The realization rate is the percentage of how many successful bookings you've had. Every time you accept a booking and run a trip, it counts positively towards your realization rate. Every time you decline, or cancel a booking, the realization rate is negatively affected.
It is the most important factor when it comes to ranking listings on FishingBooker. Our algorithms take into account a whole range of factors when it comes to ranking, as you can see here, but the realization rate counts more than any other.
- Make sure your listing and trip details are accurate – pay particular attention to your boat capacity, trip seasonality, and prices.
- Keep your calendar up-to-date.
- Reschedule trips that may otherwise be canceled – in the event of bad weather or if something has come up for you or the customer.
A high realization rate is also one of the criteria for our Angler's Choice Award, which will make you stand out to potential customers even more.
