This is just one of the many questions that we have during this pandemic. The answer may be obvious, not until we have a safe vaccine or a concrete solution. The travel industry around the world have been hit so hard even more so for countries that has considered tourism as its key player of income.
For the Philippines, the Hotel Industry has already experienced no less than 70% decrease in revenue. To help with this, a local association of hotel marketers are holding a pivotal event aimed at further jumpstarting the Philippines’ hotel and hospitality industry: the September Online Sale, or S.O.S
Organized by the Hotel Sales & Marketing Association (HSMA) Philippines, in partnership with Department of Tourism, Tourism Promotions Board, and Atlantis, S.O.S. is a two-week online sale of 89 hotel accommodations and other offerings across the country, to be held on September 15 to 30, 2020.
The sale may be accessed through HSMA’s website, http://www.hsma.org.ph. Travelers can find exclusive discounts of up to 70 percent off on regular rates of hotels in each of the featured destinations! I know you’re question might be “But when can I use it, or I missed the expiry date?” Offers are very much flexible with 1 year validity and some even offers no validity!
