Why choosing Vik Booking?

The reservations coming from channels like Booking.com and Expedia have been growing more and more in the last few years for most properties worldwide.

However, travelers are always keen to look for the best price for their stays, and this is why having a booking engine on your own website is so important.

Are all Booking Engine systems the same?

Most Booking Engines are hosted externally, on a different website than yours, and so your visitors will be redirected away to complete their reservations.

They might be questioning themselves "am I still booking the same property?", and the risk they will decide to rather book your property on Booking.com is pretty high in this case.

This means a loss of a direct booking with no commissions.
Moreover, most external booking engines have recurring costs per month o per year, because the software is not yours.

How can you truly increase your direct bookings then?

  • Every single step of the booking process on your website

    Vik Booking is a booking engine completely installed on your own website. Every single step of the booking process will take place on your WordPress website by never redirecting your customers away.

  • Special tools will make your life easier

    Dedicated tools, such as the Dashboard and the Forecast, will help you plan all the operations. This way you can easily focus on your accommodation business to maximize the revenue.

  • This is how you maximize your revenue by saving on commissions.

"Since we are using your booking engine we increased the 90% of our direct bookings."

"Thanks to the Dashboard, we can see which room had to be done first, depending on how late the guests arrived. A good overview at the occupation of the month, it helps us to focus our attention commercially."

Full-featured booking engine that does what it has to and even more.

Installed a Pro version and completely satisfied with it. The booking engine allowed a granular control over prices and booking conditions for our chain of holiday rent homes.
Support is really fast and ready to help.
Top choice if you need a reliable Booking system.
— Dossis
Web Designer

Was the best option to fulfill my needs.

Our market demands to have occupancy prices, per night/per person in off season and children prices by age. in high season we need price / room regardless the number and the age of the persons.
Many other booking solutions instead are offering only price/room options.
Vik Booking has a good and friendly design as well. I'm also able to build my booking engine in 99% in a similar way as on Booking.com and other major ota website.

Vik Booking - Setup different prices

Per Day Pricing

This is the most common pricing model. Every day of the year can have its own cost. For example, you can have different rates on weekdays than weekend, or in days of high season rather than low season.

Per Day by Length of Stay

This pricing model is often adopted by Apartments, Villas and B&Bs. Rates can be defined depending on the number of nights of stay. For example, 1 night EUR 80, 2 nights EUR 150, and so on.

Per Occupancy Pricing

Those who use different rates depending on the number of adults will find this function fundamental. Adjust the costs of the rooms depending on the number of adults that occupy it. A classic example for this pricing model is the cost for the single usage of a double room.

Per Children's Ages

The system allows to optionally define costs with absolute or percentage value, so that it's also possible, for example, to make a child pay the 100% of the room cost if older than a certain age. In this case, after a specific age, children can be considered as adults.

Seasonal Prices and Promotions

Vik Booking will let you alter the default rates on some seasons, holidays, weekends and festivities of the year. By setting charges or discounts as either absolute or percentage values, you will be able to adjust your rates in no time.

WordPress Hotel Vik Booking plugin - Booking Restriction

Setup your booking Restrictions

With the restrictions, you can define your booking rules for certain dates/months of the year. For example, in high season you can limit the Minimum Length of Stay (Min LOS) to 2 nights. Otherwise, you could set up a Maximum Length of Stay rule (Max LOS) or force the arrival and departure day to something like Friday/Monday.

CTA/CTD (Closed to Arrival/Departure)

Restrictions can also be used to close certain days to arrival and/or departure. That's what the CTA and CTD rules are meant for. An experienced hotel manager knows for sure what these restrictions should be used for. All the restrictions are perfectly compliant with the OTA Standards.

Week-Day Arrival and Departure Combinations

Guide your visitors during the selection of the dates for check-in and check-out. With some Restrictions in place, the system will automatically exclude certain dates depending on the minimum and maximum stay, and eventually on the days closed/forced to arrival/departure.

Suggest the Closest Booking Solutions

in case of no availability for the dates or party requested. The system can suggest to book on some other dates when there is still availability, or it can suggest a different booking solutions to allocate all the guests into the available rooms.
