Business Idea !!
When a tourist goes to any place, he/she spends a huge lot of money in living and accommodation. Then so as to save money he goes for a low standard hotel or lodge where he makes a compromise with the service quality so as to save money which he will utilize in other activities. So what can be done so as to make the tourist happy by giving high quality services at a lower cost.
• If a person who has a big home in which some rooms are unutilized, then he can better make the tourists stay at his place and charge him accordingly. • Tourist will be provided all the services which he receives in a hotel. • E.g Homely and good cooked food of the tourist’s choice and preference. • He should be paid full attention like he gets in his home. • If the owner of the house has the car, then that can also be utilized for the travelling purpose of the tourist against some affordable charges. • As you are the local resident of that place then you can help him in visiting different places of the city which are famous for tourist purposes.
How should a tourist contact you?
• Do proper marketing of your business with the help of newspaper. The Advertisement should be published at the national level so that the person whole round the country can know about you. • One can also go for making a website so as to market his service based business.
