Using an 'Calendar of Availability' as the default 'introductory' page, this Booking Engine template offers a visual calendar option of property availability (ie, showing which dates have rooms and which do not) and enables Guests to choose arrival and departure dates.


NOTE:  Some customers to choose to avoid this 'Front Page' entirely, and use the Quick Reservation Feature on their website to present a clear 'call to action' accepting 'Arrival Date" and 'Departure Date' so that, when submitted, the user gets availability results from the Booking Engine for those dates. This approach has been shown to generate more bookings - look at major hotel websites and this is how they implement the Booking Engine. We describe how you can do this in this Knowledge Base Article.
