According to Phocuswright, online sales of Travel packages are expected to double in 2006. Packages have taken on a new meaning from the traditional Air & Hotel Packages once purchased by consumers from a Travel Agent. Now you have the ability to “build your own package” with the accessibility of the Internet as the primary tool for travel research. What exactly does building your own package mean to the next generation of travel consumers and suppliers?

With the popularity of dynamic online packaging, hotels are directly competing in this market against airlines and third party intermediaries such as Expedia and Travelocity. Hotel packages offer a wide variety of choices including dining, entertainment tickets, themed components and recreation such as Golf or Spa.

Niagara Falls has always been a preferred destination for unique vacation packages. Most notably Honeymoon and Romance Packages top the list! According to David Searle, General Manager for the Marriott Niagara Falls Fallsview Hotel and Spa, and “Packages make up 36% of our annual sales.” “Our guests have always looked to us to assist in planning complete itineraries and to make recommendations for must see attractions and events in Niagara Falls.” continues Searle.

Making it easy for the guest to customize a personal package has been the key for successful Fallsview hotels. “Even though one of our most preferred packages is the 2 Night Package which includes Fallsview Accommodations, Fallsview Dining and breakfast,” Searle explains, “ We are noticing the new trend of dynamic themed packages such as Casino Concert Packages, Spa Weekend Packages and Romantic Valentine Getaway packages are what our guests are looking for.”

The bundling of entertainment, dining and attractions have become a critical component to supplying hotel guests with an experience and not just a bed to sleep in. With the accessibility and convenience of the Internet as a resource in planning and booking travel, Niagara Falls hotels are finding new ways to differentiate themselves in the marketplace and make it easier for customers to make their travel related decisions.

“Everyone has less leisure time,” says Mike Rotundo, General Manager of the Embassy Suites Niagara Falls Fallsview hotel. “We are finding when couples have time to spend a couple of days together, they want to be pampered and have all the accoutrements arranged on their arrival. Money is not really a factor, it is convenience and the guarantee that all of the details have been looked after.”

With Valentines Day quickly approaching some of the best selling Niagara Falls packages this year range from Romance Packages at the Niagara Falls Marriott including roses, chocolate and intimate Fallsview Dining to Niagara Wine Country and Spa packages.

Niagara Falls Canada attracts over 20 million tourists annually and is home to world class resort hotels, Niagara Parks Attractions, the Niagara Falls Casino Resort, championship Golf courses and Niagara Wine country.
