Levart Booking System Advantages
The booking process a property offers on their website will influence the number of direct bookings the website receives. There are many mistakes being made which deter guests making direct bookings through the property’s booking system. Mistakes include;
1. No booking panel
There is no booking panel on the property's website to initiate a booking, only a button. This adds an extra step for the guest.
2. Generic URL
The button redirects a prospective guest off the hotel website to a different website URL. The booking is made on a generic domain, where the guest is no longer familiar with the company indicated in the URL resulting in the possibility of a lost direct booking.
3. Generic booking page design
The booking page is a generic design with very few similarities to the property’s website - different colours and images.
4. The booking process leaves the property's website
The booking process leaves the property’s website which does not allow the guest to easily navigate back to the website if they require additional information. This enforces the perception of being taken to a third-party site.
One of the greatest advantages of Levart’s booking engine is the seamless experience a prospective guest has during the booking process. This includes,
1. Intelligent booking panel
An Intelligent booking engine is placed every page of the property’s website. This is provided as code for your website provider to implement.
2. Consistent URL
The future guest remains on a consistent domain which includes the property name throughout the booking process.
3. Consistent look & feel
The website design is applied to each page throughout the booking process to maintain consistency. This includes the menu of website.
4. Consistent window
The booking process remains on the same window as your website.
5. Consistent navigation
Easy navigation through the exact menu back to website pages.
Why is a seamless experience so important?
Property guests trusts the property not a third-party booking provider. Levart ensures the guests feel as though they are booking directly with the property throughout the entire booking process. This will result in an increase in direct bookings for the property.
