Updated August 2021 with new quote lengths!
In response to client requests, we have introduced and formalised the option to send quotes to potential guests for your self-catering properties.
New Update: August 2021
Now you can choose the length of the quote!
We received feedback that property managers wanted more control of the expiry time of the quote.
So now you can adjust the length to suit your business. Choose short quotes from one hour to quotes which stay valid until one minute before the booking arrival date.
Send quotes for self-catering properties
Quotes offer the option to attract new guests!
If your guest isn't ready to book, or wants to know what properties would suit them, use quotes!
You can now provisionally hold a property for 72 hours, and send this quote directly to your guest.
Why send a quote
No matter what type of property you have - holiday cottages, flats, castles or villas, the effect of COVID19 on the industry has been hard.
Many property managers are reviewing their strategies and creating new strategies to attract domestic guests.
Sending quotes gives you the opportunity to attract more sales by being flexible, and offering a really personal service from a distance.
You can add extra discounts and extras on your property to push that sale through!
How to create your self-catering quotes
It's really easy to automatically send out a quotation:
- Log into Bookster
- Add a manual booking
- Select the state - Confirmed or Quote
- Complete the booking details and rate that suits you
- Choose how long the quote offer is available
- Send / Do not send the quote directly via email.
What your guest receives
The Guest Area shows the property information they need to make a booking.
The guest has the time you have allocated to make a payment using your payment gateway - this will confirm the booking in your online bookings calendar.
How to view your quotes
All quotes can be viewed in the Bookings area, using the Quotes filter.
