While it's common for travellers to book a tour or activity offline in your office or at your destination's visitor information center, the ability to book and pay for a trip online, one day in advance, via mobile, is relatively new. Previously, last-minute bookings have mostly revolved around bed nights sold by hotels and other types of accommodation providers. But that trend is slowly, and surely, seeping into the tours and activities sector as more tour and activity operators invest in a professional website with online booking and payment capabilities.

HVS MexHIC 2022

February 17, 2022 | Mexico

The last year has presented complex challenges for our industry. Hotel owners and operators were pressed to focus on safe conditions for their teams and guests. We saw a significant portions of Mexico’s economy come to a halt and, with it, the temporary shutdown of much of the country’s hotel inventory. We also observed the industry’s rapid reaction, creating conditions that might allow for property openings as local conditions allowed. And, of course, we remained close to hotel owners, investors and financial institutions as they evaluated measures that might lighten the financial burden of assets, thereby allowing a period of transition to the beginning of a recovery period that is gradually gaining strength.
