Staycation is the new vacation

According to VisitBritains Bank Holiday Trip Tracker 12% of adults in Britain definitely plan to take a holiday in the UK over Easter  and 11% definitely plan to take a holiday in England. It’s Parents (59%) who are more likely to be planning or considering a trip at this time of year, compared to those without children (34%).

This means you could see an increase in visitors at your venues, whether thats a hotel, restaurant or leisure venue. Even if people aren’t staying away from home, most will still be off work over the Easter period due to it being a Bank Holiday. 

Go the egg-stra mile this Easter.

Looking to attract families?

Consider creating family friendly offer and packages which cater for both children and adults. Maybe look into specific discounts for children or work with other local businesses to form partnerships with your services and offerings.

Don’t forget to train staff, prepare them and make them aware that it’s highly likely that there will be more children at your establishment Easter weekend. It sounds obvious, but aspects such as safety may need a little extra attention. Don’t forget to child proof areas that might otherwise be dangerous for children.

Could you create a getaway package deal?

If you run a spa or have leisure facilities, think about how you could create a break away from the everyday. Whether this is package deals with overnight stays, or even collaborating with local hotels if needed. Create offers and packages to entice people into using your facilities.

Want to make sure customers pre-book?

Easter is a busy time of year with most of the schools in the UK having 2 weeks holiday. Parents want to make sure they can keep the children entertained, so will be on the lookout for activities. If you offer facilities or activities that only allow for a specific number of people to attend you may need to ask for bookings, especially when offering a food service.

Our systems integrate with a platform called ResDiary which is a powerful table reservations system. It gives you more control over your restaurant and supports you with taking bookings 24/7.

At busy periods customer satisfaction is key, there will be numerous people coming to your venue all expecting the same level of service. Give them the best service by making sure you’re all stocked up, staff understand the bookings which are taking place and staff are up to speed with the menu for the day.

Our system allow you to do all of the above and more! Manage your stock check, bookings, mobile ordering, table ordering and offers all in one place. If this if something you think you need, please get in touch with our team.
