Business travelers make up a huge percentage of all travelers in the US. If you’re a hotel owner or property manager, it’s a good idea to figure out how you can get more of these travelers to stay at your hotel. If someone needs to make frequent trips to your city, they may decide to stay with you every time they visit. Learn how to attract more business travelers to your hotel.
Install EV Chargers
Business travelers as a demographic overlap with electric vehicle (EV) owners, who tend to be upper-middle-class men. By installing EV chargers on your property, you’ll attract more guests who drive their own EVs or rent them while traveling. You can even decide to add free EV charging to your guest experience packages to make these guests feel special.
Funding for EV Chargers
If the price of installing EV chargers is a little daunting, consider checking out the various government EV charging station incentives available. Some of them offer thousands of dollars to help increase the number of EV chargers in the country.
The easier it is to book with your hotel, the more likely it is that people will stay with you. Make sure that you optimize your website for all devices and that you have a “Book Now” button available on every screen. If people have to figure out how to navigate your site, chances are they’ll keep shopping for another location to stay at.
Having high-speed internet really should be a basic requirement in the 21st century, but it merits mentioning anyway. If people can’t hold video conferences and check their emails from your hotel, they won’t return. And even if you already have high-speed internet, it never hurts to make sure that connection is as reliable as possible.
Follow these steps to attract more business travelers to your hotel. Business travelers tend to be efficient, tech-savvy people, and they appreciate businesses with the same mindset.
