Bartercard Review - Econo Lodge Park Lane

How to save over $350K in your hotel 

We all know how much money gets sunk into a business - from maintenance and repairs to upgrades and new systems.  But Econo Lodge Park Lane is going against the grain by using Bartercard to save over $350,000 - equating to approximately $50,000 per year.

 

It all sparked with a bright idea of saving $10,000 on lightbulbs 


“I found out I could source LED lightbulbs from Bartercard and cover the cost using trade dollars instead of cash.  Since then, I’ve used Bartercard to conserve cash on brand new beds, lights, furniture, food and beverage supplies, advertising, a new website and web hosting – coming to over $350,000 in savings.”

Greg has also used Bartercard to cover the cost of accommodation in Tasmania, New Zealand and the Norfolk Islands.  

“I found Bartercard is a great way to stay competitive.  It’s not only helped me save cash, but Bartercard members are actively looking to spend their trade dollars, so they will come to you instead of the competitor down the road.”

Trading room nights for business spends

To earn trade dollars, Greg takes bookings on Bartercard.
 
“We receive 1-2 bookings per week with Bartercard – it fills up empty rooms which would otherwise sit empty.  Trade dollars have the same value as cash, and travellers love it because it doesn’t eat into their bank account.  Its really helped us stay on top of the expenses and competition.”
