Why Hotels need to shift from Traditional Selling models to a Flexible Booking Platform
Every hotel has a standard check-in and check-out time policy. But have you analyzed to its core that travelers dislike this traditional arrival/departure time anymore?
Unlike a typical day use model in which hotel’s sell their rooms “by the hour” to new guests and the room has to be re-cleaned. By up-selling flexible check-ins and check-outs all you’re doing is simply extending the stay of your current guests. As a result, you don’t need to re-clean the room.
The new age guests are increasingly willing to pay to check into their rooms early or check-out late.
But how profitable it is to sell early check-ins and late check-outs to your guests?
Consequently, there’s no additional cost associated with this revenue. All revenue generated drops to your bottom line. As a result, this activity will increase your effective ADR. And the best part is you don’t need to do anything, if you use the STAYFLEXI PMS for this, everything gets automated.
However, you can turn this into an opportunity. With flexible slot based inventory management, you can offer guests arriving early mornings , or late evenings the ability to pay extra to check-in early. The key is to offer them the flexibility the day before they arrive so they don’t have to worry about it.
Stayflexi’s intelligent platform understands the availability of rooms and housekeeping schedules in your property and automatically upsells for early checkins and late checkouts to your customers.
