“Future Flex Available Dates”
Future Flex Available Dates”:
New smart feature in Price comparison tool & Remarketing
According to a recent survey, the majority of users leave the booking process on a hotel site, claiming that they didn’t find any dates available or after seeing the final price. However, 87% of them say that they consider returning to the reservation. Let’s see what a hotel website can do about that.
Why do customers leave?
They leave after seeing the final price. Customers tend to compare prices with other sites before buying. That’s when they realize that travel sites have the bad habit of adding additional costs and fees during the reservation.
The other reason why customers choose to leave and search on other sites is the update of the availability. Not being able to find prices on the dates they search, makes them abandon the booking process.
What do we suggest?
Compare and display online prices between two sets of dates
Several properties are losing customers due to the fact that when a visitor enters their site he or she doesn’t easily find availability, rates or suggested future dates.
The new smart feature of Abouthotelier’s Price Comparison Tool “Future Available Flex dates”, significantly improves the visitor’s search before the visitor even browses or leaves your site.
How does this work?
Let’s suppose you are the customer and enter the official website of a property, which has no availability or prices for today.
In this case, the new feature will display the popular future dates and prices available to your site visitor in one of the following ways:
a) based on search criteria and clicks made by previous visitors on the property’s page
b) based on the next “specific” available dates you want to display.
c) based on the actual picture of future available dates
What will you succeed by this?
First and foremost, your site visitors will be able to instantly and easily get a picture of your availability plan and rates.
Then you will make it easier for them, with just a simple step, to continue to a direct reservation. All these only through your website and with a powerful price check widget.
In addition to this, you will be able to analyze your visitors’ searches, and at any future date they visit your site again, they will be shown a search recognition message directing them to the selected dates they have searched for!
What is the purpose of this?
The purpose of all this is, of course, the right direct booking experience that your visitors should have. The experience they find in large sales networks or channels (such as Booking.com, Expedia.com, etc.) but not on your website …. until today.
So, do you really want to turn your visitors into direct bookings via your website?
Do you want to display to your visitors the real picture of your online prices, availability and comments before they even leave your website?
Abouthotelier with the Price comparison tool “Ratestrip” gives you this opportunity at the right time with the right cost.
