Hotels seeking new ways to improve the guest experience while amplifying brand engagement will benefit from the innovative Hotel Partner Program from GettinLocalGettinLocal is the first contactless in-destination platform featuring novel technology that is disrupting the OTA space and transforming how hotels engage with guests. Both iOS and Android compatible, it allows hotel guests to explore, discover and book activities, amenities and services inside the hotel and locally. The smart platform changes information as the guests move to different locations by using its geo-fence technology. By changing offerings in real-time, guests can discover and book different local activities on the move. For the hotel, the new platform is a contactless E-Concierge and revenue driver with multiple unique benefits.

“GettinLocal provides hotels with massive opportunity in many categories with its first-of-kind features,” said Liz Gilbert, SVP, Revenue & Partnerships for GettinLocal. “Our cloud-based and geo-fence technologies give hotels a new way to customize their communications with guests, while creating direct revenue opportunities. The platform is highly efficient, fully automated, and easy to navigate, all while providing guests with unprecedented hyper-local discovery that is dynamic and completely on-demand. GettinLocal is the most relevant discovery and booking platform available in hotel and travel technology.”

To get started, a guest downloads, for free, the GettinLocal app at a hotel property by scanning its QR code on display. This instantly enrolls the guest to the hotel’s online loyalty dashboard, resulting in the guest receiving a scheduled push alert message. The hotel can pre-program scheduled push alerts ranging from 30 minutes up to 24 hours. Guests are routed to a designated landing page that asks them to join a Loyalty Program or visit the restaurant, spa or other location on hotel property. Hotel guests can immediately start enjoying GettinLocal. It connects them to local attractions, shopping, activities, cultural locations, walking/biking tours, restaurants, and much more – all from one app. The multiple message features also allow the hotel to connect with guests at a future date to entice guests to come back and book directly with the hotel or brand.

GettinLocal provides its hotel partners with several revenue-boosting benefits, including:
