Selling Early Check-ins is More Profitable than you Might Imagine.
We have already covered why guests are increasingly willing to pay to check into their rooms early or check out late in our previous blog post and how much money as a hotelier you can generate from this technique using our free calculator.
But how profitable is selling early check-ins and late check-outs to your guests? It turns out, very.
Unlike day use models in which hotel’s sell their rooms "by the hour” to new guests and the room has to re-cleaned after this guest has left. By upselling flexible check-ins and check-outs all you’re doing is simply extending the stay of your current guests. As a result, you don’t need to re-clean the room.
Consequently, there’s no additional cost associated with this revenue. All revenue generated drops to your bottom line. As a result, this activity will increase your effective ADR by up to 4%. And the best part is you don’t need to do anything, if you use the HotelFlex service for this, everything is automated.
