PrivateDeal rethinks Hotel Day-Use Bookings
Finding solutions in the face of the COVID-19 crisis
Lausanne - In a hotel environment strongly shaken by the COVID-19 outbreak, PrivateDeal reinvents a practice often overlooked by the industry: day-use bookings. This new service is part of a process of renewal and innovation driven by a profound paradigm shift within the hotel industry.
This innovative model affords customers the opportunity to book a room or service online for a short period of time during the day and pay based on the number of hours spent in the establishment. Behind the scenes, the hotelier has the freedom to choose which rooms and services he wants to offer for sale for day rental, for which duration and under what price conditions (fixed prices or flexible prices in smart negotiation).
"Today's customers are sensitive to a whole new range of hotel experiences, explains Isabelle Jan, co-founder of PrivateDeal. For the hotelier, day-use bookings are an excellent opportunity to optimize the profitability of his/her establishment while remaining as close as possible to customer needs."
