Seems like load shedding is here to stay for now. How do you cope with this inconvenience when you have guests to keep happy?
Don’t worry — NightsBridge is still up and running.
We will continue to operate as normal through all load shedding schedules.
— Your property can still be booked in the time your power is down. You’ll see these new bookings as soon as you log back in or synchronise.
— OR download the NightsBridge app to check from your phone.
— If your cellular network is also not playing along, you can phone us to help add manual bookings to block availability.
— Our Cape Town office runs on generators and we will have staff available to help you throughout season. Feel free to call or use our online TAWK facility.
— Have the schedule for your area at hand.
— Invest in a few solar lights for your garden, and a few battery-powered LED lights inside. A head torch or gas lamp can also come in handy.
— Make sure your cell phone is charged and have a power bank or two ready as backup.
— Check that you have keys for gates and entrances that usually work on electricity, or that they have back-up batteries.
— Turn off your computer before the power goes down to make sure it doesn’t get damaged by power surges.
Food & entertainment.
— By cooking with gas or hosting a barbecue you can still serve breakfast or dinner.
— Add a load shedding survival kit to your rooms– include matches, candles or a torch and maybe something to read or games to keep guests entertained.
— Fill flasks with boiling water before your slot so a warm cup of coffee or tea is still available.
— Try not to open or close your fridge or freezer too regularly to preserve products inside.
