The best way to explain why we signed up is ‘why not?’. It took minimal effort to onboard and the business model is simple.
The onboarding of our over 200 properties was incredibly easy with Impala. Our tech team didn’t have to do a thing — we had never experienced such a smooth process before.
Impala help us regain a bit more of the UK market and explore new avenues. The reservations are straightforward and don't put extra weight on our current operations.
Impala gives us the agility to discover and test new markets without the resources previously required.
We're so glad to work with Impala. Their booking process is great for our hotel.
We know a new way of doing things can seem complex at first. Here are answers to some of the questions our hotel clients most often ask about Open Distribution and working with us.
Open Distribution is a new business model that finally makes it fast and easy for any hotel and room seller in the world to work together. Enabled by modern API infrastructure, it replaces the dated third party systems that travel companies have had to rely on to do business. Impala’s product is the leader in Open Distribution and enables you to get started in less than 48h. Find out more about how Open Distribution can help your hotel in the video above.
No. Any hotel can work with Impala.
There's no hidden pricing with Impala: you only pay when you receive a booking. There's no minimum number of bookings and no setup fee. You agree commission with each room seller, and see exactly what you'll earn before guest arrival. Payment is guaranteed through a virtual card, and Impala only collects a small percentage when you receive a booking.
We’ve designed our onboarding process to be superfast and integration-free, and we do all the hard work. After an initial conversation with our account management team, we’ll get you live in less than 48h.
We gather your rates, availability and content from public sources. We check every booking to ensure rate integrity, and constantly update your listing by drawing from several data sources. We also collect your photography and other content from multiple sources to ensure your property is represented in the best possible light. You always have the option to adjust your content.
Simply sign in to your Impala dashboard. From here, you can see the room sellers you’re working with, the bookings they’ve delivered you and any deal requests they’ve sent you. You can then negotiate with room sellers to create deals that work for you.
If you’re already working with Impala and you’d like some help, you can contact us.
