Self Check-out Hotel: FAQs
To avoid waiting at the reception desk, self check-out hotels offer an alternative way to complete this process for guests. They can do it independently from hotel staff by using a hotel mobile app, a website widget, or a kiosk in the reception area. The guests confirm their readiness to check out from the hotel, pay for any extra services they used during their stay, and the last thing they need to do is to drop off their keys or key cards at a designated area. Usually, guests will receive an email confirmation of completing the process.
Digitising the check-out process has several advantages for both hotel guests and the staff. For the guests, it allows them to complete the process independently and at any time that works best for them. It eliminates the need to speak to a member of the reception staff, which often requires spending some time in the queue. As many guests decide to check out last minute, the queuing time at the reception can become significant, so avoiding the need to do so makes the experience more convenient for the guest. With the final moments at the hotel free of unnecessary frustrations, the guests are more likely to leave the hotel a positive review.
Self check-out hotels also benefit their staff. It reduces the volume of queries that need to be processed at the reception, saving time but also reducing the paperwork significantly. To enhance this benefit, hotels can choose to automate this process by AI to boost team productivity even further. By freeing up hotel staff from repetitive tasks, hoteliers can enhance job satisfaction and retention in their teams.
Over the last few years, self check-out hotels have become increasingly more common. The pandemic demanded more contactless procedures and hotel technology is at a stage where this type of systems can be implemented easily and at a relatively low cost. This self check-out system is convenient for guests and hotel staff, secure, and integrates easily with other hotel management systems such as financial and payment gateways, maintenance or housekeeping.
Another reason is that most guests use mobile phones and mobile apps every day as part of their lifestyle and they are used to completing many processes independently, without interaction with staff. As they are familiar with such systems, they may be more willing to engage with self check-outs with confidence and trust.
