Maximize booking potential with a long-term inventory strategy

In a recent survey, 25% of Expedia Group travellers reported that they are comfortable booking travel more than a year in advance.*

Maximize your booking potential with Expedia Group by adding rates and availability at least a year in advance.

To better meet guests’ changing expectations today, you’ll want to adapt your distribution strategy on Expedia Group websites to offer as much availability as possible.

As you finalize your distribution and inventory plans for the year, now is a great time to incorporate long-term booking strategies. Adding rates and availability on Expedia Group websites a year or more in advance can help you attract guests who are looking to book early. And those early bookings can make a big impact on your business!
