Demand for bookings of sixth-cycle designated quarantine hotels double on Trip.com

Since the launch of designated quarantine hotels in early 2021, Trip.com has recorded bookings in a total of over 200,000 room nights, helping more than 10,000 Hong Kong residents returning from overseas.

Hong Kong – The Government announced the list of sixth-cycle designated quarantine hotels on October 19 for travellers completing the quarantine period within December 1, 2021 to February 28, 2022, covering peak seasons such as Christmas and Chinese New Year. Despite the high demand for quarantine hotel rooms in Hong Kong, Trip.com has been working with the 27 designated quarantine hotels to source rooms to meet demand.

Since the launch of designated quarantine hotels in early 2021, Trip.com has recorded bookings in a total of over 200,000 room nights, helping more than 10,000 Hong Kong residents returning from overseas. As the year-end holidays approach, during the week of October 17, 2021, which coincided with the Government announcing the list of the sixth cycle designated quarantine hotels, Trip.com saw strong and increasing demand for designated quarantine hotel bookings, with booking orders hitting a record high during the period. Compared to the week the Government announced the list of fifth cycle designated quarantine hotels, the relevant orders increased by 179%.

Trip.com has been working closely with designated quarantine hotel partners since early this year and created a “designated quarantine hotel” webpage for users, aiming to assist travellers in checking quarantine requirements and booking hotel packages for returning to Hong Kong in the simplest way, offering the best user experience with its one-stop services.

Hillman Lam, General Manager of Trip.com Hong Kong, said “Christmas and Chinese New Year mean a lot to Hong Kong people and these have always been the peak seasons for overseas Hong Kong people to return home to celebrate the festivities with family. However, journeys for many overseas Hong Kong people returning home have been affected by the pandemic, where they require more preparations than they were previously used to in the pre-pandemic time. ‘Your all-in-one travel app’ is Trip.com’s commitment to users in Hong Kong. We hope to simplify the process of searching for designated quarantine hotels for Hong Kong people who work or study aboard, and to provide a one-stop information and options service to ensure hassle-free return trips to their hometown.”
