We need travellers to experience a major mind shift in the way they think when making a booking.
We all know what we want from the venue and something should click, and we should know, this is it!
When awareness becomes understanding and believed to be “unquestionable” they will see permanent results producing essential changes in their travelling lives.
Starting with Plan A is to prepare the ground where the seed is to be planted and prepare for change.
In Plan A, consider where the mind of the travellers are and then come to understand the importance of the problem you want solved. For example, when travellers are considering booking a stay to celebrate a wedding anniversary it helps to know if there will be toddlers and/or elderly persons joining them! Travellers have to make an overall assessment of who is joining them and where they are taking them, to make an efficient plan to accommodate to your and their satisfaction.
When any of them dared to ask where they were going to stay, she would be tempted to say, “Where I can afford it”. Pam slowly came to the realization, that in fact, they all deserved to be part of the celebration as they meant a lot to Pam and Pete her husband. Just as in planting seeds is a portion of the cost, one must bear in mind costs of compost, water and fertilizers. Therefore, her folks and toddlers would need to be included in the budget.
This gave Pam a great advantage in that she needed a savings plan.
This is the start of realizing that each of the six of them, herself, Pete, mom, dad and the toddlers has unique needs.
Travellers are often discouraged to change, and cling to ways of life that they do not realize are no longer fulfilling.
Plan C begins by listing the known unique needs of the six of you and how to go about finding accommodation that will match these needs in a real-world environment. This involves keeping an open and enquiring mind, the kind of attitude of discovery that a good scientist brings to his or her work.
In Plan C, Pam began to test out her insight with asking Google to find “Matching unique accommodation needs” and found www.choosytravellers.com . Pam filled the first nine positions on Google search results – and displayed five images to support the results.
On further examination of the establishments Pam found a picture gallery and text explaining the images. This convinced Pam that she had found her needs satisfied in a few establishments and could now focus on finding the best price amongst them. Things are going really well for Pam.
In this plan, we accept that needs today will change tomorrow and continue to change. Accidents prove that, toddlers grow up, Pam becomes an Elderly Person one day. By living with our decisions to set needs first, our trips are evidence of our decisions as we take justified pride in satisfying all six of people. At some point, “giving up on price first” is a known problematic behaviour and instead, changes, including unique accommodation needs, becomes part of toddler’s lives too.
