Things to do now:
- Make sure all of your closeouts are removed and that you are showing availability everywhere. Check availability on your own website booking button and a public site you are linked to like Travelground or Booking.com.
- Use the industry protocols that were put out by the Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA). We summarised them to make it easy to follow.
- Let your guests know you’re implementing the safety protocols. Join the NightsBridge SafeStays initiative on Links Manager. This will show that you’re implementing cleaning and hygiene precautions.
- Spread the word about the core focus for the sector’s safe reopening — Use the hashtag #SouthAfricaisTravelReady.
