Tools for the receptionists

Vik Booking is used and loved by hundreds of properties every day to welcome customers, and to check them in or out. The Dashboard is the perfect tool to easily see an overview of the guests who are arriving, leaving and staying at the hotel.

Reservations can also be marked as No Show in case the customer did not show up, and you can also check-out the customers to inform all the other receptionists.

Receptionists and managers can set up the system to let the customers place a signature through a multi-device compatible Signature Pad. At the end of the Check-in process, it is also possible to generate a Check-in Document in PDF format with the customer's signature.

Every Registration can be used to generate and export reports for the various Authorities (Police, State etc..) and for private Statistics.

The documentation covers everything! If it's not there, it's because you need support, and the support is great!
It is not the cheapest component, but well worth the money!

Rate Plans and Rooms Rates for any Pricing Model

Any kind of pricing model

The Pricing Framework of Vik Booking was developed to support any kind of pricing model by following the OpenTravel Alliance Standards. Whether you use rates per nights of stay (LOS), rates by occupancy or per-day rates, with Vik Booking you will be able to set up any possible pricing rule.

Type of Prices for each room on Vik Booking

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 property that would like to give a Double Room to one Adult only for example, can define a charge or a discount for the single occupancy of the room.

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.

Restriction for the reservations on Vik Booking Extension

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. Another must-have feature to balance the bookable dates. 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.

This is what other customers think about Vik Booking

A very good booking system together with a very useful channel manager

I purchased Vik Booking because I needed to integrate my website with all the channels. It made easier for us planning the day thanks to the dashboard.
I found it very useful because it is helping us to make a plan every morning for the entire day. We can see which room had to be done first, depending on how late the guests arrived.
Thanks also a good overview at the occupation of the month, it helps us to focus our attention commercially.
Frank
Owner of B&B Heart of Leiden

Was the best option to fulfill my needs.

Vik Booking 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.
