Per Person Per Night improves accommodation booking for travelling contractors
While many industries in the UK are struggling under the challenges of Covid-19, the construction industry is still going strong, but they are facing a whole new set of challenges.
Ironically, the very people who build our buildings have found it hard to find accommodation when working away from home.
Lockdown, social distancing and the closure of non essential businesses such as hotels have meant that booking sites such as airbnb.com and booking.com are no longer the goto place for contractors searching for overnight accommodation solutions.
This has left contractors with a big problem trying to locate suitable places for their workers to rest at night.
Specialist Booking Operators
The good news is that there are operators that work in this niche if you know where to look.
Theo Bailey is a Director at Per Person Per Night, a Booking company which is accommodating contractors. Theo, said: “Whilst we have had to introduce some social distancing measures with check-ins and check-outs, our model has not really changed at all.
“We have always provided good quality accommodation at affordable rates and because our market has always been contractors, we are finding repeat bookings are up.”
5 key things to ensure when booking accommodation for contractors includes:
- Contractors should have access to premises without the need for regular contact with staff.
- There should be no common areas which can provide grounds for exposure.
- Accommodation should be clean and disinfected.
- The Operator should have accommodation agents that operate 24/7 but are housed remotely.
- The Operator you book through should have experience in the sector.
At a time when hotels have empty beds, but unable to offer them, Contractors must have everything in place to keep building and keep working.
Per Person Per Night can help contractors find accomodation availability, taking the stress off contractors, so their workers can rest easy, keep working, and keep earning.
