FAQs About Hotel Booking Engines

1What is a hotel booking engine?
A hotel booking engine is software on a hotel’s website that captures online bookings. An online booking page typically consists of a date picker that allows potential guests to select their preferred dates and then shows the hotel’s rates and availability for the selection. It also displays room photos and descriptions along with in-room amenities. With this tool, guests can easily make payments online, and the system will immediately confirm their booking by sending a confirmation email. This ensures that the booking process is quick and hassle-free for guests and property managers. Additionally, the booking engine will communicate with your property management system or reservation software to update availability in real-time. This means you can easily avoid double bookings and keep track of your inventory.
2Why do I need a booking engine?
Accommodations like independent hotels, hostels,lodges,B&Bs, and serviced apartments without bookable websites are leaving money on the table. Having a website without a booking engine is like owning a restaurant with a beautifully designed menu but no tables for customers to sit and order their food. You've showcased your offerings and made potential diners hungry for what you serve, but without the ability to take their orders and reservations, they'll end up leaving and going elsewhere to satisfy their appetite. Modern travelers expect the instant gratification of online self-service. They desire the ability to swiftly check rates and availability without the hassle of filling out online query forms and waiting for responses. This desire for quick access to information is a key reason behind the popularity of Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) among travelers. Finally, acquiring new customers is one of the most expensive aspects of running a hotel. It makes sense to leverage every sales channel, including your website, by equipping it with a powerful booking engine that gives you a competitive edge.
