June, July, August recorded strongest uplift in per room revenue at 64% vs same period in 2020
Coastal Oregon, Miami, Myrtle beach, Houston and San Antonio saw highest RevPar in 2022 for OYO US
Global travel technology company, OYO’s US operations ended 2022 on a high with a 46% increase since Covid in revenue per available room for its hotels (RevPar). While the increase in RevPar was higher throughout 2022, when compared to the Covid lows of 2020, the strongest uplift in per room revenue, at 64%, was recorded during the peak season months of June, July, August vs the same period in 2020. This growth was consistently strong with even during the low season months of November and December showing 53% increase vs the same period in 2020.
For OYO US, coastal Oregon, Miami, Myrtle beach, Houston and San Antonio emerged as the destinations with highest RevPar in 2022. Travel recovery was largely led by domestic travel in the US. According to OYO’s data Sumter, Niagara Falls, Brownsville, Columbia & Yuma emerged as top domestic destinations with the best Y-o-Y growth (vs 2021).
Talking about the recovery, Gautam Swaroop, CEO OYO International said, “We are seeing a steady rise in per room revenue throughout 2022, with even shoulder season (September, October) outperforming and witnessing a 44% rise vs Covid. While many experts and industry watchers touted that the industry will bounce back to normalcy only by 2025, we are seeing consistent growth and uptick in bookings. Like most markets around the globe domestic tourism has fuelled growth in many of the popular tourist destinations like the Niagara Falls. Travel industry has truly shifted gears in 2022 and this recovery is only a precursor to a ‘sold-out’ 2023.”
OYO offers hotels access to a large base of regular customers through its app and website, and also lists hotels on multiple Online Travel Agents (OTAs) to boost booking demand and, therefore, revenue. OYO’s best-in-class Artificial Intelligence-enabled pricing software automatically drives the best booking prices across all channels, based on room type, seasonality and other factors, therefore, enabling such doubling of revenues.
