There are several options for how you can take bookings. The costs of these vary , some are free, some charge a monthly fee and some take a percentage of each booking. The booking form included as standard on our sites is free but does not allow online bookings. If you need online booking these will incur an extra cost but can be supplied.
Booking Calendar with booking request form
The standard booking option on your website is an availability calendar with displays the price of the property, as well as when it is available. There is also a booking request form which the customer fills in and is sent to you in an email. You have full control of all bookings, when the request is made from the customer it is upto you to confirm this booking and mark it in the calendar. These can be laid out in a number of ways. e.g.
Horizontal booking Layout

How it works
With this booking system each property has its own calendar. Each day on that calendar can have its availability set through a dropdown that is next to the date, and also have a comment that is displayed as a tooltip on the calendar. The update calendar is shown below. If you order this you will be given full details on how to maintain it - it is very easy. Or if you do not feel up to this task you can pay us a little extra each month to do this for you
To make a booking all you need to do is to change the availability dropdown to another state as shown below:
The calendar will now display the dates of 18th to 26th as Booked to Mr Smith. You do not have to include the name of the person who has booked the period if you want to keep this private. This comment field can be hold any information. It is where we put the prices for the property when is ha not been booked. The image below shows the calendar after the booking has been made. 18th to 26th are marked as booked to "Smith"
