I was approached by John from PreTravels.com to prepare a guest post for my readers. Guest posts aren’t something I’ve really featured on my blog thus far. I thought it might be a nice change of pace for you. Please let me know in the comments if you’d like to see more content from other writers.
Decide how available or unavailable you want to be, and prepare those around you. Let your coworkers know in advance that you’re taking a vacation day and will be completely unreachable. Set up an auto-away message on your email to drive home the point. If you do not live alone and are working with a larger budget, consider checking into a hotel for the night or even for a few hours during the day (thank you, Day Use).
Hotels are for more than just nighttime sleeping. Julien Siegfried from Dayuse, once a hotelier himself, realised hotels were missing out on whole other revenue stream when he saw an empty pool and a quiet restaurant during the day.
Dayuse.co.uk was founded in 2010. Dayuse.co.uk has more user-friendly interfaces than Between 9 and 5, even though it covers less countries. You can access the website or use a smart phone app for iPhone or Android. It’s probably worth downloading to your phone if you are visiting the countries covered, so you are prepared in the event of a delay.
Apps can make traveling easier. Four new apps remove the stress of buying airport food in time for your connecting flight, booking a day rate at a hotel, selecting lodging with your travel companions, and walking to places you want to see in a city. Download these apps now to streamline your next travel experience.
Top hotels in major cities around the world are offering daytime room rentals at cut-rate prices through tech startup DayUse.com.
While the two products are fairly similar, there are a couple of differences that may sway you one way or the other, depending on your preferences. As You Stay is available only as an app while Day Use is strictly available as a website.
The antidote to long layover hell. DayUse offers up a selection of necessities and services to let you drop in for a shower, or sleep in a real bed while you wait for your next flight. With huge discounts for the short stay and a massive offering of venues, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Has a shower or bed ever sounded better then after a 14 hour flight?
Choosing the right app can be just as confusing as deciding where to stay or how to get there. So we’ve combed through dozens of the latest travel apps (and a few mobile websites) to determine which tools are the most useful for planning a trip, getting around, finding friends, and saving money along the way. Unless noted, all apps are free and available for Android and iOS.
The way we book travel has changed completely over the last few years so it’s no surprise the way we see traditional models has also altered. As Dayuse’s name suggests, the platform lets you book hotel rooms during the daytime – for meetings, interviews or just to freshen up. The app and website enable rooms to be reserved in more than 2,000 hotels in 15 countries.
