We need to talk about Cancellations
Cancellations are a growing threat to hotel profitability. As they rise year-over-year, forecasting and pricing decisions will continue to be undermined. This will magnify inefficiencies, increase costs and erode margins across businesses.
Until now hoteliers have not had the means to accurately assess cancellation risk and proactively mitigate booking cancellations. It’s time to embrace tools that not only make this a reality but drill right down to guest level for richer insight.

Beyond Book Direct
“Book Direct” remains prominent across marketing campaigns, websites, and booking engines, these two words became the slogan for hotel e-commerce.
Yet guests never need to think about distribution channels. Its time to evolve the guest journey online and evolve personalization to nurture guests to book on your hotel website, rather than other expensive channels without them needing to question why.
Digital Strategy Secrets
By selecting the right tactics, you’ll amplify your brand message, and reduce your cost of sale. An effective digital marketing strategy will result in the cost of sale from your brand website typically between 6-10%. This of course depends on location & star rating; with 5-star properties having the lowest cost of sale. Though of course, reducing operating costs by continuously testing tactics is always the goal. Compared to OTA commissions, this is a huge cost saving for hotels.

The Connected Hotelier
With so much technology available how do you determine what’s right for your hotel? Too much technology actually has the danger of making your Revenue Managers’ and General Managers’ lives more difficult.
Regardless of the platforms you choose to integrate into your hotel website, it’s paramount that you embrace technology which facilitates a personalised, engaging guest experience. Make sure you take customer intent into consideration.
6 Principles of Personalisation for Hotel Websites
When you enter a hotel website for a weekend break, a family trip or a business meeting, chances are the contents will be exactly the same. In fact, one could argue that a downloadable PDF might be almost the same experience.
Our initial goal was to prove that a hotel website could (and should) be much more than a mere digital copy of a brochure. We felt that hotel websites needed to move out of the passive brochure model into something much more personalised, that could make a much better use of all the technologies available.
And, over the years, we have learned a lot. Today, Avvio’s booking engine technology and web design are among the most advanced personalisation platforms available in the hotel industry.
