Channel manager selection - booking.com

2. Select the 'Connectivity provider' or 'Channel manager' tab.

3. Search for mobile-calendar and select mobile-calendar as your provider.

4. Wait for our team to link your booking.com account to your mobile-calendar account and you will be notified by email.

Combining rooms - booking.com

You can combine rooms depending on how you rent them on booking.com.

Method 1 (recommended)

One room from mobile-calendar to one room from booking.com. Example:
Room 1 from mobile-calendar combined with Room 1 from booking.com.
Room 2 from mobile-calendar combined with Room 2 from booking.com.
Room 3 from mobile-calendar linked to Room 3 from booking.com etc.

Synchronisations

This method, called one-to-one connection, is recommended for connecting the mobile-calendar application with booking.com. Thanks to this connection, availability and prices are sent individually for each room.

Method 2

Several rooms from mobile-calendar to a group of rooms from booking.com. Example:
Room 1 with mobile-calendar combined with Room 1 from booking.com,
Room 2 with mobile-calendar combined with Room 2 from booking.com,
Room 3 with mobile-calendar combined with Room 3 from booking.com etc.

Synchronisations

With this connection we can combine room groups from booking.com with several mobile-calendar rooms. By combining rooms in this way, you allow customers to make bookings on dates that are available in the entire room group. This allows a guest to book a date that is made up of several available rooms.

Example: in a group of rooms we have 3 rooms connected( Room 1, Room 2, Room 3).
Room 1 - free term from 01-07 to 03-07.
Room 2 - free term from 03-07 to 05-07.
Room 3 -free term from 05-07 to 07-07.

A client who wants to book a stay from 01-07 to 07-07 has the possibility to book a stay in three rooms:
First part of stay 01-07 to 03-07 Room 1.
Second part of stay 03-07 do 05-07 Room 2.
Third part of stay 05-07 do 07-07 Room 3.

If a customer makes such a booking, the mobile-calendar system will detect a booking collision, of which you will be informed via a message.

What is the solution?

The proposed solution is to connect the booking.com rooms with the mobile-calendar using method 1, i.e. a one-to-one method.

An alternative solution is to link only part of the booking.com rooms to the mobile-calendar.com app. This way, when you receive a booking from the booking.com system, you will be able to manually transfer the booking to an unconnected room (where the date is free), while releasing the availability of the connected room anew.

Editing rooms

To change, add or disconnect rooms - turn off synchronisation.

Pricing and currency

Remember!
The currency in mobile-calendar must be the same as the currency of your booking.com property!
If your rooms are combined into a group on booking.com, the price of all rooms in the same group must be the same.

1. Go to Functions -> Pricing.

2. Choose booking.com pricing

Synchronisations

Expand the plan you wish to edit. Pricing plans are downloaded from booking.com, if you wish to add a new pricing plan you need to do so within the booking.com extranet.

Synchronisations

You can fill in the pricelist in bulk (for many rooms at the same time). Using the 'Edit' button, you can enter the bulk settings for a given pricelist option. Select the date range for which you want to set a given parameter, e.g. price, minimum stay, possible arrivals, etc., enter the value, select for which rooms to apply the changes and save.

Synchronisations

Price list values are sent to booking.com in real time.

Import of reservations

The reservation import should only be used when you first set up your mobile-calendar connection with booking.com.

Please note: If you have already manually transcribed bookings from booking.com, please skip this step! Otherwise, this may result in a booking overlap (collision).

1. Go to the Synchronization -> Booking.com.
2. Go to step 5 of the configuration.
3. Press the green button Reservation import.
4. Confirm that you want to import bookings from booking.com.

Synchronisation on/off

Before activating the synchronisation please make sure that the rooms are connected correctly, that the currency in mobile-calendar is the same as in booking.com and that the price list is configured correctly. If you require any further information or assistance with the configuration please contact us.

Follow the steps:
1. Go to the Synchronisation -> Booking.com.
2. Proceed to step 6 of the configuration.
3. Slide the Disable/enable synchronisation slider.

Enabling synchronisation will automatically send availability and price list to booking.com.

All availability and price changes made in the mobile-calendar are sent to booking.com in real time.
