Booking systems for Accommodation Websites
Popular booking systems and software for B&Bs (Bed & Breakfasts), Self Catering, Campsites + Caravan Parks, Hotels + Glamping
Having made over 400 websites for accommodation owners, we have come across the many booking systems that our owners have chosen to use for their business, which allows us to have a good understanding of what systems are available, and the pros and cons for each service.
One of our website features is that we integrate any 3rd party booking system, allowing owners to choose the booking system that suits them best, and then we add it to their website as part of the build process.
Alternatively, owners who don't wish to have direct bookings can use our free availability calendar and enquiry form, so that online visitors can see easily and quickly which dates are available and then send the owner a quick enquiry.
Choosing the right booking system will vary for each accommodation owner, and cost, functionality and appearance are all factors to consider when trying to decide which ones will suit your requirements best.
Pricing really varies hugely, and you very much get what you pay for. Freetobook is popular, mainly because as the name suggests, it's pretty much free; you simply pay for extras such as the ability for card payments and channel management, however for all round price and functionality, Bookalet & Innstyle are ideal choices.
You also need to consider if you want your booking system to sync with other calendars eg Airbnb - if so, ensure that the booking system provides this feature.
We would be happy to discuss your requirements and then let you know which booking companies are a good match for you.
