Economy needs both reform and investment

Economy needs both reform and investment | Travel Leisure & Tourism News | Scoop.it
In Europe, countries such as Greece and Italy will not get sustained growth simply from stimulus spending and easy money. Most have rigid labor markets, high labor costs and inefficient and protected industries and guilds. Without change, these economies might get a temporary boost but will remain uncompetitive in the long run. Italy ranks 73rd on the “Doing Business” survey — behind most emerging markets.

Airlines versus hotels in the battle for the best pricing strategy | Travel Industry News & Conferences - EyeforTravel

Airlines versus hotels in the battle for the best pricing strategy | Travel Industry News & Conferences - EyeforTravel | Travel Leisure & Tourism News | Scoop.it
Be it for the nature of the business, organisational structure or even the agreements signed for third party distribution, there are many ways that pricing as a discipline differs at airlines vis-a-vis hotel companies.
Libero's insight:

Compagnie aeree contro hotel nella battaglia per la strategia migliore nel pricing. L'attività volatile dei prezzi delle compagnie aeree sembra essere più difficile a causa della natura estremamente competitiva del settore e la battaglia intensa sui mercati internazionali che sono stati non regolamentati per molti anni. In effetti ci sono molti fattori esterni e globali che influiscono sulla loro performance finanziaria.

Margaret Dahliani Lim's curator insight, March 23, 2015 6:29 PM

From this article by Eye for Travel (2013), it is indeed people will find the best price for both flight ticket and also accommodation for them to stay in.  It is quiet a hard situation for the airlines and hotel in which they have to compete with each other on whose going to have best pricing strategy. Since there are so many competitors  that are making the best out of it, take advantages on traveller by do some promotion, packet deals and many more ways to attract customers. This happened to change the organisational structure of hotels in which now they are only focusing BAR (Best Available Rate strategy) and not giving their focus on package pricing anymore. As the growth of the internet users, hotel rates are clearer to be looked up than before. Therefore, these two industries are competing with each other to have the best strategy in pricing to increase their number of customer and gain profit. However, I think it might be a good idea if they work together to bring out the combination of flight and hotel deals in one package.
