Texas B&B Opens to a Full House

Texas Inn Re-Opens With Almost Full House

Texas Inn Re-Opens With Almost Full House

“Texas opened up two weeks ago and business was immediate and I’ve been almost full all the time. Reservations seem to be a spur of the moment and last minute, but I’ve been booked with a steady stream of guests waiting to get out of the house.”

“They’ve been driving in from a 2-hour radius. We are cleaning everything and every surface. We provide keyless check-ins and boxed breakfasts to go. We have plenty of property so there are a lot of wide-open spaces for people to enjoy. Tell other innkeepers that when they lift the restrictions to be ready!” Carol, owner BlissWood B&B Ranch

France to Build OTA to Rival Airbnb, Booking.com  For Real

The French government and its tourism industry are joining forces to win back customers from U.S. online travel giants, according to Bloomberg.

This is all a part of the government-led stimulus package to revive tourism hit by lockdowns and restrictions imposed to fight Covid 19.

But this has been brewing for years as the French have repeatedly put their foot down against Airbnb controlling Paris.

For years, home-sharing has put pressure on hotel rates and occupancy levels.

So now France’s $19 billion bailouts for the damaged tourism sector will include a reservation system!

Don’t Just Tell, Show – Purdue Says Housekeepers Should Be Visible

“…demonstrate it, so we have a sense of comfort.
