-Moves upscale in accommodation and services, with an enhanced offering that is more flexible and better segmented in order to counter competition from the “collaborative” economy.
-Simplifying and digitalising the customer journey.
-A careful revenue management policy aimed especially at increasing prices in the peak season and capturing additional volumes in periods of lower demand.
