You know what’s hard?…
Trying to save up to go on a holiday with friends when you are a student, you always have bills coming in, insurance that needs to be paid, as well as trying to find the money for food and life in general.
Let alone having spare money to go on a holiday. When travelling students and millennials tend to look for alternative accommodation options, as it often means cheaper accommodation, thankfully ibis Hotels have come to the rescue of students everywhere. Launching a new ‘#justforstudents’ offer that is reserved exclusively for students. The ibis branded hotels are one of the first international economy hotel chains to offer a special of this kind.
In a recent survey conducted by NP6 surveying 1,485 students, over five countries revealed that the price of accommodation is a huge barrier for 78 perfect of millennials thinking of taking a holiday. With 62 percent of those mentioning that a price reduction rather than a fixed hotel rate would encourage them to book a hotel for accommodation. Have the hotel chains realised the potential that AirBnb has in the marketplace with millennials looking for accommodation, and that the huge increase in home sharing and how it’s taking profits and customers away from major hotel chains who are pricing themselves out of the market for millennials.
Leaders in the economy hotel segment, ibis Hotels, ibis Styles Hotels and ibis Budget Hotels are strengthening their position with the younger generation, providing up to a 30 percent price reduction for hotel stays at over 600 hotels across 44 counties worldwide, provided you have a valid student ID card.
