Create Extra Items & Package Deals
Managing value-added services as extras
From breakfast to laundry service or sauna use to bicycle rental: As a lodging establishment, you offer a wide range of additional services which your guests can take advantage of.
In Lodgit Desk you create all the extra services in the extra item management. If desired, you can also combine different items into one package, for example, a Valentine's Day package with a bouquet of roses, a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride through the city and a candlelight dinner.
Once created, extra items and packages are quickly and easily assigned to the respective booking - and can be invoiced just as easily and quickly. The extra items management can also be used in other ways e.g:
- Charging of visitor's tax or tourist tax, which you collect for your city council
- Creation and redeeming of vouchers
- Discounts or additional expenses
- and much more!
Holiday Package Deals and Special Offers for Upselling
All extra items can be combined in any combination into a package deal. For example, you can offer the above-mentioned Valentine's Day package or a summer package with bicycle rental, ticket for the outdoor swimming pool and breakfast, or a hiking package with a packed lunch and a hiking map of the area or... There are no limits to your imagination!
For each package you can decide whether it is an inclusive package, a package deal or a normal package. The separate extra items within a package can also have a different price than if they are booked separately. This makes upselling easy: breakfast for 6 €, dinner for 15 € - available together as a package half-board for 18 €.
You can also further tempt customers with popular upsell offers, for instance offering free stays upon a certain number of nights rental “Stay 4 nights – pay only 3”. This is all possible using package deals.
Tip: Packages can also be offered via the Lodgit online booking system - automatically or optionally!
In-Depth Reports & Hotel Forecasting Software
Extra items can of course be evaluated in detail by Lodgit Desk and illustrated with graphical diagrams.
This way you can see which of your extras is the most popular and also those that may need altering. You will also have a list of the fees (e.g. visitor's tax) that you have received as transitory items for the relevant authorities.
These lists can also be used for forecasts: let your kitchen staff know how many guests have booked breakfast tomorrow, or for which guests the fridge in the holiday flat has to be filled.
