How To Save Tons of Money On Your Hospitality Biz

Starting a business in the hospitality industry is not for the faint-hearted. Running a hotel, motel, hostel, bed and breakfast, or vacation rental space comes with a whole lot of responsibility – and since you’re catering to customers, they expect you to juggle it all with a smile. But for those bitten by the hospitality bug, it’s a labor of love and usually worth the unique challenges that go along with it.

Providing a home away from home for people is tough, but if you’re running a hospitality biz you likely know that one of the biggest hurdles is staying profitable. While some overhead and costs are inevitable, there’s one that will soon be a thing of the past. Lots of 3rd party booking engines that list your hotel take a hefty commission (as much as 30%!), but with Wix’s new Hotel Booking System, you can cut out the middle man and take full control of your business. Want to learn more? Let’s dive into the deep end:

Wix Hotels What it is:

A web app that gives you an all-in-one online booking solution for your hotel’s website. It allows you to take full control of managing your business online, as well as give your guests the option to make reservations directly on your website. And because it’s a Wix-made App, it’s super easy to use and update.

Who it’s good for:

If you have a small to medium-sized property such as a B&B, boutique hotel or vacation rental, you can completely manage your business with Wix Hotels. But it’s not just for you – it’s also a great way for your guests to make reservations directly on your website – 24 hours, 7 days a week.

What you can do with it:

  • Take reservations 24/7 (while avoiding double bookings, block dates and more)
  • Accept online and offline payments
  • Manage your room types, inventory and reservations from a customizable dashboard
  • Let guests book from anywhere – computer, tablet or smartphone
  • Keep all of your hard-earned commissions
