Early Bird Promotion

Hello everyone

Regarding the topic, in setting up an early bird promotion, we have to set " booking days in advance". Which is more effective whether to set higher numbers of days or lower numbers of days?

For example, we are now in May, and I would like to set up an early bird promotion for July and setting the advance booking days to about 7days or setting the days about 40 days, which will be more effective? If the traveling dates is only for July, then both types of promotion can book for July. Which is more effective?

Dear Frontofficethehotelnova,

It depends on how your market works. If you're a high seasonal resort, having 20-30 day booking days in advance is good. If you're a city based hotel, which has many guests booking a week maximum in advance, then you might want to set it to 7 days.

Hope this helps,
