Link Date Picker to the Booking Engine

The most common process that our customers follow for reservations is via the “book now” button on their website that redirects guests to the booking engine.

This opens the booking engine tab where guests can enter desired dates and see available rooms. This is however not the only configuration we offer as you can use the check availability widget.

Availability Widget

With this “check availability” widget, the website user selects their preferred dates on the web platform. With this feature, the user will be redirected to the booking engine where available reservation options will be displayed and they will be able to book.

Why would you choose the "availability" widget?

It is certainly worth it to take a look at our "check availability" widget and test it. Because for some hotel websites this can lead to an improvement in the conversion rate. In the screenshot below it becomes clear that you can choose from two options. The first option is the usual booking button, the code must be copied and pasted in the current website. The code contains various styling elements that can be adjusted as desired.

The second option is the "check availability" widget. You must also copy and paste this code within the website. The beauty is that you can provide this dynamic code with your own custom data. In this case, this can be the check-in and check-out date selected on the current website.
