Breathe, you can still go into the running.

But today is your very last day.

No Vacancy, a step-by-step guide written and created by Nick Bonney who has spent time working with Tourism Australia, Qantas, Singapore Airlines and Virgin Australia, is designed to help you uncover new ways to increase your bookings by approaching your business creatively.

Cover

Online travel agencies (OTAs) and disrupters such as Airbnb have given your guests the power to make and change their mind on a whim.

Because your guests have greater access to reviews and other travel information, their expectations have become higher than ever – making it harder and more important, to build brand loyalty and stand out from your competition.

No Vacancy gives you the tools, step-by-step advice and confidence to target the right audience, maximise the efficiency of your marketing strategy, initiate a complete rebrand or even build a new brand from the ground up.

Even if you have a thriving accommodation business, you will find bucket loads of information to tweak and use to optimise the return from both new and repeat guests.

One night in Hong Kong

by Daisy Melwani

How do you spend one night in Hong Kong? Personally, we could spend 24-hours straight eating dumplings, though as you’ll find here, there’s plenty more to do as well.
