Serviced City Pads sets up referral scheme for apartment operator enquiries
Serviced City Pads is pleased to announce that it now offers serviced apartment operators 3% of the total value of bookings made as a result of operator referrals.
Chris Rose, Managing Director at Serviced City Pads said “We feel that it is important to offer our apartment operators an incentive for referring enquiries to us that, for whatever reason, they can’t fulfil. For any enquiries that we convert into a booking – whether that’s for serviced apartments Manchester or wherever else in the UK – we will pay the operator 3% of the total value of the booking.
We hope that this will be useful to apartment operators on two levels. Firstly, a company that offers serviced Apartments Birmingham but not other cities may have a corporate guest who has stayed in Birmingham, but is them working in Edinburgh and requires accommodation in Edinburgh. If they refer the enquiry to us and we convert into a booking, the Birmingham apartment manager will make money from that booking.
Secondly, if there is a serviced apartment booking company in Manchester that has an enquiry for Manchester, but they happen to be full for that weekend (or however long the stay is for), Serviced City Pads will generally be able to find availability as we work with the vast majority of serviced apartment companies in Manchester. again there is money to be shared in this instant.
Of course, the enquiry needs to be sent over independently and we will always let the operator know if the request for the stay has already been received. There is an element of trust from both sides, but we feel that we have developed good relationships with our serviced apartment operators.
We hope that this acts as an incentive to our apartment operators to share leads with us that we may not have. It will also make finding accommodation for our customers easier as we will speak to a number of operators across each city on their behalf. We find this works well for customers as the way we work cuts out a lot of the donkey work and hassle of finding serviced apartments or other types of accommodation (we are working on being able to offer hotels in Manchester and Liverpool over the next 3-6 months).”
