The Partner formula is completely free, and will remain free. No fees, no commissions, no surprises. Hotels signing up as iHi partners get direct links to their hotel website from iHi directory pages.
This means that hotels do not have to pay any commission on bookings made by customers who come in through iHi.
To sign up as a partner, first check that your hotel or guest-house meets the iHi quality criteria. You will need to add a text-link back to the iHi site from your website's home page or page footer.
The indirect formula - no listing fees, no annual charge.
Hotels listed indirectly do not get a direct link to their own website. Instead iHi will send visitors through to the hotel's page on either Booking.com or on Hotels.com.
This formula is for hotels that do not have a website, or prefer to get bookings through a booking portal, rather than directly – specially visitors from other countries who do not necessarily speak the same language.
There will be no way of knowing if visitors were originally sent to your portal page by iHi or by whatever other way. For hotels, they will just be reservations from Booking.com or from Hotels.com, and normal commission will be charged by the portal (typically at least 15%). There is no additional charge from iHi..
The commercial formula is similar to the partner formula, but there is no obligation to include a text link back to iHi from the hotel's home page. The listing fee covers the calendar year from 01/01 until 31/12. Discounts may apply in the first year of listing, depending on when the hotel signs up.
iHi links directly to the hotel's website, so hotels avoid the costly commissions charged by reservation sites on any customers coming from iHi.

Commission and the small hotel...How much are you losing in commission paid to online booking hotel booking portals?
A small hotel with an theoretical annual turnover on room sales of 200,000 €uros can easily lose 20,000 € in commission. That's 10% of turnover, and a lot more than 10% of profit margin. Some of this can be avoided by listing a hotel free of charge with iHi, just as long as it meets our criteria. Send us a short objective description of your hotel (no hype) and a small photo too if you want. As long as your submission is approved, all you need to do in order to be listed with iHi is to provide a short link back to iHi from your hotel website. We'll provide further details when we have approved your proposal.
