To support hotels in the era of COVID-19, Expedia Group created a recovery program to ensure hotels receive support as they rebuild and rebound from the impact of the global pandemic.
The recovery program provides critical support across key priority areas identified by Expedia Group’s lodging partners as they look to recover from the pandemic. Those who opt into the program will receive:
- Local market data: Access to proprietary, dynamic market data allows lodging providers to better understand when demand will return to their market – insights from looking into trends on such areas as website traffic, stay dates, and demand source markets.
- Marketing credits: To help increase their property’s online visibility to travelers searching across Expedia Group sites and begin driving demand when the time is right.
- Financial relief: Participating properties will experience reduced compensation on all new bookings made within the program period on Expedia Group sites – regardless of the actual stay dates.
- Support for furloughed and displaced workers: To help prepare workforces for recovery, complimentary online training courses and educational resources are available as part of the newly launched Expedia Group Academy.
For more information and to opt into the program, hoteliers should reach out to their relevant Expedia Group account manager.
