Website with Booking Platform for Campsite
A well regarded campsite in Gloucestershire wanted to take bookings online and integrate their reservations with other booking platforms seamlessly.
- Have a clean and tidy website to reflect their campsite.
- Integrate a booking platform so that guests could book and pay for pitches online.
- Use the booking system as a CRM to manage all bookings.
- Integrate their main booking system with other booking platforms such as AirBnb and CoolCamping.co.uk.
- Keep costs to a minimum.
Process & Tools
- To keep costs to a minimum I recommended we use an Astra starter template instead of starting the design from scratch to save time and costs. I also recommended we use a ready made booking calendar plugin instead of hiring a developer to complete the custom coding.
- After researching various booking calendar plugins to use with WordPress it was decided that Hbook would be the best.
- Tripled revenue within the first two months of taking payments online.
- Management of reservations is entirely online through one online booking system which the entire team can see and have access too.
- The iCal integration now means they are gaining bookings via third party websites.
