In This Episode, Inder Reveals

  • How his company, HotelBids.com, is a promising alternative to the traditional OTAs, allowing the consumer to bid on the amount they want to pay, while putting the power back into the hotel’s hands to accept or decline that offer.
  • How he got the idea for the company, his vision, and how it is different from other OTAs, including a flat rate for commissions that’s significantly lower than the competition, and no contracts.
  • How he plans to compete with the billion dollar OTAs, where his funding is coming from, and his funding strategy moving forward.
  • His philosophy on who owns the customer in their transaction … one I wish other OTAs and Franchisors would embrace.
