10 JAHRE AIRBNB: AIRFOLG, AIRGER, AIRKENNTNISSE

10 JAHRE AIRBNB: AIRFOLG, AIRGER, AIRKENNTNISSE | Hotel and accommodation trends | Scoop.it
2008 als kleine Online-Schlafplatzbörse gestartet, hat Airbnb die ganze Hotelwelt aufgeschreckt: Anatomie eines Milliarden-Booms, der noch lange nicht zu Ende ist. 


Kalifornien, August 2008: Als in San Francisco wieder einmal alle Hotelbetten ausgebucht sind, kommen zwei Typen in ihrer Studi-Klitsche auf eine Idee: Man könnte doch – via Internet, logo – Schlafplätze in der eigenen Wohnung vermieten. Damit eine günstige Hotel-Alternative schaffen, neue Leute kennenlernen und sich als Mieter ein Zubrot verdienen.

Rental Economy DNA: Opportunities Within The Folds —

Rental Economy DNA: Opportunities Within The Folds — | Hotel and accommodation trends | Scoop.it
The sharing economy is actually the rental economy, with plenty of upside to go around. But regulation (or the lack there of) and inconsistency in supply makes it hard to plan strategically. Blanket terms like alternative accommodations and vacation rentals fail to fully capture the scope and complexities of the market.  

Airbnb sits at the epicenter of this green tsunami. Other marketplaces including HomeAway and now Booking Holdings are also cashing in and not waiting around for local officials to fully legitimize a clearly global phenomenon.

Trends: Die Hotellerie stellt sich neu auf  | Hotel and accommodation trends | Scoop.it
In den vergangenen Jahren hat sich der Vermietungsmarkt zu einem ausgeprägten Wettbewerbsmarkt gewandelt. Die enormen Käufe und Investitionen der grossen Akteure des Online-Tourismus (Airbnb und Ähnliche, aber auch die OTAs!) haben dazu geführt, dass die Angebote neu geordnet und somit transparenter, aber auch in der Richtung erneuert wurden, dass diese Akteure mittlerweile Dienstleistungen anbieten können, die mit der Hotellerie vergleichbar sind. Unter dem Aspekt der rückläufigen Marktanteile hat sich die Hotellerie neu aufgestellt, was bedeutet, dass der Sektor daran ist, sich von den traditionellen Geschäftsmodellen zu verabschieden.

Hotel direct bookings remain flat despite big marketing push

New data from J.D. Power shows that hotel guests in North America aren’t necessarily booking direct more often than in years past.

The annual survey of 55,000 hotel guests who stayed at a hotel between May 2017 and May 2018 found that direct booking numbers for hotels are flat — despite the fact that guests are more satisfied with their hotel experiences than ever before in the survey’s 22-year history.

Evolution warning: Are hotel owners in danger of becoming the new taxi drivers? | PhocusWire

Just as the taxi industry responded to new competition by trying to manipulate governments in their favor, hotel chains are ganging up on travel industry innovators such as Airbnb and online travel agencies.

Sadly, just as cab owners ultimately paid the price for their sector’s refusal to innovate, owners of chain hotels will ultimately pay the price for their brands’ ongoing and increasingly expensive fight against progress.

Tendances : L’hôtellerie sort du modèle d’affaires traditionnel  | Hotel and accommodation trends | Scoop.it
Ces dernières années, le marché du locatif est devenu ultra-concurrentiel. Les acquisitions et investissements massifs venant de grands acteurs du tourisme en ligne (Airbnb et consorts, mais aussi les online travel agencies ou OTA !) ont permis de regrouper l’offre, de lui donner une visibilité, mais également de la renouveler, allant jusqu’à proposer des services similaires à ceux de l’hôtellerie (ex. conciergerie). Face à des parts de marché qui reculent, le secteur de l’hôtellerie se remobilise, notamment en sortant peu à peu de son modèle d’affaires traditionnel. Eclairage avec quelques exemples.
