Users can sign up on the Stayker site for free, pick hotels they want to offer or leave all hotels open in the area. They can then add the booking link to their website and social media platforms. Stayker either replaces or supplements group contracted inventory with no cost, no liabilities, no contracts and no rooming lists, Barker said.
“The planner can still handpick hotels, and set up an event booking site in minutes, and (this is big) make a commission on every booking if they like (commissions start with our very inexpensive paid plans),” Barker explained. “Plus, we handle all the customer service and give you a report on all your bookings afterward. Hotels are winners too—they can offer private group rates by uploading to the GDS and not have inventory tied up in group contracts. Win-win-win.”
