Treovi premiers commission-free hotel booking engine for travelers


, the recently launched free hotel distribution and booking channel, announced having opened the doors for guests to search and book hotels totally free. Designed to simplify and economize online travel reservations, the Geneva, Switzerland based startup rolls out their latest features.

The world’s first 100% no-commission hotel reservation system committed a bold promise: “absolutely no commissions or listing fees for hoteliers, and no transaction costs, of any kind, for hotel guests.” In only one month since it launched for hoteliers, Treovi has added over 1500 hotels to its inventory – an impressive number for a soft launch. Customers can now compare up to four hotels at the same destination, and see their exact location on the map as well.

Co-Founder Michal Wrobel had this to say in answer to many questions about how the innovative startup will get revenue without charging fees: "These products and services are ready to be introduced however they can be introduced only depending on how fast Treovi grows, and scales the market both on reservations and hotel registrations levels. We have a set of ideas for other products, but those we want hoteliers to comment and collaborate on in the future, as we want to provide comprehensive solutions that will really suit their needs."

Long gone are the days when hotel owners had to pay a fortune in distribution and big OTA fees and commissions, just to have their inventory sell. Treovi is now free for all hotels, be they independent or chains. But what’s even more appealing for travelers all over the world, is that Treovi doesn’t charge guests even the smallest credit card processing fees, let alone other commissions, when they use Treovi to book a hotel. The simple beauty of Treovi is:

  • The public beta launch opens Treovi for client bookings (previously, Treovi was only open for hotels to register upload their inventory)
  • Treovi doesn’t charge any commissions from hotels or customers – it’s 100% free for everyone
  • Treovi is the first free hotel search and booking engine opened to both independent hotels and hotel chains

Similar to other hotel booking engines, users can refine search by price range (low/medium/high), but Treovi’s proprietary system prevents travelers from missing better options for “them” which may be 3-4 dollars more expensive than most search filters would allow for.

The current open beta is a significantly simplified variant of the coming Treovi service. Over the next 60 days, Treovi will announce other interesting, exciting features, which refine user experience on the site. Hoteliers can already benefit from a straightforward UI that enables them to set up hotel profiles and upload their inventory – including hotel descriptions, photos, room availability and rates – absolutely free of charge.
