We’re delighted to bring you our biggest innovation to date which will shake up the wholesale accommodation search space. Welcome to curated hotel results; specifically designed to help you make a booking quickly and efficiently to boost your profits and your reputation with your customers!
Our curated hotel results are born from our state-of-the-art technology which uses predictive analytics and algorithms to curate the right fit for your customers. A ‘one size fits all’ route no longer works when selecting a hotel as customers’ demands have become more discerning. We have done the hard work for you and our industry-leading curated approach enables you to effortlessly select a hotel specific to your customer’s requirements. It will save you time in having to toggle through endless filters to reach the correct hotel, leaving you to concentrate on building the relationship with your customer. It may even throw hotels and categories into the mix that you didn’t know your customer wanted and create opportunities to upsell!
Key features remain unchanged; on login, agents will still need to enter destination, dates, and number of guests, and will still be able to type in a specific accommodation name if your customer knows where they wish to stay.
Not only is our new search based around lifestyle categories, but they are also based on what you and your agency have previously booked with Stuba; whilst also offering a curated listing of what is currently trending with other agents.
We ran research with a selected group of travel agents and asked them what they were looking for when making a booking. It came as no surprise that they wanted to have a succinct choice of hotels to offer their customers, but a robust platform that encourages ‘look to book’ expeditiously. We are thrilled that these same agents have been included in the process further down the line and have tested the system before the rollout to the mass market. Their feedback has proved invaluable, and they are delighted with the results.
With our new curated results, some popular categories you will see such as:
- Trending – will show properties that other agents are currently booking in that destination – there’s no better recommendation than one by a fellow travel professional.
- Recently booked with us – displaying properties that YOU and your agency have recently booked with us, enabling you to access tried and tested properties at the touch of a button.
- Luxe – displays a selection of five-star properties that have met strict criteria to be classified as a Stuba Luxe property. This includes great service, excellent dining, attention to detail, concierge services and lots more.
- Popular Landmark – it’s no surprise that most guests want hotels for their location; our curated results will display hotels closest to the most popular landmark in the destination based on current market trends.
- Beach – our beach collection will display properties famed for their fantastic beachside locations with all the quality you would come to expect from Stuba.
- Business – our curated business hotel collection takes location, services, business centre facilities, Wi-Fi, dining facilities and more into account to display hotels suitable for the most demanding business traveller.
- Family – displays our preferred properties that will suit family groups including requirements such as family rooms or interconnecting rooms, kids’ clubs, kids’ pool, babysitting services and more.
All that remains is for you to start using the new curated listings. The more you use them, the more our algorithms will tailor suggestions based on your search criteria. Welcome to the new era in trade-only curated hotel listings!
