Why have online booking?

Enabling online booking on your website with, our Booking Manager, makes it easier for your guests to book at a time that is convenient to them. Make the process as straightforward as possible by removing any reason not to book and watch your calendars fill up.

The results of a recent survey** of guests who booked accommodation online highlight the importance of online booking. Only two thirds of those surveyed said that they would have made an enquiry by email or telephone if the website didn’t have the facility to book online – meaning 1 out of 3 of those bookings may not have been made at all. Furthermore, only half of those surveyed would have left a message if put through to an answering machine, and half of those would continue to search online for alternative accommodation in the meantime.

Therefore, if during the course of the year you received 30 online bookings (at an average of £500 per booking) that is a turnover of £15,000.
Based on the survey results, without online booking that figure would be closer to £10,000 (and only if you were available to answer every phone call, day and night).

If you have been holding off adding online booking to your website because you didn’t think you needed it, maybe now is the time to make that move.

Three options for online booking

What our online booking and admin service will do for you

What our booking and admin service doesn’t do -

(unlike many other companies that provide this facility and service)

Having us process your online payments and administer your bookings is a cost effective way of providing online booking. You don’t need a merchant services bank account or payment terminal and you don’t need a web developer as adding the book now button is simple, we will even do this for you.

We charge a one off set up fee, yearly licence fee per property and low rate commission or fixed cost per booking to manage your online bookings. This is more cost effective than other payment options that don’t even provide any booking admin support.

You control pricing and availability; all you have to do is log in and simply make changes on our flexible booking engine.
