SEMINAR’s DESCRIPTION

As we begin to rebuild our hotel industry following the seismic eruption caused by COVID, we are seeing some very encouraging trends emerge with an increasing number of travelers opting to call and book directly with hotels. But while this long-awaited trend is all well and good, how equipped is your reservations team to meet the demands of savvy travelers who call to negotiate rates and complimentary upgrades, seek fast, efficient and updated travel advice as well as ask a flood of questions on destination, location, facilities and activities.

This significant shift in the way travelers search and book hotels transforms the reservation role into a highly sophisticated sales competency. This course will equip reservation agents with the tools and techniques to deliver confidence, reduce guest uncertainty, uphold rate integrity, manage negotiations and justify WHY the caller should select your property and WHY the caller should choose a higher room category.

If Hotels are to reap the benefits of their “Book Direct” mantra, now is the time to elevate your reservation processes , build engagement and trust and create such an inspiring impression of your property that will not only enable you to generate more bookings with better margins, but will also set you up for long term success as more and more guests recognize that approaching the hotel directly will result in an enhanced stay experience.  This course has become a global best-seller in generating a stellar reservations experience that takes power away from intermediaries and gives it back to the hotelier.
