Real-time Internet Booking Engine Reservation Functionality

You may also sell rooms through one or more automated Internet Booking Engines (IBEs) - such as large hotel room booking websites - by electing any IBE of your choice to accept real-time, internet bookings directly into your Booxotel system.

Internet Booking Engine Contracts

Internet Booking Engine Contract Activation

After you have set up one or more IBE contracts, you can then instruct your Booxotel system to activate your elected IBEs. Once activated, each authorized IBE will be able to display to their users and enable their users to book - IN REAL TIME - all accommodations specified by your IBE contract. Each of your IBE's will also be able to display to their users an image gallery of your hotel as well as descriptive image captions.

Hotel-wide room inventories will, of course, affect the number of rooms any IBE can display and offer for booking. For example, if there are only 4 standard rooms in your hotel's inventory on any given date, then your authorized IBE's will only display - in real time - 4 standard rooms.

Hotel owners may rest assured that IBE's can only display and book the specific number and types of rooms as provided for in their contract; all other hotel information within your Booxotel system will remain securely hidden from view.
