Prepare yourself and your properties for peaks in demand in 2021

We know that travel is likely to recover gradually and at varying rates, reflecting how and when governments are able to accelerate vaccine distribution and relax lockdown rules and social distancing measures. Despite the unpredictability of the current situation, we are still seeing signs of encouraging demand for travel.

We’re working to provide you continuous support in the months ahead, by offering a variety of new resources, solutions and product updates. These will help you:

Plan and prioritise – get started with the all new Messaging API and explore the Reservation Outage Toolkit to create a fail-safe reservation environment
Grow, onboard or switch new properties – learn how our Onboarding Solutions package is helping Guesty run their onboarding processes more smoothly, and dig into tips that can improve your Supply Flow Score
Improve your properties’ performance – read DerbySoft’s success story on how they created a frictionless payment experience
Get information and support – find out who won a 2020 Connectivity Partner Achievement Award and be on the lookout for the upcoming satisfaction survey

You can get started quickly with clear and helpful documentation.

We’ve created a Supply Flow Model to represent the different stages where rooms can drop off in the guest journey –  often due to policies and restrictions your properties may inadvertently have in place. Learn how to turn this information to your properties’ advantage.
