Lankan hotel bookings online at lowest prices

www.SriLanka.Com, a travel and leisure website and Jetwing Hotels has announced a never before online service in Sri Lanka - last minute hotel bookings at lower-than-average prices, via the convenience of the Internet.

Instead of setting room rates by season, prices change dynamically based on the number of hotel rooms that remain unsold for a 14 day period. This ensures that the prices found through this revolutionary service will be drastically more competitive than through traditional distribution channels, a joint press release said.

"Every night approximately 40-50% of all hotel rooms across the country sit empty, yet the fixed costs of running a hotel stay the same," says Prince Seeva, Director Sales, Srilanka.Com.

"Using the last minute system a hotel can now sell its unsold rooms, on a clearance sale format. How do you get started? Simply log on to SriLanka.Com and, using the ‘LastMinute Deals’ engine, look up rates for the dates and locations you desire.
When you find the perfect bargain, you can immediately place your booking in Real-Time format through the site, and start packing your bags! The instant online booking nature of this service ensures the utmost convenience and security for any would-be tourist, holidaymaker or even business traveler,” he said.
