Summer 2021 Travel Has Started Selling Out: Are You Ready?

After more than a year of being home-bound because of the pandemic, over two-thirds of Americans have

a “ready-to-travel” state-of-mind resulting in summer travel plans — 72.8% are expected to travel for leisure

within the next three months.  This sudden surge in bookings shows that many are locking in reservations

and rates before it’s too late.


At the same time, we know that many hoteliers have deferred maintenance and were slow to make repairs

and replace items.  Uninhabitable rooms were simply removed from available inventories during the

past year.  But all that has to stop now as occupancy rates are expected to exceed this summer to

2019 levels.  An accurate inventory of rooms and any maintenance required needs to be taken with the goal

of readying your hotel for 100% occupancy.


At the least, travelers are expecting improved hygiene and facilities — things like QR codes, contactless

check-in and plastic wrap on remotes.  But they are also looking for great amenities (like improved

guest rooms, on-site gyms, pool areas and restaurants) to make their first post-COVID family trips truly

special, memorable and safe.


Are you ready?


In addition to the TableBoost app, two of our Marketplace partners can help with that readiness.

Ascentium Capital for new equipment financing and Source1 Purchasing, a free membership group

purchasing organization, that will provide rebates and discounts from the vendors and suppliers you

already buy from, plus others.

Don’t wait until it is too late. Start planning for the summer today!
