How a Hot Tub Can Increase Your Holiday Bookings
As with any business in order to succeed and set yourself above the competition it is important to offer something different, a hot tub could very well be the thing your rental property needs.
It’s a known fact that Brits are going mad for hot tubs, with the industry seeing a boom in recent years.
More and more people are becoming educated about the Hot Tubs and the benefits of hydrotherapy, making them popular with people suffering from chronic pain, back pain, and arthritis.
We are still seeing the majority of customers purchasing a hot tub for the social benefits and pure relaxation. Living in the UK isn’t quite like living in the Costa del Sol but having access to a hot tub gives us an excuse to enjoy the outdoors, as well as providing us with a much needed break from modern day distractions like mobile phones, social media, and television.
There has been huge amount of research carried out into what search terms and key words people use when looking for places to go on holiday. Research shows that the most commonly used key words when searching for a hotel to stay at are “deal” and “cheap”!
The key words for holiday rental were “hot tubs” or “villas”. Research also shows that people are more likely to choose a property to stay at with a hot tub as opposed to without with 57% of bookings looking for a hot tub.
So why can a hot tub increase your holiday bookings? It will help to drive more people to your site, and by giving your property that WOW! Factor. Now you can offer your guests a relaxing experience, which they may not be able to get at home.
Since your customers will have enjoyed their stay, you’re also more likely to acquire repeat bookings. Also think about their social media, tweeting from their very own Hot Tub!, your guests may be more inclined to post pictures of themselves having a few glasses of wine in a hot tub, rather than sitting inside watching the TV. This again should drive more custom your way.
