Business Value

  • In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, hotels around the globe are increasingly looking at improving cleanliness programs at their properties. Hotels want to provide guests with peace of mind and assure them that their room has been thoroughly sanitized. Whether it's guest rooms, restaurants, gyms, or other public areas, hotels want to make sure the health and safety of guests is a priority, now more than ever.
  • While our hotel partners have always taken providing clean rooms seriously, some are taking actions that go above and beyond standards provided by various governing bodies to meet the expectations presented by COVID-19. Several hoteliers are already implementing enhanced hotel cleaning practices, social interactions, and workplace protocols to meet new health and safety regulations.
  • This is of particular importance as Sabre connected travel agencies, Online Travel Agencies (OTAs), and corporations have a duty of care about the well-being of the traveler whilst they are on their trip.
