Expedia: A strategic ally for hoteliers in Curacao seeking immediate demand
SEATTLE - The Expedia group, one of the world’s largest online travel companies, is proud to be a valued ally for hoteliers in times of unforeseen circumstances that make it difficult for partners to reach booking goals. With talented local market management teams throughout the region consistently collaborating with hotel partners to implement effective strategies that generate awareness and increase demand, during times of stress Expedia showcases immense value to partners.
Hotels that partner with Expedia gain access to the company’s innovative technological tools which help hoteliers reach their goals. Expedia offers hotel partners in the Caribbean the Best Sell Tonight app and a full calendar of 24-hour sales that help partners take advantage and increase last-minute bookings. In addition, the Expedia group offers hotel partners the following tools to help reach partner’s intended goals and fill rooms, including:
- Members-only and mobile deals.
- Deals of the Day in Hotels.com.
- Daily Deals in Expedia.com and Travelocity.com (available as standalone or package).
- Super Saver Rate Plan (available as standalone or package)
- Rolling Last Minute, e.g., bookings 0-15 days can get up to 40% off (available as standalone or package).
“Because Expedia puts immense value on the well-being and relationship with our partners, we make sure to always keep in mind ways for them to increase last-minute bookings in case the trajectory for that period of time is not reaching expected goals,” said Demetrius Canton, market management director for the Caribbean. “Expedia is a strategic resource that can advise partners during hard times, and with our creative offerings and innovate tech solutions, we also provide answers and help boost partner sales.”
Local Expedia group market managers are also available to offer insights to hotel partners and give recommendations that may help boost last-minute bookings. This support system is in place to help navigate any issues that our hotel partners may come up against and help overcome them.
On February 23, the Expedia group rolled out the Expedia Partner Central App in multiple languages including Spanish, French and Dutch to allow partners to manage their business with Expedia anytime, anywhere. The real-time, critical data helps partners stay informed on the performance of their hotel and implement any deals to increase last-minute bookings when sales are not going as planned.
