Short Term Rental Companies Rush to Fill in Airbnb’s China Void
After Airbnb decided to exit the local Chinese market, local players are rushing in: Tujia, Meituan, Muniao, Fliggy and Xiaozhu are large local Chinese online travel and short-term rental players that are reaching out to the local Airbnb hosts to migrate them to their respective platforms, according to this report.
Tujia has set up a special business services team to work with the hosts and will soon launch “one-click launch” migration services, the story says. Similarly, Meituan has also set up a team to provide hosts with services such as quick audits of housing occupancy and quick responses within five minutes.
With more calls and less staff, tour operator turns to pre-booking deposit
One tour operator's bold business move is challenging the efficiency of the custom-travel booking process as travel's roaring comeback tests understaffed businesses.
Custom travel tour operator Authentic Vacations started requiring a $99 refundable deposit of either direct clients or travel advisors who wish to have a representative build an itinerary.
The change was introduced as a way to weed out window-shoppers who don't commit to booking and enable staff to focus on genuine inquiries that convert into sales.
It is an uncommon move for a tour operator to make, industry experts say, and one that takes a page from the travel advisor playbook: Agencies and advisors have long been charging service fees to not waste their time on inquiries that are not serious. Travel Weekly's 2021 Travel Industry Survey found that the share of revenue from service fees increased from 18% to 27% from 2018 to 2020.

Venice Postpones Tourist Entry Fee Until 2023

As visitor numbers returned to pre-pandemic levels earlier in the spring, the city council earlier this year decided to move forward with the entry fee after postponing it due to covid, reports Euronews, but now it will officially launch on Jan. 16, 2023.
This plan to charge has been floating around since 2018. （from Skift）
