Good to know about Booking Engines

Hence, most Channel Managers develop their own Booking Engine. Nowadays it's becoming more and more important to match a visually attractive and user-friendly hotel booking system to your own website. Guests are becoming more aware of how much commission a hotel is charged by external booking channels. This is your opportunity!

Pre-payments or credit card details?

With RoomRaccoon you can choose yourself what kind of guarantee you ask before a guest can book. Would you always like to receive credit card details or do you want your guests to pay in advance? No problem at all.

We are connected to Stripe, a payment provider who guarantees the privacy of your guest's credit card data in England. Also, by using Stripe in RoomRaccoon, you'll save thousands of Euro's on transaction costs over credit card charges and it's a way to collect pre-payments.

In South Africa, we're connected to PayGate, a secure online transaction provider that makes it easy to charge money.

Package Deals & Add-ons?

Package deals are a great way to stimulate direct bookings. With RoomRaccoon’s hotel reservation software, that's a no brainer. While RoomRaccoon only shows the name and total price of the package deal, you can arrange how you want to shape that package deal. It's often the case that in package deals the different pieces to shape the package deal have different VAT rates. Think for example of a one night stay (6%), with a three-course dinner (6%) and a wine-tasting event (21%). Your head starting to spin? No worries. RoomRaccoon makes sure everything will be calculated perfectly!

Add-ons, such as a bottle of wine or late-check-out, not only generate extra revenue. They can also be used to offer you additional information about your guest (e.g. gluten allergy). Add-ons can easily be added to a reservation when RoomRaccoon's hotel reservation software is used. So, what are you waiting for?
