It takes more than stunning vistas and attractions to make tourists come back again and again to a destination. There is no denying that these can lure in curious travelers. However, what really makes tourists come back to a destination is the overall experience that they had.
As such, it is the duty of all those who are involved in the travel industry of an area to provide their guests with experiences that they will truly cherish and remember.
It cannot be denied that travelling carries with it certain risks. Acknowledging this and enforcing the necessary strategies can help minimise, if not totally eliminate, potential dangers — thus bolstering the success of the travel industry in a certain area.
Hotels and similar establishments can enforce a wide variety of strategies that can ensure the safety of guests and their belongings for the duration of their stay. These may include vetting staff members, hiring professional security personnel, training staff, installing key card locks, putting in fire alarms and more.
Another effective yet simple strategy that accommodations managers can provide guests is the provision of metal lockers where patrons can temporarily store their belongings, ensuring their safety and peace of mind.
Tourists, in particular, may be vulnerable to theft, especially in local attractions where they can be easily identified by unscrupulous elements. This is why seasoned travellers always leave valuables at their hotel rooms while venturing out to explore local attractions. Certainly, it is the duty of everyone involved in the local travel and tourism industry to ensure the well-being of tourists in order to protect the image of a destination, hotels and similar establishments, and to take a proactive stance toward the protection of guests.
By providing hotel guests with cheap lockers, local accommodations owners encourage travellers to opt for their personal safety and well-being as well as those of their precious belongings. Although this does not necessarily eliminate the possibility of tourists being victims of theft, the chances of such becomes slimmer.
As for the hotel staff, accommodations should carefully perform background checks on potential hires. The establishment should also keep a detailed and updated record of staff members that enter guest rooms. Finally, keys should be immediately returned to the appropriate department/managers. Hotel keys should never be allowed to be taken out of the premises.
Safety is and should be a concern of everyone – from the hotel to local tourism authorities and even tourists. With heightened awareness and enforcement of simple yet effective strategies, adverse situations can be avoided, thus giving tourists pleasant experiences.
