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.
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.
