First impressions matter and your valet tickets play a role in the first impression your clients have, making them incredibly important. So, how can you upgrade your valet service with custom valet tickets? There’s more than one type of valet ticket, and we’re here to help you decide what’s best for your business.
Valet tickets: the basics
We can divide valet ticket design into two main areas: form and function. The function of the ticket consists of how information is stored, and messages are sent. This covers the practical aspect of valet tickets and ensures you have a working system without any hitches. The form covers how you and your clients interact with your valet system, and the physical design the tickets have.
There are three main kinds of valet tickets that we can look at. Barcode tickets, texting tickets, and QR tickets are the industry-leading options, and all for good reason. A good valet ticket can simplify your guest and employee experience, giving your clients a great first and last impression.
- Barcode Tickets: For barcode tickets, each ticket contains the needed information to retrieve the client’s car. They can approach the valet stand, an employee scans the ticket, and the car can be sent for. This method is simple and easy for clients, and it is easy for your company’s valet system to keep track of customers and cars.
- Texting Tickets: Texting tickets have the advantage of clients being able to call for their car in advance. There is a phone number and a unique number printed onto the ticket, and the client texts this unique number to the phone number. They then receive a response text letting them know how long they need to wait for their vehicle to be ready. This significantly eases the customer experience, and your clients will spend less time waiting.
- QR Tickets: QR tickets take the technology of texting tickets and simplify the process even further. Using their phone camera, guests scan the QR code on their ticket and a pre-typed message appears to notify the valet team. This means guests don’t have to enter a phone number, decreasing the risk of errors and smoothing the vehicle collection process.
Valet tickets, like custom parking tags, can do more than just provide a service. This is your chance for your business to stand out. Everything from color selection to paper type and advertising plays a role in how clients view your business. Multiple-part tickets allow for a smooth valet experience, with tear-away parts for the client, the car, and your valet team.
