COVID-19 update. 3 key things all partners need to know
I want to share some updates about COVID-19 with you.
Government regulations continue to evolve around the world in response to the Coronavirus. To help you navigate this, we created a special landing page to keep all the useful, up-to-date information in one place.
This page contains resources we’ve developed to help you respond to the impact of Coronavirus-related travel restrictions, including advice for dealing with reduced demand and increased cancellation rates.
If we sum up the key things we need to do in the next few months, they will be:
1. Prepare for uncertainty
I’m sure you are already experiencing last-minute changes and you will probably see it more. Guests want to travel, and we know this but they want to do it in the safest way possible. Now it is as important as ever to be ready to handle cancellations and no-shows - and to give guests extra flexibility when the time is right.
2. Get your property ready
Even while travel restrictions are affecting your day-to-day business, there are still ways you can prepare your property to maximise new bookings once the situation begins to improve. Learn more about availability here.
3. Use our insights
Data and insights can help you make the best decisions for your business, particularly in difficult times like these. That’s why we’ve added relevant information and advice to the Opportunity Centre in the extranet.
The pandemic still hits us all, but we can mitigate its dangers - and prepare for the future - by taking steps today. The steps we recommend are outlined in our new page here: https://partner.booking.com/en-gb/coronavirus
