Hosted Accommodation Australia experienced record sales of its gift vouchers over the Christmas period, with a noticeable increase in sales in South Australia. This is inline with information coming from the Retail Association that consumer spending is increasing in services and experience voucher sales, but declining in over-the-counter transactions.
Also, it has been a busy time for reimbursing members for vouchers they accepted from clients hurrying to use 2010 Christmas presents before their vouchers expired.
Vouchers from the Bedshed promotion are appearing as the competition winners are putting their vouchers to good use. However, there is still $20,000 worth not yet redeemed which will mean a lot of business for many members.
The Hosted Accommodation Australia gift voucher program continues to develop invaluable business for members and we will be increasing promotion of it throughout 2012.
