The new booking engine provides capabilities like upselling, advanced search and quick setup, but may not serve as a full replacement for custom-created websites due to its inherently limited customization options. In addition, you may want to allow guests to book your listings from your own website without leaving it or seamlessly re-direct them to your Booking Engine itself. This is where our Booking Engine Widgets can be useful.
Here are the Widgets that are currently available:
Booking Engine Embeddable Search Bar - The embeddable search bar allows your guests to search the booking engine directly from your own website. This is done by implementing a short code in your website that adds a search bar with some basic styling and customization options.
Calendar Widget - The embeddable calendar widget is a code that can be entered into a website to display a calendar like the one that exists in the booking engine’s listing pages. It has styling and customization options. When guests click the action button they are led to a specific listing’s checkout or inquiry pages, according to your Hostaway-specific settings.
