Booking Direct is fully customisable end to end, seamlessly integrating with the rest of your website. With a redirection-free UX, it maintains brand consistency beautifully, from search through to booking and beyond.
Mobile, tablet, or desktop computer. Whatever the size and resolution of the screen, the superior quality of Booking Direct’s UX is uncompromised, with an easily navigable, visually pleasing platform that instantly adapts to the viewer environment.
Reassure your customers that direct is best, and challenge the common assumption that OTAs return better rates than hotel brand websites. With Price Check installed, our innovative tool that compares live OTA rates with your direct rate in a customisable widget beside your booking engine, you’ll soon be reducing your reliance on the OTAs and saving the commission that comes with it. Your customers will be saving time, too, in avoiding the tedious task of shopping around for the best rates.
MULTIPLE LANGUAGE, MULTIPLE CURRENCY
Make it easy for non-English speakers to book with you. Booking Direct offers multiple language options – and shows rates in multiple currencies, giving international guests all the more reason to stay – and spend – with you.
SOCIAL MEDIA INTEGRATION
Using your social media platforms to learn more about your customers means they’ll enjoy better, more personalised service throughout the booking process. They can also opt to check out using a Facebook or Google Plus profile, with multiple payment card details saved. A quicker, more personal check out process – plus the option to post the reservation on Facebook.
CALENDAR VIEW AVAILABILITY
Display anything from a week’s worth to a year’s worth of live inventory with clear and intuitive calendar view format. Ideal for extended stay guests and serviced apartment providers, it makes trip planning in advance quick and easy, and reduces the risk of booking abandonment.
Solution which suits your needs
Make it easy for agents and corporates to put high value business your way. Unique logins display personalised welcome messages, and searches automatically return pre-negotiated corporate or agent rates. Booking Direct also includes invoicing functionality giving agents and corporates the option to purchase inventory on credit.
