Question of the Week: Valentine's Day and romantic stays

I hope you're all having a good start to your February. And with Valentine's Day just around the corner, what better time to talk about romantic stays?

It's not all about February 14th, though. Honeymoons and couple getaways are year-round occasions and might even be a key driver for your business. And for partners just starting out, this occasion could be an untapped marketing opportunity.

Champagne and strawberries? Roses on the bed? Or maybe something more untraditional? If you have a special way of catering for couples, let's hear it! Share your tips and photos in the comments below.

No Valentine’s Day for me Laura, my Studio is not available to guests until the end of March. On Valentine’s Day my husband and I will probably go out for dinner....

Hi Laura.

I like to offer a special Deal for Easter / Valentines day or sometimes an romantic weekend. But how to do?Billedet indeholder sandsynligvis: soveværelse og indendørs

I prefer to give top quality, - a weekend deal Friday to Sunday, with romantic Dinner, 5 course, a good local Wine, welcome drink; aperitif and a romantic decorated room. Ass I show here.

I can offer, sold by Booking.com, Romantic weekend, From Friday evening to DSunday Morning, Dinner Saturday, for 149€ PER. PERSON (minimum 2 person pr. room)

But this is not possible with Booking.com (It is via my Local Tourist office)

IS IT POSSIBLE, BOOKING.COM CAN MAKE A "POP UP" Window on the Webside, where I can give special offer??

Looking forward to a positive answer from you Laura.

Laura, Communi…

Wow Lucy! What a romantic set-up. Even the lighting is perfect.

I looked into your question for you. Unfortunately there isn't yet a simple way of creating packages, but there is a work-around that you can do.
  1. Create a new room type, and put the "promotional deal" (for example, Valentine's Day) in the room description.
  2. Then build the room type, load manual rates and inventory for that room type.
I'd love to hear if any other partners have experience with doing this. Great question!
