the best price when booking directly with the hotel. More information here.

3) Additional services for direct bookers

Many hotels will grant additional services to guests who book directly with the hotel. This may be free parking, late checkout, a bottle of sparkling wine on arrival, free use of an electric bicycle, ... or else. These benefits are marked with the following icon on matterhorn.ch: \

4) Booking packages

Often hotels offer vacation packages that include different services that, when bought separately, will cost you more, such as skiing passes or other sports, cultural activities or packages for the whole family. Check this page for an overview of all vacation packages.

5) Are rooms free or already booked?

Only the hotel itself can tell you whether all rooms are already booked or not. 

6) Personal advice

When you talk to the hotel directly a hotel can cater for your specific needs.

7) The added value remains at the Hotel

When booking directly with the hotel no commissions need to be paid. This results in more added value for the hotel.
