Holiday, here we come!Personal receipt of keys from the host is still the best way to start to a relaxing, wonderful and unforgettable hotel or holiday home vacation. For more than one reason, this is one of the most important parts of the greeting procedure upon arrival at the holiday destination.A personal and warm welcome by the hotelier or landlord makes the check-in at the hotel or vacation home twice as nice. Not only does it provide the newly arrived guests with quick and easy access to their accommodation.On-site presence of friendly, qualified and service-oriented staff and direct contact to the host creates a familiar, intimate and stress-free atmosphere already upon arrival and makes it much easier to get into holiday mood right away from the start.This way, the guests immediately feel home and well looked after. They realize that they are in good hands and that they don´t have to care for themselves and don´t have to worry about anything – best conditions to enjoy the best time of the year.Surely the hotelier wouldn’t want to keep his guests waiting for several hours at closed doors without being taken care of and without direct access to their accommodation. They would be exhausted from the journey and wasting their precious time sitting on their luggage.This would leave them without orientation, causing them stress and displeasure and making them feel they have to organise their holiday by themselves. This is definitely not what they are looking for. They expect a bit more service and truly deserve an all-round carefree vacation package.The ritualised welcoming procedure is everyday, common practice in main tourist hotspots all over the world and in all major international hotel chains. Here, quick, easy and secure handover of keys during check-in proceeds quite smoothly as these hotels are open 24 hours a day and have receptions occupied all around the clock.But reality is mostly quite different in remotely located holiday destinations and in smaller hotels off the beaten tourist track – much to the vacationers´ discomfort. For economic reasons, many smaller hotels and holiday home agencies simply cannot afford permanently occupied receptions.Moreover, in isolated, less well accessible villages, the hotel-keeper or the landlord often do not live nearby, leaving the reception unoccupied or the hotel closed most time of the day, especially in the off-season – so here quick, easy and secure handover of keys is the exception rather than the rule most time of the year.In these cases, key safes are an ideal solution. More than any other safety product, they allow easy, secure and comfortable deposit and handover of keys and key cards to holiday guests, providing them with quick and direct access to their accommodation 24 hours a day.Use of key boxes has many advantages for both the landlord and the vacationers especially in the case of a delayed arrival of the guests due to flights suspended or cancelled at short notice or late bus and train connections.If the travelers´ time schedule is disrupted by unforeseen flight cancellations or suspensions and if they can´t inform their host in time about their delayed arrival, they don´t have to keep him waiting all day because easy, secure and comfortable handover of keys can also be accomplished even in the absence of the hotelier by use of key safes.
