With COVID19 creating chaos with foreign holidays this year, the staycation has seen a big revival and holidaying in the UK looks set to continue into next year too, as travellers look to avoid last minute cancellations and quarantines.
With this in mind UK holiday parks will be doing everything they can to make their facilities safe and hygienic. Recent reports suggest cleanliness is one of the driving factors when choosing where to holiday in the UK, so offering a totally cashless holiday experience is a huge hygiene positive for the customer, and a potential revenue driver for the park.
Now more than ever cleanliness is front of mind for all of us wherever we go, and making payments in busy places is no exception. Contactless is the safe payment of choice, it’s cleaner than handling cash and no need to even touch the terminal or pin pad. By adding this method of payment to more of your onsite services and facilities you are making it simpler for the customer and increasing the opportunities for higher spend.
VMC have a number of flexible options suitable for holiday park operations. The Vendotek payment terminal can be fitted to almost any unattended machine in any setting. Ideal for parking, charging, power, amusements, food and drink, vending, laundry, bike hire, pool tables and much more. The possibilities are endless.
For parks wanting to incentivise and reward customers for onsite spend, our Flex closed loop system enables a private onsite payment system for all your customers to use during their stay. Providing a choice of payment types; cashless, contactless, mobile payments and QR codes, it’s also packed with other features like loyalty, meal deals and promotions.
Flex can be managed easily by the customer via a mobile app, where they can choose to top up their account balance as they go or spend and settle on check out. Other customer friendly features include parental controls on child accounts, and even the option to start saving money in their Flex account before they arrive, so the holiday fund is ready to use when they get there.
For the customer this creates a seamless payment experience on their holiday, not needing cash to pay for anything at all from start to finish keeps things effortless and simple.
For the park operator a cashless system is a real opportunity to incentivise and increase onsite spend, plus it offers your customers maximum choice during their stay – a win-win!
