According to research by late availability hotel room website LateRooms.com, business travellers are paying far too much for Wi-Fi internet connection in their hotel room. The company highlights that hotels charge ”10 ($20) on average per day for broadband services, which are often free in caf”s and bars.
LateRooms.com suggests business travellers ask a series of questions before booking, including whether they will incur extra charges for using the internet at the hotel; if there are any minimum charges for using the internet; if there are any areas of the hotel where internet access is free; and whether or not the wireless network is secure.
”One of the biggest bugbears for business travellers is paying inflated charges to access emails or surf the Net whilst away from home but it”s a service they really can”t do without,” said LateRooms.com development director Tony Walsh. ”The UK hotel industry is missing a trick as fast internet access is becoming one of the key differentiators for hotels looking to attract valuable business guests.”
