Love is in the air this week! Are you ready to cope with the influx of group bookings that may follow this most romantic of days? and do you know how you will give the happy couple’s guests access to book, but block off availability to everyone else?
Fear not! Inn Style has it covered. A fail safe way of reserving a block of rooms for a wedding party (or birthday or any other group booking) and giving secret access to the guests, allowing them to book using a special code.
How does secret availability work?
When a couple make a block booking, they probably don’t want to (or can’t) pay for all the rooms up front. They want their guests to book and pay for their rooms themselves but they want to reserve enough accommodation for the whole wedding party to be able to stay in one place.
Block off your rooms for wedding guests.
Inn Style lets you block off a number of rooms, which can only be ‘opened up’ by entering a secret code during the booking process. You give the couple the unique code to circulate to their guests. Once the reserved rooms are accessed using the code, the guest books and pays for their room as usual.
To anyone else searching availability on your website, they would simply not see availability returned for the date(s) and room(s) in question.
And, to make sure that you don’t reserve the rooms indefinitely, you can give your happy couple, and their guests, a date by which they must make their booking, before the remaining rooms are released back into general availability.
A simple way to make wedding planning easier for all concerned!
