We hope you are well,
Thank you for your support in promoting Hotels.com.
I’m writing to inform you of a change to the Hotels.comprogramme from 21st December, 2015. From this datecommission paid to partners will be on the total booked amount, excluding taxes and fees. All reporting will reflect this; the total revenue shown for each sale in the network will be the total booked amount (excluding taxes and fees).
For cashback partners it is very important to communicate clearly to your users that the cashback will be applied to the hotel cost, minus taxes and fees.
This will not have an impact on customers who use a voucher code. Currently voucher code discounts are applied to the total booked amount and do not include the taxes and fees.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
