Increasing Frequency of No-Shows
Good morning everyone. We're curious to find out if anyone else is experiencing an increasing number of no-shows post COVID deconfinement?
In preparation - On Booking.com's advice - we now accept last minute bookings without requiring card details and lo and behold we have seen 2 trends: 1) the number of no-shows has gone up significantly and 2) they are all from guests that we cannot charge because we did not stipulate needing card details.
Do we really generate more reservations becsaue we don't need card details or are we just getting the tyre-kickers who will look for a cheaper price anywhere else and cancel their bookings with impunity? What do yo think?
Thanks for sharing your experiences, UF.
