The PayNowStayLater online platform has been launched today where hotels will publish attractive packages for people to book and pay for hotel rooms now and their bookings will be reserved for the next two years.

Minister for Tourism Faiyaz Koya says hotels and resorts will be able to generate quick business, earn instant required cash-flow, and complement direct booking strategies with a minimal mark-up of 5.5 percent commission.

Koya says the online platform will open doors of opportunity for hoteliers, with the added benefit of having a partner conduct marketing and sales conversions at little to no cost.

The Minister adds that potential travellers, will have access to deals through one platform with flexible travel conditions, longer travel period duration for guaranteed bookings and money back guarantee cover assurance.

He says this concept presents the highpoints of purchasing future travel, as a niche solution, in their bid towards accepting the new normal.

General Manager of Pacific Bedbank, the developers of the platform, Ioane Naivalarua Junior says 15 hotels have signed up while they are negotiating terms with 8 other hotels.
