A CALL TO SUPPORT THE SOUTH AFRICAN HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY
The severe impact of COVID-related restrictions on the SA hospitality industry will be felt for many months in the future, with a growing number of industry employers and employees under increasing financial stress. Consumers looking to support the hard-working people in this sector can use the option of paying for adventure and travel experiences now, to use at a later stage. This provides both the immediate support the sector requires and peace of mind associated with extended redemption periods (up to 2 years).
Online experiences sites, Buy A Gift Experience and Hospitality Vouchers, were developed by experienced hospitality professionals mindful of these primary goals. These innovative voucher platforms aim to assist consumers and the hospitality industry during this challenging period through additional marketing avenues and the opportunity to tap into an immediate revenue stream during and post restrictions.
Both Buy A Gift Experience and Hospitality Vouchers offer a convenient platform for consumers seeking to purchase an affordable, premium hospitality experience for immediate or future use. Consumers can choose from various premium hospitality products including hotels, lodges, restaurants, spas and activity service providers. The platforms also enable friends, family, companies or departments to contribute to large events, functions, gifts, incentives and rewards.
Vouchers can be purchased for a specific product, or for a set value that can be used across the platform. There is no cost for listing a service or product on the platforms. A small, all-inclusive handling fee is charged, which is offset against the invoiced face value price of the service at the time of purchase. Payment is processed to the listing hospitality partner prior to redemption, dependent on the type of product, thus ensuring a risk free pre-paid revenue stream.
Hotels, lodges, restaurants, spas, experience and activity / service providers are invited to list their products or services for free on Hospitality Vouchers by sending an email to email@example.com or Buy A Gift Experience at firstname.lastname@example.org
