It’s now easier than ever for customers to book a vacation, with 80% now booking online.
Owners of independent holiday cottages or villas often don’t take advantage of advanced online booking software which can prevent any double-bookings and help them to relay information to customers, though.
This means that they risk losing customers to their bigger competitors.
Cronofy connects the schedules of holiday villas or cottages to online booking software.
Bookings update in real-time so that everyone always has the latest information.
The Cronofy Calendar API works with all major calendar services, meaning that it doesn’t matter what calendar service your clients or their customers use – everything can be synced to your software in real-time.
"Cronofy keeps our clients in touch with their bookings as they can now push it straight to their calendars. If they are not at their computer, they can easily access booking summaries via their phone calendar. Cronofy also uses OAuth2.0 so security issues are a thing of the past."
With everything that needs to be organized and remembered when organizing a vacation, it’s easy to lose important information. Crucial details from reference numbers to key locations can easily get lost in a sea of emails or at the bottom of a bag.
When your holiday letting software uses Cronofy, calendar events can be enriched with details such as key locations, holiday dates, and check-in times, meaning that vacationers have everything they need in one place.
Cronofy’s geolocation feature also means that there’s no more stress for vacationers who don’t know where they’re going – everything is easily accessible from the device they use the most: their mobile.
Many mobile calendars are available offline, so it doesn’t matter if customers stay in the big city or the quiet countryside – they’ll always have everything they need.
