How to Boost Q4 Sales and Jumpstart 2018!

November may traditionally be a low booking period with the end of the year and the holidays only a few weeks away, but don’t just coast through the rest of 2017. Now is the time to take advantage of fourth quarter sales and start looking at booking 2018 vacations.
Simply implement these three ways to increase sales now to see how to boost bookings in November.
Hotel Deals Are Out There
Some hotels may have discounted rates available when you book in November that apply to the first half of 2018. Secure the special rates from tour operators and use them as incentives to get clients to start thinking about travel January through June. Now is the time to book an early winter trip or spring break.
You should also not automatically assume that all destinations and hotels have sold out or are at their top tier for December travel. Tour operators may in some cases have hotel rate discounts for last minute December travel, and you will look like a hero to clients when you show them that they can get away this holiday season.
