What is an add-on?

When your guests are staying with you, they are often looking for little extras which can make their stay in your hotel, apartment or B&B a little bit more special than just a place to sleep. For example the possibility to rent bikes, take their pets with them or book a nice 4 course dinner. All these add-ons as they are called, can be made bookable in your PMS (Property Management System). You can find the option ‘add-ons’ under ‘Room types’.

How do you use the add-on function?

When you click on the property setup icon in the navigation menu you will see the option ‘Categories. Here you can add all your add-ons and appoint them to the room category of your choice. This way, you can pick and choose which add-ons are available for which room category. For example you can make late check-out possible for your suite but not for your standard room. 

How to make your add-ons available on your booking engine

Click on the Add-ons tab at the top of your property setup page.
Select the add-on you would like to make visible on your booking engine.


To the right of your screen you have various options including make visible on the booking engine you can also choose whether to charge per person or per night.



What are the benefits of add-ons?

Next to that, adding add-ons to your roomtypes makes sure these add-ons are immediately bookable in your Booking Engine. This way, your guests can book these add-ons straight away when they book a room in your hotel, apartment or B&B.

When a booking is made and add-ons are chosen during the guests’ stay with you, the add-ons will be visible on the invoice. Very convenient for yourself, your guests and your accountant. This way you can immediately see which add-ons are booked often and which are a little less popular. 

How do you delete an add-on in your Booking Engine?

For this, you go to the key-icon in the navigation menu (as described above) and click on add-ons. Here you will find all your add-ons. Simply click on this and scroll down. Now you can uncheck 'visible in Booking Engine'.  Save and your unchecked add-ons will no longer be visible.
