RateBoard is a very easy and intuitive tool, which helps a lot in forecasting and managing prices. Calculations with spreadsheets are definitely things of the past.

The leisure hotel industry has its unique characteristics, which of course also need to be taken into account by software solutions. I have been familiar with RateBoard since its early years. In my opinion, there is no better Revenue Management Software for the holiday hotel industry. In the Falkensteiner Group, we work very successfully with RateBoard. We noticed that other systems were primarily designed for city hotels and therefore, did not completely cover our needs.

Several years ago, I already noticed for myself how complex it is to maintain prices across different distribution channels. RateBoard now gives hoteliers and accommodation providers the opportunity to easily facilitate these time-consuming processes and thus work more efficiently.

It is extremely important for a Revenue Management System to precisely know its target group. Only then can the needs of the users be optimally covered. RateBoard offers an intelligent algorithm and a team of highly qualified experts. These are just two of the features that make RateBoard the perfect solution for the leisure hotel industry.

The Holiday Calendar

Holiday seasons, public holidays and events are key factors for creating effective pricing strategies in the leisure hotel industry.

RateBoard Eventfilter

School holidays, long weekends and events have an especially large impact on market demand in the leisure hotel industry. By continuously updating, RateBoard always provides the latest holiday periods from various nations.

Events and holidays must be taken into account during price calculations, allowing RateBoard's forecasting model to generate an optimal booking curve for each day. For example, if 50% of your hotel guests in summer are from southern Germany, the start of the school holidays in Bavaria will be a significant factor. With this knowledge, discontinuities can be modelled more effectively and booking curves can be displayed in more detail, leading to an increase in revenue and occupancy.
By adding custom events, temporary peaks in demand can also be included in the forecast. The algorithm learns from the events and transfers them to the following year. As a result, it is possible to accurately predict sales peaks and calculate the best price.



RateBoard knows when and in which regions school holidays are happening.


Public Holidays

RateBoard Algorithm


In terms of booking cycles, the leisure hotel sector cannot be compared to the city hotel industry. Key performance indicators such as length of stay, booking times, or cancellations differ significantly.

The data science expert team at RateBoard has managed to develop an intelligent algorithm specifically for the leisure hotel industry. In addition to the scientific calculation of the algorithm, the focus lies in the early identification of peaks. This ensures that the optimal price for the market will be communicated in a timely manner, thereby generating maximum revenue.

The distinctive booking behaviour in the leisure hotel industry requires early identification of periodic peaks. This is the only way to perfectly detect busy booking periods and use them for the best price recommendations. Our specific focus enables us to develop a tailored algorithm, adapted to the needs of leisure hotels. Due to our large hotel portfolio, we can easily transfer previously accumulated knowledge to our new customers.

Nowadays, it is imperative to keep an eye on the entire market at all times. Consequently, RateBoard's daily rate shopping provides hoteliers with valuable information about price developments of their most important competitors. This enables a better assessment of the current market demand of a specific destination in relation to the position of your hotel. With this data, hotel prices can be adjusted more quickly and accurately according to the latest market situation.

Why Revenue Management in the leisure hotel industry?

Increased spontaneity

Behaviour in booking practices has also significantly changed in the leisure hotel industry. More and more reservations are made on short notice and hotels have to offer the most flexible cancellation policies possible.

This trend was further intensified by the Covid19 pandemic. Especially in these times, flexibility and agility are key capabilities to be able to guarantee a quick reaction to market changes and thus ensure the hotel’s competitiveness.

Merging of seasons

The use of a fixed price list has never been more of an obstacle than it is at the moment. Seasons are becoming increasingly mixed up. In the leisure hotel industry, it is no longer possible to make a clear distinction between high-, low- and mid-season.

Relying on intuition in terms of pricing is hardly possible any more. The use of data-based solutions such as RateBoard is essential.
