Get more direct bookings with The Guide

We're building the world's largest travel guide, powered by the local knowledge of tourism businesses like yours.

Designed for Independents

The Guide is designed for Hotels, Hostels, Activities, Tours, Restaurants, Cafes & Bars. We're starting coverage with Latin America, SE Asia and Africa. 

Features

Everything you need to get more direct bookings.

Direct Bookings

Let's make booking direct the new normal

It’s more important than ever to encourage travellers to travel responsibly by booking direct.

This helps to keep money within the local communities they visit. It also lets businesses invest more in providing a great service, rather than paying high commission fees to online booking platforms.

No Commission Fees

You won't pay commission on bookings through The Guide.

Works With Any Platform

You can link to your existing online booking site if you have one, or use our booking forms.
