How diverse is your distribution? Do you have all your eggs in one basket and rely on one or two channels for most of your online business? Depending too much on a few channels online can be risky.
Why not go beyond Expedia and Booking.com? Especially if you are an independent boutique hotel, there may be more relevant channels which match with your positioning and identity. However you will need to do some research to see which ones will work for you in terms of their main markets, hotels they represent and their geographical presence/reach.
