A recent survey by hotels.com found that customers rate free Wi-Fi as the most important in-room amenity which is not so surprising in this day and age where we expect constant connectivity for our mobiles, tablets and laptops.
As little as a couple of years ago it was the norm that when you checked into a hotel you’d ask for the price of Wi-Fi. This is now changing with more and more hotel chains and independent hotels offering this service free as standard. Thankfully we have moved on from being given a tiny strip of paper upon checking in with a code typed out!
You might have noticed if you look at recent developments in any of Scotland’s major cities that we are experiencing a major boom in budget hotels, driven by the growth of national and in some cases international brands. The gap that existed 25 years ago between global five star accommodation providers, aimed at high spending tourists and the business traveller, and small private hotels and guest houses which catered to the rest of the market has now virtually disappeared. A new generation of the competitively priced hotel chain has now emerged, establishing itself in towns and cities across the UK.

Over the last few weeks, I have been asked the same question by a multitude of clients, friends, colleagues and fellow students at a two-day sales management training. That question, surprisingly to me was, “…with all the airlines merging, will they stop frequent flyer programs?” Having worked for major airlines and travel management companies, I am used to and enjoy talking about travel. In my friends’ minds, the four major airlines, post mergers, would have no reason to offer traveler incentives. I foresee the exact opposite. Not only will frequent flyer programs at Delta, United, Southwest and the new America continue, they will be enhanced. Here’s my reasoning:
Leaving home without your mobile phone will soon be as bad as being caught without a passport when setting off on international travels. The pile of paper documents that we associate with air travel, including boarding passes, transfer arrangements and hotel bookings, are quickly becoming obsolete, replaced by new, mainly mobile phone-focused, technology.
