Prices May Vary But Bartering Is
Still The Best Deal!
It's very interesting to observe how industries governed by the
clock, package and market their services. The importance of time
takes on a new meaning when companies have to "use it or lose it."
Today hoteliers are some of the more creative thinkers in regards to
pricing and selling their product. They see the wisdom of selling in
a variety of ways, including the bartering of their space.
Here's a look at the different ways they move their inventory:
→Super-saver rates, for those who make reservations at least 29 days
in advance. (This marketing strategy is similar to the airlines.)
→Corporate rates, which typically are discounted 10% to 50% … when
one shows a company ID, or even a business card.
members of clubs, organizations and other national affiliations such
as frequent flyer plans, auto or oil-company travel clubs, and AARP
→Special weekend guest rates. These concessions
are due to increased weekend vacancies in the big city hotels that
cater to business travelers Monday through Thursday.
accommodations are available from tour organizers, when one hustles
up four or more paying travelers for their tours.
Hotel industry accounting firm Laventhol & Horwath reports that it's
often possible to get a better hotel rate than the one posted. All
you need to do is ask. (Discounts of 10% to 20% were available for
the asking at one-third of 270 luxury hotels surveyed by the firm.)
For members of a trade exchange, often the easiest and best rates
for hotel rooms are those acquired with trade dollars. That's
because those dollars have superb leverage having been earned at
your company's variable cost-of-doing business.

your tax accountant.)

holiday floral arrangements, it's the perfect way to thank your
clients for their patronage.
Utilize barter to reward hard-working employees. Give them gifts
purchased with trade dollars, or holiday bonuses where the
assignment of trade dollars can be used at their discretion.
From banquet halls and
catering services to decorations, barter will enable you to host an
event that is both enjoyable and affordable.

will enjoy, scrip that is redeemable at restaurants and hotels in
Barter income is taxable in the year it is earned. You might
consider making a tax-deductible contribution of trade dollars to
non-profit organizations that will accept your trade dollar
donation. You may also designate a charitable group of your choice,
and ask your trade broker to establish an account for them.
