Today’s holidaymakers are generally quite tech-savvy, but with technology constantly evolving, so has the expectations of customers’ booking experience. This is why we have introduced Instant Book; to revolutionise and increase your bookings this season! 

Since Airbnb launched Instant Book, they have seen a huge increase in their booking listings. Airbnb claimed that “70% of new listings on Airbnb have hosts using Instant book from the very beginning”. By enabling Instant Book, the large majority of hosts on Airbnb have reported earning more money than ever before, some claim they have received double the number of bookings and earnings as customers are showing great appreciation for the booking process being simpler and easier to use. What’s more, the hosts are also impressed by the increase in customer interest, rise in bookings and it’s convenience to use. 

Likewise, Tripadvisor has also seen a rise in bookings since introducing Instant Book to their platform stating that, “today’s travellers are increasingly looking for one-stop convenience; a recent survey found that 63% of TripAdvisor users want one place where they can read reviews and book”. Just like Airbnb, hosts and hoteliers on Tripadvisor are also finding that Instant Book is becoming an integral tool in increasing their revenue. 

So, by improving the experience for both our instructors and customers, we strongly believe Instant Book can be just as successful to all our instructors on Maison Sport!
