I’ve written before about how I think many travel brands could be doing a better job creatively generating revenue. With so many companies having liquidity issues, I don’t understand why we’re not seeing more travel brands incentivizing paying now for travel at a later date.
We’ve started to see this at some hotels, and now Banyan Tree has launched a fantastic promotion.
Through May 6, 2020, Banyan Tree is running the “Ultimate Getaways” promotion, through which they’re offering up to 78% off future stays.
The way this promotion works:
- You’re buying a non-refundable gift certificate that you have to use for a stay by December 20, 2021
- The gift certificate includes taxes and service charges (which can otherwise be significant)
- Bookings include accommodation and daily breakfast for two
- Advance reservation is required and redemption is subject to hotel’s room availability
This promotion is available at a dozen Bayan Tree properties. In each case you’re getting three nights accommodations plus some add-ons, ranging from massages, to afternoon tea, to dinner, to club upgrades.
Here are the basics of each gift certificate offer:
These really are some exceptional discounts, and given that the gift certificates are valid through December 2021, you’ll have over 18 months to actually stay.
While this isn’t a promotion I’ll be taking advantage of, if you were considering going to one of the above Banyan Tree properties anyway or live closer to these properties than I do, then I’d seriously consider this promotion.
Is anyone taking advantage of this great Banyan Tree promo?
