How to open the booking engine in RoomRaccoon
Click on the gear icon and open the Booking Engine Tab.
Scroll down and click on the "Book" Button
The booking engine will then be opened
You can use the URL for your website
When you implement this button on your website and a guest clicks on it, the booking engine will be opened in a new window. In this new window, the guest can enter the desired dates and then view the offer of hotel rooms that are available during this period.
Your web designer can either create a button or you can use the one that RoomRaccoon provides. To use the latter:
Choose the colour.
Click on the copy widget.
The code of the widget is now copied and you (or your web designer) can paste it on your website.
If you want to see the code, click on "show widget code".
How to use a date picker on your own website
It is also possible to use our "check availability" widget. With this, a website visitor selects the desired data on the website of the hotel (not in the booking engine).
When someone enters the desired data (on the website of the hotel) and clicks on the "check availability" button, the available hotel rooms in the new window are immediately shown on the basis of these desired dates.
Good to know
For some hotel websites , the check availability widget would be a great feature to test out because it can lead to an improvement in the conversion rate.
