Booking Engine Settings effect display and information required from guests.

 

 

 Booking Screen
  • Don't ask for Dietary Information – if you serve meals and need to know preferences then tick this box.
  • Don't ask for Special Needs Information – if you want guests to indicate special needs tick this box.
  • Phone number Mandatory – if you require a phone number with every booking tick this box.
  • Address Mandatory - if you require an address with every booking tick this box.
  • Use Sources – Tick this box if you want to turn on the ability for guest to select where they heard about your property.
  • Source mandatory – Tick this box if you want to make it a requirement that the guest selects where they heard about your property.
 Confirmation Screen
Guest Must Agree to Terms – some people would suggest that the terms and conditions at the time of booking are a binding agreement, but in reality we all know this must be tested on a case by case basis. Still, requiring the guest to tick a box to agree to your terms may help you in case of disputes.
 Inquiry Screen
  • Show Room Type Calendars – if you tick this box, a menu appears below the calendar so that guests can see availability for specific Room Types. Useful for properties with many room types, or properties where each room type is a unique room such as a Vacation Rental or a B&B with theme rooms.
  • Number of Guests: Don't prompt for number of guests on enquiry page Every Room Type has a Maximum Capacity. If you prompt for 'the number of guests' on the enquiry page, then results will be limited to Room Types with capacity to match the number of guests. In fact, guests often book several rooms; if you limit the available options to rooms that match the group capacity then you may miss out on bookings. For example, 4 people may prefer to book 2 Double Rooms (max capacity 2) rather than a Family Room (max capacity 4).
  • Show Guest Types – This flag determines if the booking engine exposes Guest Types during the booking process.
  • Use Promo Codes:
