MUMBAI: Last month, two Bengaluru-based IT engineers paid Rs 6 lakh online to a Chennai travel agency that sent them fake plane tickets and canceled their real hotel reservation to pocket the money. A police case has been filed in Thrissur, Kerala.
Two people registered as travel agents on the Sulekha mobile app with fake numbers. They contacted customers with huge discount offers, booked and sent their flight tickets by WhatsApp and received payments. The duo then canceled the tickets and disconnected their cell phones. A Delhi professor who was cheated out of Rs 1.5 lakh in foreign airfares filed a complaint with the capital’s police, who solved the case in April
Last May, a Ravi Singh paid Rs 5,600 online to “Travilook.in” for a Lucknow-Mumbai ticket. In July, another person, Akil Kumar, paid for a Hyderabad-Vijaywada ticket on ‘Travolook.in’. Their tickets were later canceled by the airlines, and the two passengers received no refund, says consumercomplaintscourt.com, a non-profit NGO.
Airfare and hotel prices have never been higher, as has pent-up demand for travel, making this an environment ripe for “holiday fraud”. According to TransUnion, a US credit reporting agency, the percentage of suspected digital fraud attempts against the travel and leisure industry has increased by 68.4% worldwide.
“In India too, similar trends are seen,” Amit said. revivalDirector, mFilterIt, a global ad fraud detection and prevention company.
A recent study by the company found that the top frauds in the Indian travel industry today are account takeovers, fake travel websites/app cloning and airline “bait” deals. and switch”. “Popular apps are cloned and users unknowingly download them to book flight tickets. The app malware takes control of the device,” Relan said.
A Delhi resident who was looking to book a helicopter flight online to Vaishno Devi came across a hotel website that offered both rooms and helicopter tickets at a discounted rate. “He paid and received a receipt, full of spelling mistakes. He later realized that the hotel’s legitimate website had been hacked,” Relan said, adding that to avoid the trap, one should book directly through the official website.
Explaining the ‘bait and switch’ deal, he said it needed to be determined whether the offer sounded too good to be true. Citing one case, Relan said, “A man booked a 5-day trip to Kashmir from a website which offered the full package at Rs 6,000. When he tried to reach the concerned company, he realized he had been duped. Search engines run pop-up advertisements from websites that offer unrealistic discounts, cashback or coupon codes for the very destination one is planning to visit. But these codes or discounts never work and the customer loses their money, he said.

TravelAds tips and tricks to help increase hotel bookings https://abnmiamihotels.com/travelads-tips-and-tricks-to-help-increase-hotel-bookings/ Fri, 17 Jun 2022 09:13:44 +0000 https://abnmiamihotels.com/travelads-tips-and-tricks-to-help-increase-hotel-bookings/ For the past two years, Expedia Group Media Solutions has published quarterly Travel Trends Reports to share information on global and regional trends, hoping to inform marketing campaigns as the industry rebuilds. .

For the past two years, Expedia Group Media Solutions has published quarterly Travel Trends Reports to share information on global and regional trends, hoping to inform marketing campaigns as the industry rebuilds. . In our last episode, one of the key trends we’ve highlighted is that after two years of an unpredictable pandemic landscape, hosting performance is on the rise. In this article, we’ll look at a tool from Expedia Group Media Solutions that can help you capture this growing demand: Ads sponsored by TravelAds.

Connect with enthusiastic travelers

The data showed that travelers are eager to make up for lost time and travel intent is on the rise. As shared in our latest travel trends report, global accommodation bookings for hotels and vacation rentals rose 35% in the first quarter compared to the previous quarter, while 15 of the top 25 global destinations recorded double-digit growth in bookings. Our first-party data also shows that travelers are looking further afield for domestic and international travel. In fact, the 3-6 month search window has increased by 80% for domestic searches and 35% for international searches. Clearly, travelers feel more confident and ready to explore again.

So the question is how you can connect with these travelers when looking to drive overnights. Fortunately, our Ads sponsored by TravelAds is a flexible and cost-effective pay-per-click advertising solution that can help your property stand out on our Expedia Group sites and generate additional room nights when you need them most. Let’s talk about a few ways to use TravelAds to drive results.

Target the right traveler

TravelAds targeting is based on real-time data on traveler intent and demand, which can help you identify the most valuable travel buyer for your hotel. At the same time, our targeting tools can help you engage that travel buyer at key decision points throughout their booking journey.

For example, you can target by geography, travel date, booking window, device, proximity, etc. You can even target international travelers, group travelers, and business travelers. This sophisticated targeting means you can bid more competitively on specific traveler types. Plus, we’re constantly adding new targeting features.

For example, suppose you want to target international travelers looking for trips to Hawaii. Since visitors can only get there by plane, it’s likely that these travel buyers are looking for both flights and hotels. They are also likely to look further. With TravelAds, you can implement a bidding strategy that captures all of these traits:

  • First, implement a package route bidding strategy to target people looking for flights and hotels.
  • Second, target travelers looking for 22+ days.
  • Finally, increase your competitiveness with travelers from specific countries of origin. You can increase your bid for anyone abroad, or get more accuracy by bidding differently depending on the traveler’s country or outlet.

If you want to target domestic travelers, that’s easy too. We’ve launched three new auction optimizers to target travelers searching within the next two weeks, or searching within 100 miles, or searching on a mobile device. All of these features can help you attract those who want to stay nearby.

Deliver the right message

In addition to targeting, TravelAds allows you to enrich and optimize your message. Remember that by running TravelAds you get double exposure – your organic listing and the sponsored listing of TravelAds will run simultaneously. This means you can tell the story that your organic listing can’t – whether it’s highlighting key features of your property, promoting packages in conjunction with a package path bidding strategy , or something else. You can do this by using custom ad text and changing your main photo accordingly, helping your property stand out even more, like in this example:

When targeting overseas travelers, you can also take advantage of our localization team to deliver copy in over 10 languages. This extends the reach of your message to markets around the world.

Maximize visibility in a competitive market

Next, let’s look at some tips to consider when implementing your TravelAds strategy that can help you maximize the visibility of your ads:

  • Improve your bids according to your needs and the market.
  • Use scheduled ads, for example if you have scheduled downtime or upcoming promotions.
  • Balance your bids with your budget. Avoid outbidding without sufficient budget to maintain our visibility throughout the day.

Speaking of budget, we also have a new payment option – Post Bill – which makes it easier for hotels to maximize their visibility potential. It requires no upfront commitment or pre-approval, and comes with monthly billing so you only pay for the clicks you receive that month. This means you can generate room nights and revenue before your payment is even due.

Many of our hotel partners have found success with Post Bill, including Hotel Effie Sandestin. Just weeks after switching payment methods, the hotel’s TravelAds campaign saw impressions triple month-on-month.

Of course, partnering with Media Solutions doesn’t just give you access to self-service tools like TravelAds. You’ll also have access to a team of trusted advisors to guide you through the process, from setting your campaign goals to understanding your ad performance so you can optimize as needed or share your success. These advisors are experts in your area and can share insights from our first-party data that can help you create a strategy for your promotions.

To learn more, download the TravelAds sponsored ads guide or contact us today. You can also find us at HSMAI Strategy Conference and HSMAI ROC at the end of the month, where we will come together to help address the most critical trends affecting hotels today.

Last week’s update features articles on two less frequently used social media platforms – Instagram and Snapchat – and details the brewing battle between banking companies for legitimacy in the travel industry. I hope you enjoy.

Tripscout features hotel bookings on Instagram
(“Tripscout raises $14 million, launches hotel booking via Instagram”, June 3, 2022 via Phocus Wire)
Tripscout announced plans to launch a hotel booking platform accessible through Tripscout’s Instagram accounts. According to Tripscout Founder and CEO Konrad Waliszewki, users of the platform will have access to private/gated fares 75% below the best available fares. Users seeking access to the platform send a direct message with the word “hotel” to the relevant Instagram account, which then links the user to the booking platform where the user can search, view and book listings of hotels provided through bedbanks, OTAs and other Suppliers.

With the addition of vacation rentals, Hopper can now extend its industry-leading flexible payment alternatives (e.g. cancel for any reason) to short-term rentals. My question…is that or should that be taken as a sign of something much bigger? In other words, how long will it be before the two companies announce that they are partnering (perhaps even an acquisition by Expedia) on a much broader basis to provide Expedia users with a access to Hopper’s catalog of fintech tools across its entire brand portfolio?

Chase takes on CapitalOne
(“Chase to Launch Consumer Travel Portal; Claims Top Five US Travel Provider With $8 Billion in Sales”, May 28, 2022 via Yahoo! News)

The tourism sector in the Caribbean is slowly coming back to life. The government of Antigua and Barbuda has said that for June and July all hotels are booked at 70-80% capacity.

At a cabinet meeting on Thursday, Tourism Minister Charles ‘Max’ Fernandez said this season looks to be extremely busy for the hospitality industry and the hotel industry in general.

“The winter tourist season, which has just ended, has also been exceptional, with hotels at full capacity at all times,” the minister said.

The Jolly Beach Hotel is scheduled to open in November 2022, with the first 200 renovated rooms, to be operated by Elite Resorts until the dispute involving an illegal charge against the asset is resolved. Only the courts can grant a discharge; the legal process has already started and is expected to take two years.

On top of that, Health Minister Zoudiera Jackson told Cabinet that no changes to the Covid guidelines were needed. He said the protocols are updated given the number of patients hospitalized due to COVID-19; however, there are no hospitalizations.

Additionally, he said there are currently 200 COVID-19 positive patients remaining in isolation. The minister also said cases had started to decline after the Labor Day spike that had been recorded.

City Developments Ltd. (CDL) – controlled by billionaire Kwek Leng Beng – said its hotel bookings and revenue jumped in the first quarter as the easing of Covid-19 restrictions around the world unleashed pent-up travel demand.

With the gradual lifting of pandemic travel restrictions and the increasing deployment of vaccines around the world, CDL hotel occupancy levels increased from 36.8% a year ago to 52% in the three months ended 31 March, and revenue per available room doubled, the company said in a regulatory filing late Tuesday. While bookings at the group’s hotels, including the Millennium Downtown New York and the St. Regis in Singapore, improved in most parts of Asia, Europe and the United States, the recovery in North has been weighed down by a resurgence in Covid-19 infections.

“The group is optimistic about the outlook for its core business segments for the remainder of 2022, with more residential launches planned in Singapore and overseas while ensuring its retail and hospitality portfolio continues to grow through to strong global demand,” CDL said. .

Despite a 41% drop in Singapore home sales in the first quarter to 188 units, valued at S$477.9 million ($348 million), the real estate giant plans to accelerate project launches residential development for the rest of the year as it believes the impact of property cooling measures introduced in December is temporary.

“While transaction volume is temporarily impacted, the group expects the real estate market to remain resilient and house prices to remain firm due to subdued supply and strong fundamentals,” CDL said. “Market activities are expected to improve as new launches come online.”

Earlier this month, CDL and its partner Hongkong Land unit MCL Land sold 77% of the 407 Piccadilly Grand units on Northumberland Road, about four kilometers east of the central business district. In the second half of the year, the developer plans to launch a 639-unit condominium at Tengah Garden Walk in the western part of Singapore. The company will also begin marketing the 256 prime residential units at the former Fuji Xerox Towers site in Tanjong Pagar, bordering Raffles Place CBD, he said.

City Developments has stepped up its residential developments to tap into Singapore’s growing housing demand. Robust house sales, along with the recovery of the group’s hotel business, helped City Developments return to the black last year with a net profit of S$97.7m, down from a record loss of S$1.9bn. Singapore dollars in 2020 when the company canceled its investment. in a Chinese subsidiary in financial difficulty Sincere Real Estate Group.

Kwek Leng Beng is the chairman of CDL and the Hong Leong Group of Singapore, founded by his father in 1941. His cousin Quek Leng Chan, also a billionaire, runs a separate group in Malaysia, also called Hong Leong. With a net worth of $8.5 billion which he shares with his family, Kwek, 81, was ranked No. 8 on Singapore’s 50 richest list released in August.

According to a recent report by Failte Ireland, international travel demand returned to 2019 levels for spring 2022, driven by significant increases in the UK and US markets. Overall inbound travel is estimated to reach 60-70% of 2019 levels in 2022, and even business travel demand is strengthening.

  • However, this year’s event has still not reached pre-pandemic levels, when revenue per room hit $145.86. Revenue per available room this year was $131.39, down 10% from 2019.
  • Meanwhile, total hotel room revenue, which is a useful indicator for groups interested in the tax revenue generated by the city’s hotel sector, was up 5% from 2019, CBRE found.
