No. buuteeq is NOT a commission based website that tries to aggregate traveler's searches for hotels in your area. Instead, buuteeq is a solution that you use and manage yourself to create materials that are branded exclusively with your hotel's name, logo, and color scheme/look-and-feel. With buuteeq your hotel can build its brand awareness and credibility so that when customers evaluate your property they come away impressed and with all the information they need to make a purchase decision, whether with you directly or via an existing channel partner (such as online travel agencies or agents) with whom your hotel already has a relationship.
