We are constantly looking to improve our website customer's websites and associated services.

Below are a few services that we have had requests from our customers to provide - depending on the volume of our customers who would be interested in these, will determine which services will be prioritised.

Please take a look at the below services, and we'd really appreciate if you could spend one minute filling in the form found at the bottom of the page to let us know if you are interested in any of these services.

Service 1 - Booking System

BOOKING / PROPERTY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Accept direct online reservations and don't pay any commission & synchronize all bookings across OTAs (Online Travel Agencies) like Booking.com via iCal. Our new booking system is perfect for running any hospitality business establishment regardless of the size, function or cost: eg hotels, self catering accommodation, agencies, hostels etc.  Can be used as a complete booking system, or simply to show availability (i.e. manually confirm bookings)

The highly flexible system will allow you to apply different seasonal pricing, set room rates, services (eg add cleaning) add photo galleries, manage online bookings online. You can also set min / max days to stay and available check-in and check-out dates. 

The accommodation rate can also be changed automatically depending on a number of guests. 

The system can require deposits to secure the booking, either as a set amount, or a percentage.

Confirm submitted booking requests manually, automatically or instantly upon payment. Charge a full amount of money or deposit. Send email notifications either automatically or manually. Accept payments through Bank Transfer, PayPal or if wishing to accept credit card payments, an additional annual fee for adding payments via Stripe or similar would be required.

Service 2 - Social Media / Online Promotion

TAKING THE PAIN OUT OF SOCIAL MEDIA

Our website owners are very aware that they should be using social media - apart from us telling you this, tourism boards have also been telling website owners that they need to be using social media too! Part of any online marketing nowadays would not be effective without using Facebook, Twitter and a few other popular social platforms that are now proving to be important, such as Instagram.

However, despite knowing that social media is now so important, a huge percentage of our website owners do not actively utilise social media at all, which means there is a big hole in their online presence that needs filling!

As this is such an important part of marketing, we have been developing a solution that will work for all our website owners who wish to promote their accommodation online.

Our Solution:

Using our own social media that is dedicated to promoting accommodation via our Discover Accommodation website; our team can send out tweets and Facebook posts about your accommodation (2 each week), containing links within the post to your own website.

No work for you to do at all! We will create content based on your own website text and details, or taking a new review from online sources such as Tripadvisor etc, or if you want us to promote something such as late availability or a special offer, you simply need to let us know by completing a small online form to let us know.  Each time we create a tweet, it will be sent out mulitple times (re-worded) over the following 12 months; which means that by the time we have sent out 12 months of promotion, your accommodation (& link back to your own website) will have been mentioned 1248 times on social platforms (2 posts x 52 weeks = 104, then each post is re-made with 12 variations per post). 

If you are currently using Twitter or Facebook, have a quick count to see how many posts you have added in the last month, and then multiply this number by 12 to get a comparison number.  If the end result is far lower than 1248, you may wish to consider using this service!
