The lower the COPE percentage, the costlier the business is for the hotel and the less room revenue remains, after costs are factored out. To move the needle back to a healthier balance, following Loyalty Contribution % is a key component to fulfilling the hotel’s optimal business mix. Loyalty Contribution % is the proportion of room night demand associated with a loyalty membership, and vital to continually filling the hotel through direct channels and with repeat business. When reported by Kalibri Labs, this Loyalty Contribution % only includes the brands that have a formal loyalty program.
