Spike in travel- Rising urge for staycations

Updated: Feb 18, 2022

The tourism industry is ready to bounce back and there is renewed hope as the health crisis is finally easing off. To help hoteliers get back in business soon here’s what can one do- hoteliers can run an exceptional offer and prepare to give their guests an even better welcome.

Giving your guests access to all the information they need for their stay, on their device, is a real asset for your establishment.

As said in our previous blog, The hospitality industry should make a way to digitalization. From arrival instructions to on-site services through local recommendations, the digital welcome booklet gives them all the information they need in just one step. E-Concierge features can also be integrated into the service, such as the pre-stay questionnaire, express check-in, online inventory, customer messaging, push notifications, satisfaction survey, activity booking requests, or any order process or requirement specific to your establishment.

Promotional offers can be like- get 3 months' service free of charge (terms and conditions applied) on all subscriptions of one year starting from some money. As you can see, the service offered is fully customizable and includes a management area with a wide range of options.

So, therefore, it would help a lot of hoteliers in the engagement process and it will eventually attract the audience because revenge travel seeks to be the hope for the travel sector and tourism as we know already. And by this providing, something extra more to your guest for the attraction would not cost much and hoteliers can get back to their business much easier.

It's just the technique one needs to keep in mind, that is what keeps you unique from your competitors and will help you survive in the long run.

Let's now understand what actually means by this trending buzzword- Revenge Travel.

Simply, It is the urge to travel after being in lockdown for an extended period of time. People are frustrated in many ways as everybody is struggling and maintaining pace being at home.
