7 ways you can support the travel industry from home

While it is sadly not possible for many of us to travel at the moment, or even leave our houses, there are still some small things you can do (without going anywhere) which will go a long way.

Postpone, don’t cancel

If it is financially possible for you to postpone your trip rather than cancelling, you can still look forward to your holiday while helping the hotel and airline you have booked. Our Members Only rate is flexible, requires no pre-payment, and allows for last-minute changes where necessary. If anything, you will just have more time to plan your dream itinerary from start to finish…

Give the gift of travel

With the festive season fast approaching, give the gift of a future luxury experience by purchasing one of our SLH Gift Cards. Available to order and send to your special someone (or yourself!) online, our e-gift cards can be redeemed at over 500 boutique hotels in over 90 countries as part of a stay, for when the world is safe to travel again.

As well as memory-making gifts, many of our hotels have online boutiques where you can shop their lifestyle collections, from spa samples and impossibly soft slippers to homemade organic produce – like these Sicilian farmshop delicacies from Susafa, which will soon be available to purchase online.

Share some positivity on social media

Follow your favourite travel brands on social media to stay inspired, and virtually venture the world from the comfort of your own home. If you’re feeling nostalgic, we’d love to see your ‘throwbacks’ to sunnier or snowier times, or where you’re dreaming of travelling to next – just be sure to tag us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest with #smallluxuryhotels so we can relive or look forward to your travels with you.

Subscribe away

Stock up on inspiration by subscribing to our YouTube channel, or by signing up to our INVITED loyalty club which will not only give you exclusive benefits when you next stay with us (and every time you stay with SLH), but also means you will receive our regular newsletters filled with travel tips, insider guides, and special edits from our Travel Journal digitally delivered to your door.

Leave a review

Once the world opens up again, a positive review might make all the difference for someone else deciding which hotel to book. Whenever our members stay with us, we invite you to submit a review via email three days after check-out – we read each and every one of your submissions, and love to hear about your wonderful experiences with our hotels. So if you’ve been putting off writing about a previous stay, now is the time to share a few words about your hotel highlights.

Get in touch

Do you have a memorable moment from an SLH stay you would like to share with us, to thank a member of staff for going above and beyond, or have you particularly enjoyed a recent article on our Journal? No personal message is too small to share, and we are always touched whenever our members contact us – never more so than during these difficult times.

Keep dreaming

Make a moodboard, fill up a scrapbook or a photo album, bookmark beautiful images on social media or in travel magazines, and save down articles which have inspired you. By continuing to read, research, and plan, your travel dreams will eventually come true – and we can’t wait to join you on your next adventure, whenever or wherever that may be.
