unveils new online booking system for holiday parks
Set to make things simple for both park owners and those looking to book holiday breaks, the new system is set to offer an easy and cost-effective new booking solution for holiday parks.
As well as helping to get your park seen by as many customers as possible, the Yourparks.co.uk easy-to-use management system brings together all elements of park promotion, bookings and sales into one place. Most parks in the UK are automatically listed on Your Parks, and once a park owner or manager has claimed their park they can add an unlimited number of rental accommodation units. Holiday makers using the website can now search through the 3,800 plus parks, selecting their ideal location based on a range of criteria, find available accommodation for their chosen dates and then book, all without having to visit multiple, external sites. Listings can be brought to life with additional images and video, and park owners can easily select which optional extras they want to include and set pricing for them. The system is designed to help parks increase sales, bookings and revenue, while still having the time to concentrate on keeping their customers happy.
Easier for park owners
Business development manager of Your Parks, Katanya Simm said, “The idea behind Your Parks has always been to make things as simple as possible for both the customer and the park owner, and this new booking functionality does just that. As staycations continue to increase in popularity, there is a growing choice of accommodation and we know from experience that a streamlined and secure booking and payment process makes a potential customer more likely to book.
Step 1 (free)
Create and account and claim your park, or add it if it’s not already there. Update the information so your free listing will work harder for you! You can add details about the location and facilities, upload photos and detail availability of holiday units available for sale, or residential homes for sale. As there is no cost to this whatsoever, park owners are being encouraged to do this regardless of whether they wish to proceed to take step 2 and take advantage of the new booking system available.
Step 2 (cost to park: 5% of total holiday break/booking price)
To make use of the easy online booking system contact Your Parks to find out more and they’ll talk you through the process and help you get the system up and running for the 2018 holiday system, so you can benefit as quickly as possible. There’s no cost at outset and there are no hidden costs, creating a clear win/win situation from the outset, and the cost is a very competitive 5% of the total break cost received. You can customise accommodation available, choosing from optional extras such as cots, towels and bed linen. The new system allows payment in full or by instalments, with card details being securely processed through the site’s fully compliant payment system, removing potential administrative headaches for the park owner, too. It is also simple to set variable prices for selected date ranges and to implement discounts, for example for customers staying more than a set number of nights; these can be either a fixed price discount of a percentage of the total cost. From your account you can quickly update details, manage reservations and view statistics. It is also possible to use the owner account area to add manual bookings manually if needed. Additional functionality, currently being developed, will allow park owners to integrate the Your Park booking system with any other booking or CRM systems that the park may already be using, making it even easier to avoid double bookings and to manage data without having to update any existing systems. It’s all designed to be a slick, trouble-free option to managing the holiday bookings process for parks!
