Online booking can be described as a modern way of making reservations for flights, hotels, and so on. It allows tourists and activity operators to make their bookings and request for reservations online. Thus, it encourages better utilization of their phones rather than face to face bookings. Online booking allows customers to conveniently order for services that involve reservations on a computer or mobile phone through the internet before any prior visit. Online bookings have become very rampant now that travelers can now head straight to their destination, ready and fully prepared for their tour with just a few clicks on their mobile phone. It also assists tourists/travelers in making the reservation of their choice of room. Accordingly, it is crucial for every hotel and property owner to take their online booking feature seriously. Because Nobeds understands the essentiality of online booking, we included the ‘availability calendar’ in the features of our software.
With the availability calendar, you can easily see the whole view of your properties. You can set quantity or rates with a simple click – this will automatically change prices on all your channels (except iCAL channels – they do not have price support). You can bulk edit your availability here too – you can set weekend price for some of the rooms for the whole year.
Usually, the availability calendar is mostly used by hotels or property owners. It serves as a control for the hotel management to enable the control and change of the available rooms in the hotel, with the application of the rate/price attached to it with just a single click. An availability checker calendar is a visual forecast of the booked status of a hotel room for a specific time and date of the year. The availability calendar indicates room bookings available in the hotel and their prices for each time and date of the month.
The availability calendar is also functional for hotels or property owners to automatically change and manage the availability of rooms in the hotel on all channels expeditiously. It makes it easy for prospective hotel visitors to assess the availability of rooms in the hotel and also pay an advance deposit fee to ensure the reservation until visiting. After the reservation has been made, the booking details are sent to the hotel database and the availability for the room is immediately updated to the hotel management.
