Boosting direct bookings with the right direct booking benefits

Offering attractive direct booking benefits is not just a complementary strategy - it's a potential game-changer

Jun 13, 2023

Directly competing on price becomes a tall order, which often hotels and resorts find challenging to win. So, finding an alternative way to draw direct bookings becomes essential, especially for high-end hotels and luxury resorts.

Key takeaways

  • It's not just the room rates that influence guests' booking preferences - most luxury travelers seek the best value for money rather than securing the cheapest deal;
  • They are keen on experiencing the luxury, the exclusivity, and the unique services that make their stay memorable. This is where a fine selection of direct booking benefits can boost direct conversions;
  • A new survey indicates that resort credits, which guests can use for spa treatments, dining, transport, and other amenities, are the top-ranking benefit when paired with a spa treatment discount, tallying 8.42% of responses.
