Storming Innovation For Guests

Imagine boosting your bookings and making guests happy, rain or shine. WeatherPromise has got your guests covered with travel insurance that ensures their vacation investment is safe, no matter the weather.

June 10, 2024

It's June, and you know what that means—hurricane season is upon us. With over 20 years in the Caribbean and the Atlantic seaboard, I know all too well how this season can impact bookings. But here's some exciting news that could change everything: I came across travel insurance that protects guests' vacation investments against lousy weather! Yes, you heard that right—weather insurance for travel.

The Power of WeatherPromise

Here's how it works:

  • Personalized Weather Insurance: Each WeatherPromise is customized for a specific trip, using data from trusted sources like the German Weather Service, NOAA, and NASA.
  • Real-Time Monitoring: WeatherPromise continuously tracks weather conditions with satellites, weather stations, and radar.
  • Automatic Refunds: If the weather doesn't meet the criteria outlined in the insurance policy, guests receive a full refund for their vacation rental.

Your guests will feel a sense of security and peace of mind, knowing their vacation investment is safe, no matter what Mother Nature throws their way. This can be a game-changer when it comes to choosing where to stay.

Extended Booking Seasons

By recommending WeatherPromise, you're also opening up new opportunities for bookings while providing a safety net for your guests' vacations. With the assurance of weather insurance, guests are more likely to book during shoulder and off-seasons, traditionally slower periods. This can lead to higher occupancy rates and increased revenue, even when the weather is unpredictable.

OTA Partners

Right now, the booking engine HomeToGo has partnered with WeatherPromise. As the first vacation rental marketplace to offer this unique weather guarantee, HomeToGo sets new standards for guest service and reliability. On the WeatherPromise website, guests can find an insurance premium calculator that allows them to purchase coverage easily. This insurance is available to anyone in the United States at the time of purchase, and it covers trips anywhere in the world.

This is a great opportunity for hoteliers and holiday home owners to instill trust for guests to visit even when it could be unseasonable.

Actionable Tips for Hoteliers and Vacation Rental Owners

  1. Highlight the WeatherPromise in Your Marketing: Promote this unique selling point. Emphasize the peace of mind it offers and how your potential guests can travel anytime, knowing they are protected if the weather turns ugly.
  2. Educate Your Guests: Recommend to your guests that travel insurance is recommended and that WeatherPromise has their backs if there is inclement weather. Provide the website for WeatherPromise to make it easy for guests to buy.
  3. Encourage Off-Season Bookings: Promote WeatherPromise to market your property during less popular times of the year. Highlight the security of booking with weather insurance, making it an attractive option for travelers who might otherwise hesitate.
  4. Explore Partnership Opportunities: WeatherPromise is seeking partnerships. If WeatherPromise decides to offer an affiliate program, it would be smart to sign up. Then, you could make some coin if your guests buy coverage.

WeatherPromise is a fantastic opportunity to deepen guest satisfaction, boost your bookings, and stay ahead of the competition. Embrace this innovation, and let's make every trip a dream come true, rain or shine.
