Three or more generations of a family traveling together is referred to as multigenerational travel. It is a fascinating area of hotel administration since the various demands and preferences of these visitors enable the development of specialized offers, which in turn increase revenue. All forms of hospitality, including hotels, bed and breakfasts, resorts, cruise lines, and even hostels, fall under one umbrella. It all boils down to providing the appropriate services and goods to this market.
Consider the following conveniences and services, for instance, to make traveling with multiple generations easier:
- Packages- It's crucial to look after the visitors and make sure they have time to unwind, especially for families. Therefore, addressing this market group requires developing solutions that address its needs.
- Amenities & Services- Anything may enhance the overall experience, from having a kids' game room to something as simple as having coloring books accessible at the reception.
- Activities- A clever method to provide visitors new experiences is to have unique activities made to accommodate groups and families. Whether it's a family activity where everyone can join and have a good time together, or a kid's activity to relieve the parents of child care.
- In-room- Keep in mind the things that can be done inside the rooms themselves to appeal to this group. For more entertainment, it may be a fantastic idea to offer various streaming services for people of all ages or in-room games that can be played on the TV.
- Other services- Family cooking workshops, scavenger hunts, and entertainment nights with family-friendly activities are excellent choices for additional services your hotel might offer (quiz night, karaoke, etc.)
An extended family vacation can be tough to plan. First of all, when you have a wide collection of family members at all ages and stages of life, it might be challenging to please everyone. Long days at an amusement park are likely to be exhausting for parents and grandparents, despite being enjoyable for active children and teenagers. Even though visiting big cities and museums is fun for teenagers, it might be tedious for their younger siblings. When visiting a national park, someone in the party, whether they are young, old, or in between, is sure to moan that the weather is either too hot or too cold. This will depend on the season.
