Sea Drift Cottage

We have been using the Holiday Bookings Online system for a number of years and it just gets better and better!

I cannot recommend the system highly enough and have recommended it to other owners. It is simple to use and professionally takes care of all of the essential tasks in confirming a booking, handling customer payments, chasing outstanding balances and giving arrival and check in details

Nigel Richards,

Wroxham Cottages

We have used bookings online for a number of years for our holiday let business in Lynton and we can only praise this system which has never let us down. If we needed any support (which is very rare) there has always been a speedy response to our query and always a good solution.

The booking system is always being improved and extended and provides excellent and comprehensive information for us and our guests.

Keep up the good work!

Michael and Debbie Gardiner

Lyn Holiday Apartments

Great online booking system, offers customers multiple payment options, and helpfully alerts owners when balances are due etc,

Couldn’t mange without it. Good telephone or email support network….a real asset to any business.

I am very happy with this system. I find it very easy to use and have always found the customer service excellent. If I need to ask a question I always get a call back very quickly with very helpful support.

Jane Wrigley

Station Cottage

Taking everything into account the system is first class and we have nothing but positive things to say about it. It does everything we want from a booking system (and more), is easy for visitors and owners to use, totally reliable, very professional and therefore in keeping with our ethos and website, is constantly being developed/improved and represents excellent value for money when compared to a bespoke system.

You have done a remarkable job and are to be congratulated.

Holiday Bookings System is well organised and efficient.  Their admin system is easy to navigate and has the all information I need.  Anne Mary Robinson
The Old Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast
The best bit about this system is I can log in wherever I am in the world!  I took 4 bookings whilst on holiday in Tenerife just this last week.   I was able to check the payment was made, tick a few boxes and the guests know I am on their case!  How good is that!

Award Winning Hedgehog Corner Short Break Self Caterings

I've been using Holiday Bookings Online system for longer than I want to remember!

I have always been impressed with the level of support, and performed in a positive polite as speedy manner. They are responsive to suggestions to enhancements and additional functionality. The system is very capable, yet still keeping it easy to understand and use.

I found the Holiday Bookings Online system through a friend who like me has a holiday home. She said that it worked for them so after looking though various www decided to join Online Booking System. It works for me as well. I specially appreciate the fast reply to my queries. Victoria McDonnell

In our first year of operation we achieved 93% occupancy - which is phenomenal for a new self catering business Toby Clarke,
Earl's Villa
This system is a godsend.  It has made my life SO much easier, and indirectly has helped me grow my business as it has automated much of my admin duties thereby enabling me to devote more time to growing my customer base.  I am really forward to working with the email marketing tool, which I haven’t even begun to use as yet. Andrew Parker
Country And Coastal Cottages
I am a new subscriber to Holiday Bookings Online and I am delighted by how much my workload has decreased. I manage 12 properties and my old system was very time consuming and unprofessional. Now, I just login to my account and can see outstanding actions, who is arriving, whose payments are due soon, or overdue etc, all at a glance. From a customer point of view, they increasingly like to know they can ‘book online.’ I won’t be going back to my old ways!

Ros Fletcher,
Jenny Wren Holidays

We love the fact the availability calendar was easy for our customers to use and can be customised to match our website Tracy Risy,
Cornwall Apartment Holidays

Brilliant on line booking package, clear and easy to use. But most of all we like the way you treat us as your customer, always helpful, clear, quick to get back to us, friendly and patient. 

Alison Highton

Oliver’s Sailing Holidays

So easy to set up and manage. Something like 50-70% of calls that are not answered hung up without leaving a message, so there's no doubt we lost business before we added a booking system

Sophie Elkins, Lazy Dog Cottage
The online payment facility means customers can pay the deposit right away.  Katharine Tiernan,

More detailed customer comments, see below:

We have been with Holiday Bookings OnLine for ten years now and cannot praise your company highly enough. Our business has grown hugely using your online booking system and has been a key enabler in making us as successful as we are. We find the whole booking system very easy to use and the fact that it is so secure gives us peace of mind - which cannot be underestimated these days.

If ever we are unsure of anything we get an immediate and helpful response to our query; the whole ethos seems to be based on ensuring high customer satisfaction and that is certainly achieved. You always go above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction and we are very grateful.

The other key factor is that our own customers always rate the booking system as very easy to use and I am pleased to say that it has never scored less than 100% satisfaction from our guests for ease of use and security.

Many thanks for all you have done, all you do do and no doubt all you will continue to do for us in the future.

Susan & Malcolm Kitchener
York Luxury Holidays

We must be amongst your greatest fans. I have been in tourism for 30+ years and before starting our self-catering holiday business in Devon I worked with a larger adventure travel company blighted by IT problems. When we sold up and started the self-catering in 2006 we chose your system as it looked easy and fitted our needs.

I have to say that in 10 years we have never had a fault, always had great response from you and your team when we have got muddled, and are always impressed by the ongoing improvements you have made.

You even managed the shift to new servers with barely a twitch, which for an IT system is wonderful. We now do direct and agency bookings all served with live info from holiday-bookings, so thanks - a great system that works flawlessly, even from my clunky mobile when on holiday.

Ian Ripper,
Wheatland Farm

We have been using Holiday Bookings online for nearly six years & throughout that time our business has grown from strength to strength, this is in no small part because of the online booking system.

The ability to take bookings in a customer friendly easy to use way means that 100% of our bookings are taken via the booking system, these days we find that all of our guests have internet access (indeed that is how they find us).

There is no longer the requirement to wait for cheques or the requirement to be able to process card payments over the phone & because customers can easily locate the prices & availability of our lodges we are not tied up dealing with telephone & email enquiries.

Holiday Bookings Online System simply outperforms the alternatives by a long way. There have been many improvements to the system over the past few years & I know that Holiday Bookings Online will continue to seek improvements wherever possible. The ability to synchronise with Mailchimp in order for us to compile an email newsletter database including all past guests who have opted in is invaluable! Calendar sync with major online advertisers so that their audiences can see our automatically updated availability & pricing is also such a great feature.

The owners dashboard provides a comprehensive suite of features that provides everything that a holiday let manager requires all in a really intuitive interface that only takes a short while to learn, current bookings, prices module, reports, reminders, special offers & so much more. In fact the owner dashboard is such a key component of our business we would be lost without it!

 

I can genuinely say that the Holiday Bookings Online System has revolutionised the way we run our business & want to say thank you very much, we will undoubtedly continue using your product for many years to come.

Lee Stirman
York Holiday Lodges
Just to say this is one of the best systems I have used, and I say this as an accountant who has used a significant number of different financial and data base systems.

The language used on the help screens is in plain English and sets out in a logical way what to do to set up or change the system. This help is reinforced by an excellent email help desk which I used on a number of occasions when I was setting up.

Great system and all you need to manage your own holiday cottage business!
Denise McConnell
Bewerley Hall Cottage

Holiday Bookings Online is a simple and easy booking system to add to your website; even if your not an IT Geek.

Clear and easy to use for both the business owner and guests too and we've added to our managed properties; from 1 to 4 and the online calendar makes my life (bookings & accounts) so much easier ; along with the housekeepers (housekeepers change-over list).

The Customer Service is A1 and super speedy; so a BIG "Thank You" from MR HESTERS & Co.

Nicky Porter,

Mr Hesters & Co.

I have used Holiday Bookings Online for a considerable time and consider it to be one of the best online booking systems for self catering I have found.

Very easy to use and incredibly well priced for its sophistication, this is a really useful addition to my web site.
The level of service provided is exceptional; emails with questions are answered instantly, seemingly regardless of time or day sent, and any queries are explained with great clarity.

Customising the bookings/payment section to fit in with my own existing site was easy and looks really impressive.

I have found guests booking at hours when the office would not normally be open and am convinced that this has helped increase bookings. Overall I have 100% satisfaction with this system and support.

Nick Compton
Elite West Holidays
The Holiday Bookings Online system works really well for us.  For the customer, it means that they can check availability and book their holiday at any time of the day or night that suits them.  They don't have to make lots of useless phone calls, and the owner doesn't have to take them either.  The online payment facility means they can pay the deposit right away.  The first time I hear of a booking, the customer has chosen their dates, booked their holiday and paid their deposit - all done and dusted, without any input from me at all.  Previously, I would have been sending out booking forms, waiting for cheques to come back, dealing with people changing their mind in the meantime - etc etc.  It is particularly helpful for late bookings, where payment can be taken immediately.

For customers who don't like online booking and paying, details can by simply input by the owner, and cheque payment or bank transfer used.

As well as a booking system, it provides a complete administrative system.  It lets me know when payments are due, what tenants are coming in each week, creates invoices for me, and has a facility for creating documents such as booking confirmations.  It also provides a database which stores all customer details securely. Returning customers are immediately recognised by the system.

Because the system is owner managed, one can change prices, make special offers, withdraw dates and so on, so that one is in direct control.

So - thumbs up for Holiday-Bookings-Online, we are very pleased with it.
Katharine Tiernan,
Lindisfarne Cottages

Just a quick email to thank you for a great booking system. We have been looking at similar for a few years now and have been put off by the high prices. Thanks to your system we now have the best site on the net and at a fantastic price.

It's so easy to use (says a non computer user) even I can use it. We have had the system live now for 3 months and the amount of work it has saved me on my rental business is amazing - a must have for anyone with rental property.
Clive Gosselin
Gosselin Rentals
We liked the fact the Holiday Booking System offered live availability - so any new bookings or changes made were instantly reflected on our website. We also love the fact the availability calendar was easy for our customers to use and can be customised to match our website Tracy Rist,
Cornwall Apartment Holidays

I have now been using Holiday Bookings Online system for 3 years and I am delighted with it. The extra features for housekeeping reports and annual income reports save a lot of time from tasks that previously had to be done manually.

The system is very easy to use and whenever I have had to contact support for any help or technical issues the response has been fantastic. I would recommending this system to anyone looking for a fully comprehensive system at a great price.

Peter Chalmers, Superior Highland Lets

On the recommendation of a friend in the holiday accommodation business, we chose your holiday booking software to link in with our own web site.
We are more than pleased with the result. The system integrates seamlessly with our site, is easy to use both for us and for our customers, and its flexibility makes it easy for me to make any changes I need to quickly and without expensive technical support.

I also want to thank you for your help in establishing our Web presence and integrating our site with your bookings system. You've replied promptly, comprehensively and helpfully to every query I've made of you and you've taken the stress out of the process of establishing our Web presence. Thank you.

The system is brilliant! It has enabled us to take money securely and automatically 'while we sleep'! We have rental properties in both UK and Greece, we are often away in one country or another. The booking and payment system means people can make reservations automatically online, no matter if we are on a plane or out having a meal. We can operate from any internet cafe, anywhere in the world and still take money securely. What's more the system ensures we can never make a double booking. Marcus Milton,
Peak Weekends,
Rent A Villa Crete
I have a self catering apartment for short term lets in Glasgow. I use Holiday Bookings Online's system to enable me to take bookings online and just as importantly to manage them. I am sure it has made such a difference in my bookings for clients to be able to book online. I looked at other systems but found this one the most affordable and easiest to manage. It means I can take a booking and even if I am not very efficient with my admin, the calendar will stop any double bookings happening as it updates automatically with every booking. I also like the text alerts as I don't always have email access. Overall I am really pleased I found this system and with the support and facilities offered I can recommend it to other accommodation providers as an ideal solution to managing online bookings. Ronnie Green
The Library Apartment

We like that customers can see in real time availability and costs saving us time because it is automated. Also customers can book and pay online, meaning we can generate bookings 24/7. Waking up with more bookings is a real bonus!

The online booking system has saved us huge amounts of time tracking bookings, raising invoices, sending receipts through the easy to use admin panel. The booking software allows us to customise the look and feel ensuring customises get a consistent look and feel.

Customers who ring can be given a personal service and pointed at the website where they can then book online when it suits them.It is just more professional!

Chris Swaine, Doonbank Cottage
I have recently set up my own website for a holiday property in Pembrokeshire, Wales. I spent a considerable length of time researching different booking systems. Of all the systems that I found, your system was by far and away the best. It is straightforward to operate and yet has many useful features. I am particularly impressed with the online booking and invoicing system. It is perfect for my requirements and excellent value for money. John Hayes
Gateholm
What a truly excellent system! So easy to set up and change. I'm no computer whizz but I'm up and running already and really pleased with your product, and how professional it looks on our web site Well worth your very reasonable fees and we will definitely be signing up for the year. Sophie Elkins

As a novice IT user I took the plunge to add Holiday Online Booking Ltd's online booking software to my web site and cannot stress enough it's user friendliness. It is very comprehensive and must be the best of any online booking system available. The help and support provided by Holiday Bookings Online has been fantastic. I would highly recommend it to all owners. Lois Clark
Swallow Cottage

We spent a long time perfecting our web site design so it was essential our accommodation booking software should fully match our site. We're delighted to say the booking system from Holiday Bookings Online is so highly customisable that we've been able to blend it in seamlessly with our web site.
The support provided by Holiday Bookings Online while setting up our online booking system was and continues to be first class. E-mails were always answered promptly (often within minutes) and the many questions we had (as non IT experts) in order to understand our system fully were answered clearly (and patiently...!!).

We're happy to recommend them to other hotel and B & B owners.
Andrew Wyatt
Kilfinan Hotel

After many hours trawling the web for holiday rental software I knew immediately that Holiday Bookings Online was the one.
The main criteria were to find a system that didn't charge a commission on each booking (especially if the booking was generated as a result of our own web site) and one that was simple to use.
The system is idiot proof; we haven't had a single problem to date with guests booking online.

It's great to get a text alert when a booking is made; I'm often away from my computer so there is no need to keep checking emails to see if somebody is on their way. Try it!
