Hotelcard is a subscription-based booking platform in Switzerland founded in 2009. Unlike other online travel agencies, Hotelcard does not charge any commission or fee from its hotel partners. Hotels use Hotelcard to fill their empty rooms, offering exclusive discounts to its paying members. 

Better occupancy rates during off-peak times

The aim of Hotelcard is to improve the occupancy rate of participating hotels during off-peak periods. As a hotel you may offer your vacancies on to paying Hotelcard members at a discount of either 10%, 30% or 50%. These discounted rates are accessible to subscribers only and not displayed on any online search, hence your rate integrity is not affected. 

No commission. No fees. Good income.

The service offered by Hotelcard is completely free of charge for participating hotels as Hotelcards income comes exclusively from annual membership fees of end-customers. Hotelcard members are well known for their above average spending on food and services and not the typical bargain hunters. The maximum stay with 30% or 50% discount is 3 nights, afterwards only 10% discount apply.  

Full control over your distribution 

Hotelcard offers a state of the art user interface to hotels that makes management of inventory and bookings very easy. As a participating hotel you can choose yourself what discount levels to offer on what dates and you can apply limits or automated stop-sales that are based on your occupancy rate.  We are fully integrated with Hotel Spider, YieldPlanet, Vertical Booking and Kognitiv, to name but a few.

What other Hoteliers say about us

“Thanks to Hotelcard we can generate extra bookings for dates with low occupancy rates, making both guests and ourselves happy.”

Ruzica Dujmic
Resident Manager, TRAFO Hotel Baden

"Becoming part of the Hotelcard family was as easy and efficient as probably with no other partner. The handling with the extranet and especially the integrated yielding tool of Hotelcard in combination with the Hotel-Spider connection could not be easier and more comfortable. A great platform to increase the awareness of the hotel, to generate bookings and to know that there is a helpful team in the background".
