ORLANDO, FL (May 5, 2015) — SaveOnResorts.com, LLC, a leading travel technology company based in Carlsbad, Calif., has unveiled an innovative product to help resort developers in the vacation ownership industry attract new members.
For most vacation ownership companies, the majority of guests do not purchase a timeshare membership on their first visit to a hotel or resort. On average, guests who purchase do so on a third or later visit to a participating property. These follow-up visits are typically in different locations from where guests received their initial introduction to the benefits of membership.
To help developers convert more guests into club members, SaveOnResorts.com has created a premium called Travel Savings Passport available for guests who do not purchase on their first stay. The Travel Savings Passport provides limited access to the SaveOnResorts.com platform, which is packed with travel savings. The goal is to give guests another taste of the added benefits that members enjoy.
Guests activate their Passport by creating an account on the system. Developers, in turn, can use the account information to invite the guest back with a special offer to the resort or to a sister property within their portfolio. The guest gets an additional first-hand look at the benefits of membership. The developer is provided an additional opportunity to close a sale on a follow-up visit, when the propensity to purchase is much higher.
“The Travel Savings Passport is an all-around win,” says Kevin Schneider, CEO, SaveOnResorts.com. “The guest enjoys great savings on more getaways, and the developer gets a low-cost conversion tool in the form of returning guests.”
SaveOnResort.com’s user-friendly platform leverages the company’s vast array of vendor and supplier partnerships to offer timeshare owners access to discounted rates at more than 300,000 hotels and resorts worldwide, 23 car rental brands, 17,000 activities and excursions, 3,000 golf courses, cruise lines, river cruises, sailboats, yachts, tour packages, wine clubs, gift cards, and more.
The SaveOnResorts.com web platform can be branded and customized to the resort developer and offered to the consumer as a special membership add-on to an existing timeshare or ownership product, or even as an upgrade to an existing membership. With the tools provided, sales professionals can show potential owners the savings they will receive through membership by doing side-by-side price comparisons with major online travel agencies in real time with live inventory. This transparency in the product and the savings provide immediate validation of benefits and is a core principle of the SaveOnResorts.com technology.
