New Pricing, renewals and rewarding loyalty.

In the beginning of next month we will be increasing the Basic plan price from 7 to 9 Euros per month, and from 70 to 90 Euros per year.  The new pricing was the desired pricing for this level of service in the first place, but we have kept it lower for one year for two reasons: We wanted to complete the Extras functionality. We did this happily last week. To give our customers a smooth introduction to the paying plans. We introduced the various paying plans last September, so after a year, we are confident that it was a right […]

Search by number of guests

Last week we published a much requested feature for Web Bookings, our booking engine: search by number of guests. This is something pretty common but which we had not included in the first place, thinking that for small lodges, it is not bad for people to see all the alternative rooms offered when they make a search for availability. With the advent of the rate plans though, and the “Per person” pricing rule, searching by number of guests could have an impact on the price of a specific room. So, now, when people search without specifying the number of guests, […]

Additional short notifications for the booking engine

In the past two weeks we have rolled out two new short  email notifications for the booking engine (Web Bookings). “Reservation in progress”: The first is sent by email to the owners when a client is starting the process to book a room, just before payment.   At this point, a tentative reservation is already created under his name and it is visible in the calendar. The email body will look like this: First Name: <first name> Last Name: <last name> Email: Phone: <phone> Date from: dd/mm/yyyy Date to: dd/mm/yyyy Agreed price: 999 State: 1 (Tentative reservation) “Reservation in progress was […]

Reservation Extras

Adding reservation extras was something very close to the top of the list of requested features. Today, I am happy to announce that this is now a reality. We have added the Extras functionality to our apps and we are gradually rolling it out starting with the Android app. Version 1.4.002, which is already available on the Play store, has this piece of extra (pun intended) functionality. The iOS app will also be available in few days (we are awaiting Apple’s approval). For the web app, it will take a bit longer: we are overhauling the calendar and reservation parts […]
