Tourism Costa del SolThe Costa del Sol Hotel Association AHECOS has announced that despite the predictions of less tourism due to the recession, there has actually been 5 per cent more tourists in the first two weeks of July this year than last. This just goes to show that people will still invest in their summer holiday and Southern Spain remains a popular destination.

However, they also revealed that the tourists are spending less money, a sure sign that tourists are tightening their belts. We believe that  the desire for a cheaper holiday can benefit self-catering accommodation bookings if properties are priced right. Owners must be realistic with their pricing and mindful that tourists do not have much money to spend. If you are not getting the bookings you would like to, how about offering a discounted rate? By knocking 10% off your weekly price, or offering 7 nights for the price of 5, you’re likely to win the bookings rather than another property and have a higher occupancy figure throughout the year.

To help our owners we’re highlighting the fact that Spain has been voted the cheapest holiday destination in the eurozone on our blog and in a promotional email to our large database. This and future marketing will show that by going self-catering you can cut the costs of going on holiday, particularly the need to eat out for every meal and constantly find things to keep the kids occupied. We hope this message will resonate with cash-strapped tourists and encourage them to book self-catering.
