FAQ Bookings

Differences calendar Live vs Dashboard

The Live calendar shows the reserved dates in a different way than the calendar in the dashboard. This is the result of the different purposes;
The Live calendar shows the departure day as free (bookable) to invite people to book this day.
The Dashboard calendar shows the same departure day as booked, as the guest still occupies part of this day.
If you have a guest leaving at the 10th and a new guest is arriving at the 10th you'll see two bookings/guests at this day in the Dashboard calendar.
This is perfectly normal, you can see it as a change-over day.

Receiving bookings per email

All message are send by '[email protected]'.
This is a professional configured messaging system, with valid certifcates, DKIM en SPF records.
Nevertheless, add this email address to your Whitelist to prevent it will be classified as spam.

Double bookings

If a guest selects payment method X and this method fails, the guest can go back and select another payment method (to save the booking). If 'Direct Reservations' is active, this behaviour will result in a double booking for the same guest. The differences are: a new bookingID and a changed payment method field.
Please delete the failed booking manually.

Accommodations

Here you can configure up to 10 accommodations.

When you are done, scroll to 'Integrate into your site', make a selection and you will be given the code that can be pasted into your website.

Synchronisation

[ Export and import of reservations. ]

Automatic synchronization interval

Booka.place collects your new reservations every 30 minutes, day and night. And when someone books at your site it checks again, now in real-time, if the accommodation is still available.

Please read the requirements below.

Number of synchronisation sources per accommodation

You can have up to 5 different OTA's per accommodation. Our systems will collect all these sources every 30 minutes, day and night.

Once the url is accepted, it will be requested every 30 minutes by the Booka.place servers

Requirements for external iCal sources

The requirements are:

  1. a valid url,
  2. a valid iCal format,
  3. future reservations only (not older than 3 months),
  4. accessible 24/7 and
  5. an access time of less than 500 ms.

N.B. If a resource does not meet the requirements, it cannot be shown, so no reservations from this source will be visible. Use the iCal Import update button in the dashboard to test your resources, or use the iCal Validator to see the content of any iCal file.

Once the url is accepted, it will be requested every 30 minutes by the Booka.place servers

FAQ

FAQ Synchronisation

Dashboard: new iCal source is not accepted

If you specify a new source in the dashboard it has to be validated before you can continue. This warning is not an error in our software, but a warning that the file to be imported does not match our requirements.

Source invalid ical

If you have doubts about this check, you can use the following tools to see for yourself what is wrong with the resource.

TIP: Use the iCal Validator to see the actual content of the iCal file.

Source too old

A source with old reservations will not be accepted (older than 3 months) because:

  • it serves no purpose (nobody reserves a date in the past).
  • the generally accepted practice is to use only future reservations for synchronisation. If you don't have the possibility to delete old reservations yourself, it is best to ask the resource provider to do this for you.
  • It puts unnecessary burden on all systems involved.
Source too slow

If the resource is rejected because it does not respond quickly enough (TTFB) then you can have this tested at domsignal.com/ttfb-test.

Note: this only tests the server's response time, required is a full download within 500 ms. All well-known OTAs such as airBnB and Booking meet this requirement without any problems.

These servers operate from multiple geographical locations and use data centres from AWS and Cloudflare network infrastructure.

Once the url is accepted, it will be requested every 30 minutes by the Booka.place servers.

Components

Integration in your site

The availability calendar, search bar, booking system and accommodation lists can be integrated into any website by copying and pasting a code into the editor of your website.

Once the the component is added, any changes in its settings afterwards are updated automatically.

Language: the booking module will follow the language that is set by the page (HTML lang=), or if this fails, the language that is set by the browser of the guest. You can overrule this by selecting a hard coded language during copying the code.

If you use Squarespace, Weebly, Wix, Jimdo, Wordpress Classic, Wordpress Gutenberg or Wordpress Elementor you'll see tailor-made instructions about what to do after copying.

If you use another editor, select 'Generic'. Only if this doesn't work, select 'Iframe'.

You can also use the availability calendar in a Facebook post or reaction

Block all rooms if 'the whole house' is reserved and vice versa

If you have separate bookable rooms but also offer the booking of "the whole house", you can use the steps below. The result will be:

  • someone books a room -> the whole house can not be booked in this period.
  • someone books the whole house -> all rooms are blocked in this period. This setup requires the creation of a accommodation 'the whole house' and creating synchronization links between all rooms.
    This only works up to 5 rooms
  1. Go to the first room you want to link
  2. Under 'export/import', turn the option 'Export iCal ...' ON and copy the default URL (https://data.booka...) to a text editor, so you can use it later on.
  3. Do the same for the other rooms.
  4. Create an umbrella accommodation ('the whole house'), enter at least a standard price per night and under 'export/import', turn the option 'Export iCal ...' ON.
  5. Click UPDATE so that the iCal files are created.
  6. Copy and paste the URL's you saved in step 2 into the 'import iCal files'.
  7. Click the red button to check the files.
  8. Check the export checkbox and copy the default export iCal URL
  9. For each room: check the Import iCal checkbox and paste the copied 'whole house' export URL into a field. Click the red button.

As a result, for all rooms and the 'whole house', the export and import check boxes will be ON and all rooms will have 1 import url (from the whole house) and the whole house will have multiple import urls (1 for each room).

N.B. The status of the 'whole house' in the above setup is for internal use on your website only. To export the status to third parties you'll have to apply the same scheme at external calenders.

What is the difference between a PMS, a booking engine and a channel manager?

A PMS is an integrated hard and software management system that automates the full multi-user process of making reservations, checking guests in and out, delegating housekeeping tasks, handling of Point of Sales terminals, invoicing, price management, etc.

It generates, collects and distributes essential data about reservations, like prices, user name, email address and telephone number. It prevents double booking by automatically blocking reserved dates.

Booka.place is a booking engine with all the essentials of a channel manager built in.

What is the difference a booking engine and a form on my site?

A booking engine handles bookings, it shows available accommodations and/or dates, it calculates the right price for the selected date range and choosen options, it registrates the required data, updates your calendar and handles the confirmations etc. It can also handle the direct (credit card) payment of the booking.

Nowadays most visitors prefer direct booking above starting a mail conversation about all the required details with the risk of loosing the desired accommodation in the meantime. The owner of the website can decide if a booking is legally binding or has to be confirmed first.

Is it multilingual?

Yes, you can use the option 'auto' to have the language automatically selected, or force the language to: en/nl/it/fr/de/pt/es/pl by adding a parameter. See the advanced options for an overview.

Can I change the titles?

Yes, you can use the title of the buttons by adding a parameter. See the advanced options for an overview.

Can I change the confirmation messages?

Yes, you can change the content of all messages yourself, even in multiple languages.

Can I use the app to manage my bookings?
