St Christopher’s Inns is giving travellers more spontaneity with their new offer of no upfront payment and flexible cancellation. The European backpacker hostel chain has launched their ‘Your Trip. Your Story. Your Way campaign‘ which allows guests to cancel their booking free of charge up to 3 days (72 hours) before arrival with a full refund. Guests are not required to make a payment on their booking until they arrive. The company said this initiative gives their guests freedom to discover Europe their way.
“St Christopher’s Inns are constantly striving to deliver the best possible experience to our guests in an ever evolving hostel market. The youth travel sector demands greater flexibility than most as their travel plans are constantly changing. Our market leading free cancellation, no deposit booking offer at extremely competitive rates meets this demand,” said Franz Burghoff, Group Sales and Revenue Director at Beds and Bars.
“We are really excited to launch our new campaign Your Trip. Your Story. Your Way, in conjunction with our new no deposit and free cancellation booking model. Travel is all about discovery so it’s important for us to allow the travel community to move freely and make those spontaneous decisions – creating their own story on the go,” says Sophie Herbert, UK Marketing Manager at Beds and Bars.
The hostel chain also recently released the St Christopher’s Inns Travel App, which allows travellers to earn points during their stay and interact using the first real time in-house social network. The company said it has reduced reliance on third party referral partners with their own booking engine and launched the world’s first online check-in system for hostels.
