Small Hotels Boost Business with Loyalty & Reward Programs

Loyalty and reward programs can help make up the difference between having average occupancy rates or a fully booked calendar. In fact, according to Phocuswright April 2015 report, (Dis)Loyalty and the U.S. Leisure Traveler, “62% of frequent travelers used hotel loyalty programs.” So, if the majority of travelers are taking advantage of these, shouldn’t your hotel be on board to offer one as well?

Maximising income (retail price revenue management, playing with their own profits), for which being able to set the final sales price is key.
Strong control that the product will not sell on another channel at a lower rate (parity check) and react in the event that it does happen. Read More »
