How profitable is it really to buy international brands?

first_imgBrands do not guarantee an exclusive increase in revenue per leased unit although this has proven to be a key factor in choosing an international brand in the past. But of course everything is subject to the rules of supply and demand of the market in which the accommodation facility operates.Buying a license from international brands can help in most cases, but it does not guarantee hoteliers instant success and wealth, commented Carmen Hui, commercial director of hotel ownership and partnership, for Booking.com. Continuing the analysis, she pointed out how the supply and demand for branded and independent hotels in four key tourist cities is moving and how this may influence the decision to buy the brand.The rapid development of technology has also led to changes in the average amount of revenue per rented unit in branded but also in independent hotels. The strength of international brands has always relied on numbers, visibility and a large marketing budget, but the owners of independent facilities are increasingly competing in the global market and trying to attract visitors by offering a unique experience. This is supported by the aforementioned new technologies that provide independent hotels with flexible solutions such as e-commerce, marketing to tools that profile visitors – of course all for the purpose of rising above the framework of previous business.Hui emphasizes the changes that these new technologies have made it easier for stakeholders to access the market and what they have brought, especially when it comes to buying an international brand. Namely, it does not guarantee an exclusive increase in revenue per leased unit, although this has proven to be a key factor in choosing an international brand in the past. Everything is of course subject to the rules of supply and demand of the market in which the accommodation facility operates.For example, four major tourist centers were observed: London, Paris, New York, and Cape Town to determine revenue trends per rented unit in the case of three- or four-star facilities in 2016 and 2017. Also, trends were observed through four segments: global chains, holiday homes and apartments, cottages and other unique places including those that do not fall into the category of local and independent. The final step of the analysis includes independently branded units and smaller national, regional and local chains.In all four tourist points, we notice differences in how demand moves relative to supply.In the case of London, global chains and rental cottages record the same revenue per rental unit as the local and independent segment. It ranges somewhere between 20 and 25%, except in the case of cottages, which due to their seasonal character, vary throughout the year. There is a different picture in Paris. At the very top, everyone competes for their share of the pie: both global and local and independent, while the demand for cottages lags behind them, but records a healthy and stable continuity of demand. In New York, the opposite is true. Cottages are much more in the focus of tourists and unquestionably ahead of global chains, locals and independents. Moreover, the biggest explosion in demand for cottages is during the summer months when it grows over 30%. Global chains in Cape Town are not so dominant compared to the other three segments, and with the demand for cottages experiencing alternating ups and downs every few months. For example, during the Christmas holidays, cottage rentals outperformed unit rentals in global chain facilities, while this reversed in the months that followed.What is ultimately recommended to anyone who wants to invest in one of the well-known brands is that it is first necessary to take into account the costs necessary for the accommodation facility to operate in accordance with all physical and operational standards, and answer the question of whether the purchased brand will benefit be enough to smooth out all incurred and running costs? Certainly, the purchasing power and profile of visitors and how much they are willing to set aside for the offered experience should not be neglected.On the other hand, the path to independence is fraught with numerous challenges and obstacles, and in most cases the path of the two is more difficult. However, there is much more freedom in designing the content in order to offer visitors a unique arrangement and personalized experience with a focus on every detail – from design to gastronomic offer.last_img read more
