The launch last week of the ‘StayToday’, a last-minute accommodation booking website, is expected to offer discounts at short notice, thanks to Naude Muller and Chris Botha.The pair of Namibian e-commerce enthusiasts has created a win-win situation for consumers and hospitality professionals alike.
Anyone looking for a last-minute escape can now just click their way to relishing the soothing beauty of the Namibian landscape. The StayToday website is also ideal for business travelers or visitors who decide to make last-minute changes to their travel itinerary.
Hotels and lodges have always had the problem of filling their empty rooms at the last minute, and now the StayToday website offers a tailor-made solution.
The website is a platform where accommodation establishments can sell these rooms at significant discounts. The StayToday website allows for fast and easy booking of accommodation online in real-time, and confirms your booking in less that two minutes. StayToday also features amazing tailor-made packages that you’ll find nowhere else.
According to the StayToday creators, Muller and Botha, “tourism is Namibia’s fastest-growing industry, but we Namibians have not taken full advantage of all the opportunities presented by the Internet.” They recognized that by creating a platform where establishments could sell their vacant rooms at discounted prices at the last minute, an entire new way of travelling in Namibia could begin.
Every day at noon, the website posts significantly discounted destination offers that are valid for a stay on the same or next day and can be booked for a maximum of six nights.
The website also offers ‘featured stays’ which can be redeemed any time during the period they are valid for up to 12 months.
A close working relationship with Nedbank Namibia and Paygate ensures the online transactions are secure at all times. Telephone bookings are also an option.
StayToday has teamed up with Venture Publications, a reputable publishing house, which is known for a variety of tourism, and environmental magazines such as Travel News Namibia and the Namibia Holiday & Travel. Go to www.staytoday.com.na and start your adventure.
