Book Direct and Get the Best Deals!

Book Direct and Get the Best Deals!

Booking a hotel today has never been easier with booking sites and aggregators compiling the best deals for people to go compare their options. It’s not just a question of price but the value of the hotel rooms and facilities as well. Over the years, there has been a huge increase in these travel agents, middlemen and booking services (they are called OTAs in the travel business), which has resulted in a saturation of the market. Hard negotiations and discounts have driven hotels to deal with these OTAs at discounted prices and while OTAs are important to the overall travel industry, hotels are prioritizing the customer and their needs above everything else.

The OTAs need to be competitive and bargain hard but they are squeezing the hotels for prices that leave a margin for profit. People are increasingly losing out on prices they could have gotten from the hotel because of these middlemen. The hotels, especially the Holiday Inn, would rather pass these excellent prices directly on to the customer rather than both parties losing a chunk to the middle men. This is why at the Holiday Inn Phuket, we believe we can serve you best if you book directly with us.

Why Booking Directly with Us is a Good Idea

Holiday Inn has always offered the lowest price online to the customer that books directly with us. This is extremely important to us as we want to guarantee you enjoy your stay without worrying about your wallet. In fact, we will go a step further in this regard. If you find a price lower than our direct booking price, we will match it and give you 5 times the IHG Rewards Club Points (more on this later), up to 40,000 points (terms and conditions apply, read more about this here).

Advantages of booking direct

Booking directly with us has other advantages. If you book directly with us, we can communicate directly with you and this enables us to offer you services that are not available through OTAs. The prices that OTAs offer us are negotiated before any customer books one of our rooms and so the services and rates are predetermined. However, by booking directly with us, we are free to offer you a variety of extra amenities and/or services to make your stay even more personalized and comfortable.

IHG Rewards program

With the IHG Rewards program, Holiday Inn would love to maintain a long-lasting and fruitful relationship with you. Once you become an IHG member, you will receive a few benefits from the outset.  You can book your stay through the IHG App, get the lowest price with our Best Price Guarantee, always stay connected with free Internet in our rooms, receive an Extended Check-Out and collect and redeem points from our IHG rewards Club Catalog.

The IHG Rewards program points can only be earned if you book directly through us and not through any other service and if you consistently book with us, you will get even more benefits. Booking rooms with us will raise your status with the IHG Rewards program with your membership getting upgraded through the tiers of Gold Elite, Platinum Elite and Spire Elite (learn more about membership benefitshere). You can redeem the points you accrue with us through reward nights, products from our online catalog or through gift cards. Choose from any of these options from thispage.

Don’t spend all your time searching for deals and worrying about whether you got the best one for your stay because that’s not what travelling is about. Booking directly with Holiday Inn Resort Phuket will see you get the best deal with additional service and even rewards, so make the right decision and choose us!
