The industry is going through unusual times filled with unforeseen difficulties; But like they say, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going!"

Tough hoteliers like yourself are lucky to have a tough partner like ResAvenue, which maintains systems and services at the highest level even during these trying times. As per our contingency plan, ResAvenue has smoothly transitioned to a remote work scenario to ensure that our partner hotels offer the best of services at all times.

And to top that, we have waived monthly subscription charges for the month of April 2020, to help ease your financial burden during this crisis.

There are a number of initiatives that a tough hotel like yours can take in this downtime, to plan and achieve efficiencies for the future.

We strongly recommend that you utilize this time to plan strategies to bring back business with a flourish and improve sanitization when you open your hotel's doors again.

1) Guest safety is paramount to you, and you need to show the guests how much you care.
  • Organize daily temperature and wellness checks of staff before they log in to roster
  • Provide masks and gloves to your staff
  • Ensure hand sanitizers are available in each room and located at all public spaces
  • Sanitize surfaces and steam clean linens and furnishing.
Your comprehensive and documented prevention plan must help ensure that your employees and guests remain well protected while on your property so as to create a positive, safe experience at your hotel.

2) To entice guest back to your property, you need to plan special marketing strategies involving:
  • Promotions, discounts and rates
  • Special offers in terms of free upgrades or free services with stay.
ResAvenue offers hoteliers a range of advanced marketing solutions such as discount codes, coupons and promotion features that enable you to attract attention to your offerings and stimulate sales even in periods of low demand.

3) If you have faced many cancellations, offer your guests a raincheck instead of a refund.
Alternatively, you can offer them a huge discount for them to rebook within a certain time.

4) Track events that have been cancelled.
Offer special discounts to visitors for these events whenever they get back on track.

5) Targeted marketing campaigns communicating all the special ways you are ensuring the best stay for your guests.
You also need to communicate the best value that you are offering in terms of discounts and freebies.
