1. Remove sources of customer friction
It is just not possible to have every customer the perfect customer. We all know that customer friction is any problem that adversely affects a guests experience with your establishment – the booking phase is one place you do not want any frustration – when they go online to book with you a bad experience there will reflect with them as to what the rest of the experience will be like.
It is worth the effort to try and locate your site and do a test booking – go to other sites and see where they are better than you. Streamline the process and simplify. There are many good booking engines out there. Get one that works for your clients.
And what are the advantages?
The most objective advantage is the fast, online reservation in secure environment, the possibility to order additional services and convenient payment methods. Another strong advantage is the complete range of all types of rooms and the possibility to combine them, especially in case of bookings for more people. The reservation portals do not offer all types of rooms that are available in the hotel.
The most important advantage, which is one of the most popular advantage when choosing accommodation, is the possibility of obtaining a discount, either on the accommodation price or services.
