For as long as we’ve existed, there has been a clear distinction of people depending on their behavioural patterns, and one can see it in almost everything, travel included. We are all aware of the ‘kind’ of travellers we are, and certainly fall into any one of these categories. If you are always postponing for a little later, you’re the ‘procrastinator’. If you enjoy spontaneous plans, you probably are part of the adventurous lot. If you’re doing everything on time, you are the idealist guru. And if you’re none of them, then you probably belong to the most interesting and beneficial of the lot – the early birds.

The saying ‘The early bird catches the worm.’ is true enough as early birds always save the maximum from systematically organized travel trips. From planning to packing and booking to wrapping, your early birds make up for the highest travellers’ group, who enjoy planning their way and reaping the best deals and discounts before the high seasons get the best out of them.

Consumer purchase patterns have been studied for over decades, prompting brands and services to strategize their way to catch this target segment in their peak decision of purchase. Hospitality brands too have overtime learnt the pattern, making the ‘early bird’ discounts a favorite among these consumers. Now while, hotel brands specifically target holiday planners with their early bird rates, another sector of real estate that is offering its consumers exciting discounts is the Hotel Apartments industry.

While hotels are dedicated to short stays, serviced apartments offer a home away from home to both short and long stay travellers, catering to all kinds of consumers in business and leisure. Early bird promotions for serviced apartments allow travellers, especially those on the lookout for big discounts to compare and grab amongst the best deals in town.

While the hotel industry is a cat competition, hotel apartments are more niche in the sense that they target people who enjoy their own private spaces when travelling away from home, or people who are bound to travel to another country for a longer period, or big families who prefer the comfort of hotel apartments where they can spend time together.

Among the big players, The Ascott Limited, a leading international owner-operator lodging company from Singapore takes the lead in offering its guests the best possible value-added services and promos. A home away from home for many, Ascott properties around the globe cater to different categories of travellers who enjoy diverse living habits. Spanning Studio to Three-Bedroom apartments and penthouses that are complemented with comprehensive amenities, living is a sheer treat at Ascott.

In the Middle East & Turkey, Ascott has already marked its presence with its signature properties in Al Khobar, Dubai, Istanbul, Jeddah, Manama, Muscat and Riyadh. As an ongoing promotion, the brand is offering guests the liberty to plan their travel stays in advance by offering them an amazing up to 25% off.
