What are the ways to show country wise different price in local currency on your booking engine?
Hoteliers in several countries come up with this request/question when they actually want to serve their local market and cover a demand on their local currency without having to deal with conversion exchange rates that change all the time and have an affect to the direct sales in their origin market.In particular they want to be able to control the ‘display-currency’ in specific rate plans when their main default sell currency in all other rate plans handled is a different one.
A great example comes from the Egypt Market. Usual default currency for hotel’s rates display is $USD .However hotel is of need to display to the local market the same rate plans in ￡EGP without though the booking engine to convert the $USD to ￡EGP – Their aim is to set in the booking engine flat direct rates in ￡EGP and those should be shown by Ip recognition only to Egyptian visitors.
BookOnlineNow being a global leader among the Online Booking Engines has developed the Localize feature for hotels that do wish to control both ‘display-currency’ and ‘transaction-currency’ in their local currencies regartless which is the default currency they initially use globally .
