New Booking & Room Availability System Now Available

Posted by mxs on 28th September 20152 Comments

Members can now switch on an alternative room allocation & booking system from within the My-BNB admin panel.
Top Menu >> Website Options >> Room Allocation
This system has a multitude of benefits

  • Shows you actual availability on your own website or webpage
  • Allows 3rd party bookings (Booking.com, telephone….) to be added with a click of the mouse updating your availability instantly
  • Allow for reduced occupation of rooms i.e.. single occupation
  • Show which rooms are sold and which are available
  • Add Special Offers – Last minute discounts can be displayed automatically
  • Minimum Stay & Maximum Stay on a room by room basis
  • Every bed-night can be set up independently, for a day, period or year
  • Guests can choose to display room rates in US Dollars, GB Pounds or Euros

It’s easy to set up but there is no tutorial just yet but those B&Bs that have helped us in the final stages have had little trouble setting it up.

B&B Owners Ireland

B&B Owners Association Ireland
Annual Fees: Full members are now able to pay annual fees directly from the “My B&B” admin panel.

  • Choose to pay online by debit/credit card, by direct debit or by bank transfer.
  • Spreading the cost over two payments can only be done with direct debit.
  • To continue to receive commission free booking this process need to be completed by the end of October otherwise membership will revert to “Associate Membership with a website” and bookings charged at 11%.

This does not affect Associate Members in Ireland and they can disregard this notice.
This is all part of of the streamlining necessary to maintain the low cost of membership and commission free bookings.
