How to Link the Booking Engine to Your Website

How to open the booking engine in RoomRaccoon

  1. Click on the Booking Engine Module on the left of the screen and navigate to the BE Setup Tab.

  1. Scroll down and click on the "Book" Button.

  1. The booking engine will then be opened.

  1. You can use the URL for your website

How to use the "book" button

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 the available hotel rooms during this period.

Your web designer can create a button, or you can use the one that RoomRaccoon provides. To use the latter:

  1. Choose the colour.

  1. Click on the copy widget.

  1. The code of the widget is now copied and you (or your web designer) can paste it on your website.

  1. 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 hotel's website (not in the booking engine). 

When someone enters the desired data (on the hotel website) and clicks on the "check availability" button, the available hotel rooms in the new window are immediately shown based on 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 improve the conversion rate.
