The offer from the online booking group is in response to many requests on social media and elsewhere from non-governmental organisations for rooms, apartments, and homes for those affected by the travel restrictions and waiting to be repatriated.

Dushyant Dwibedy, country head at OYO Vietnam, said as a provider of essential services and a key stakeholder in the tourism and travel industry, OYO has an added responsibility to ensure those who are in need of clean affordable living spaces have access to just that.

He said, “We hope that by offering rooms at discounted prices, we can alleviate some of the burden shouldered by these guests and ensure they have ready access to clean affordable living spaces as they wait to return home to their respective countries.”

Dwibedy added that OYO continues to receive requests. “They come from our hotel partners in other cities and provinces wanting to be included in the list of hotels that have extended help to guests stranded in Vietnam.” The list will be updated regularly and the group urges all in need of rooms to call the OYO Careline for an updated list of hotels.

“Our effort reflects the organisation’s culture and values, which we hope would spur others in Vietnam to help our guests during this challenging and uncertain time,” Dwibedy said.

OYO will continue to accept reservations and check-ins from all guests during the entire period of social distancing in Vietnam. The group is also offering special long-stay rates for foreign guests who are stranded following the travel restrictions and need suitable living spaces during this period. These long-stay rates also apply to guests who want to practice self-quarantine at this time. At present, a great number of foreigners and other visitors staying in cities and provinces across the country cannot return to their hometowns due to the interruption of international flights. Particularly, in Ho Chi Minh City, more than 400 tourists from various nations including Japan, Germany, Russia, and France are staying in over 30 top-class hotels in the city.

Effective immediately, international guests can book rooms by contacting the OYO Careline on (+84) 924 970 366 or (+91) 9811 882 750 (WhatsApp) 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The properties involved are based in cities/provinces including Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, Vung Tau, Nha Trang, and Phu Quoc Island.

For all other further guidance and assistance, please contact OYO’s partner support team via the Careline or on email at mm.vn@oyorooms.com.
