Price Comparison Widget

Supercharge Your Vacation Rentals Website

ight now, visitors to your website can find out all about your properties and can get a quote for specific dates. But what's to stop them drifting off to the OTA sites where they have a wider choice?

Nothing grabs attention quite like a really good deal and a really good deal is just what you offer, so, let's hear it!

For every guest visiting your website

for every quote generated

the Price Comparison can show automatically.

What does it cost?

Having the HiChee Price Comparison widget on your website costs from $0.25 to $2.00 per listing per month. Most commonly, it's $1.00 per listing per month. It depends on whether you already publish your listings to HiChee and are on one of our promotion plans (Pay-per-inquiry, Pay-per-booking or Subscription) and the extent of widget customization required. Here's a table to explain:


How can it be customized?

The following are offered without extra cost:

Color scheme

Your branding on the "On this website" row

Initial position on screen

Active only on selected listings

And these customizations are available but at the higher price band:

Replace the HiChee link with your own text and/or link

OTA View buttons removed or behaviour altered

How do we get it?

First, if you're not already a HiChee customer, first you should set up your account:

FAQ

Q: Where can I see it working?

A: Have a look at https://www.aliiresorts.com/vrp/unit/WAILEA_EKOLU_401_-956-1 and fill in your dates and the number of adults, then click on [Check Availability]


Q: What does it take to install it?

A: Just insert our snippet into your listing page <head> section. It should take your "tech guy" no longer than two minutes.


Q: Will we need to maintain and configure it?

A: No. That's all done on our side.


Q: Can we remove it if we need to?

A: Yes, you can remove the widget code or just ask us to disable it.


Q: Does this enable you to track the visitor?

A: No. We do get the IP address of the visitor but that doesn't tell us anything useful.


Q: How do I know that there's nothing malicious in the widget?

A: Just ask your "tech guy" to inspect the inserted javascript. It just picks up dates and the listing ID from your page and makes requests to our server and then displays the response.


Q: Is it legal that you access the price data from the OTAs?

A: We have looked extensively into the legality of the price comparison concept. It is clear that price comparison is a fair use of proprietary data. Price Comparison Widgets are firmly established in the hotel sector (see https://blog.netaffinity.com/price-check-widgets-drive-direct-bookings/) yet the price discrepancies are much bigger on rentals.
