Some places sell on behalf of guests because of force majeure, do not travel on the set holiday, there are many places that need to be liquidated to recover capital … so close to the holiday, thought that the tour was on fire, sold out, and then appeared again. Currently, there is a paradoxical story, many places are selling urgently, liquidating and discharging hotel rooms and villas in Phu Quoc with cheaper prices than before.

“Before the Lunar New Year, the situation of ‘burning’ rooms is very much, so guests planning to go out on the occasion of April 30 and May 1 often book very early. Therefore, up to this point, many travel companies have “hugged” the hotel room fund in Phu Quoc too much but have not sold it all, forcing them to “discharge” to sell at very “soft” prices to recover capital. .
If before, the tour to Phu Quoc had to be over 6 million VND/person including airfare and hotel, now the price is just over 5 million VND, about 20-30% cheaper, “said Ms. Tuyet.

Agents “hug” many room funds, air tickets now have to enter the customer’s name, so they are forced to lower the price and sell liquidation.
There was no phenomenon of guests canceling or postponing the booked tour, but in the itinerary that had a schedule to visit the islands, there was a change in direction due to the forecast of bad weather at sea.

However, guests canceled up to 80% of the rooms booked on May 1 and 2; On April 29 and 30, guests also canceled up to 30% due to the customer’s anxiety about the weather, which is forecasted to be windy, stormy, and afraid to go by train.
“This number also causes damage to the hotel because after 2 years of the epidemic, it has to be closed, now guests have the opportunity to go out, but due to the influence of the weather, customers cancel, the hotel can not force guests. and must be flexible to support. The hotel refunds 100% of the deposit to the guest to keep its reputation; I hope that on another occasion guests will remember and stop by my hotel,” Mr. Khanh said.
