Stay Safe, Travel Later – A campaign to help hoteliers overcome the COVID-19 crisis
It was the third day of quarantine and we were sitting in a remote conference, thinking what we could do to help our member hotels to survive the financial losses of the coronavirus outbreak.
We're well aware that hospitality industry is one of the industries feeling the most immediate impact of the coronavirus outbreak. Resorts and hotels that were booked by both business and leisure travelers are constantly receiving cancellation calls. Multiple hotels have lost already over 80% of their reservations and many have decided to close their hotel temporarily to help control the spreading of the virus.
What if we helped independent hotels by creating a sales platform and encouraged travelers to buy hotel gift cards online for future travels?
After saying the idea out loud, it took only 3 days until the first draft of the gift card shop was out and the first hotel had joined. To help ensure hotels can keep their doors open also in the future, we support independent hotels by offering them a gift card shop for free.
So how does it work?
Then we build a unique page of your hotel on our campaign site: https://staysafe.valpashotels.net. You can also implement the gift card shop directly on your own website.
After that travelers can start buying your gift cards directly. We handle the money transfer every two weeks and all the sales are commission-free. We only charge the 5 % transfer fee, nothing else.
Sounds too good to be true? It definitely is. Don’t hesitate to contact us right away, and we will get your gift card shop running in no time.
Let’s fight the virus together.
