Peak season is the best for the Hotelier as there is high demand and an influx of guests. During high season, it’s quite easy to achieve full hotel occupancy. However, the Hotel’s low season is a harsh reality of the global hospitality industry when the Hotelier has to struggle with attracting guests and reaching maximum hotel occupancy. Seasonality creates demand fluctuations that could be due to natural reasons, like temperature and climate. Also, other reasons, like holidays, economy and other factors play a role in this aspect. Unfortunately, low season has a negative impact on the Hotel’s revenue and turnover. Now, the question arises: How to increase demand outside high season
