A Nigerian hotel has announced plans to offer hourly bookings to interested lodgers from July 1.
In a post via its Instagram page, the brand named Per Hour said it will disrupt the hospitality sector in Africa.
The predominant business model across many hotels has been to bill lodgers on daily basis.
Hence, apartment users pay for a full 24-hour stay, even if they check out before it elapses.
Per Hour said its lodgers will now have the opportunity to book rooms and apartments on an hourly basis.
The company revealed that it is currently operating across Abuja, Lagos, and Ibadan.
It said the new model will help save “up to 70%” of the normal booking fee.
“July 1st, 2022, we disrupt the hospitality sector of Africa forever,” the caption of its e-flier read in part.
The announcement comes days after Red Gourmet Kitchen, a Nigerian restaurant, offered a 13% discount to all customers who own a permanent voter card (PVC).
The promotion tagged ‘Special Democracy Day Offer’ was used to encourage people to get their PVCs to achieve increased political participation in the 2023 elections.
