How do I request a booking?
This article is for: Renters
Every Bookabach listing has a price and availability box that is located underneath the main property description. To make a booking request, follow these simple steps:
1) Either enter your arrival date using the calendar icon and click the “Go” button, or scan for your dates using the scroll-key at the top of the calendar. You can scan week by week by clicking the arrows on each side of the display.
Note that we use the following colour codes on the calendar:
RED: The property is already booked.
YELLOW: Provisionally booked (a requested or accepted booking is already present). You are welcome to make an enquiry but you are unlikely to have it accepted.
GREY: Availability information not displayed. You can still request a booking, but you will have to wait to find out availability.
You’ll also find public, provincial and school holidays marked on the calendar (small coloured triangles)
2) Use the tick-boxes to select the dates you want to stay. Holding your cursor over a date will bring up a pop-up box with full pricing information and any minimum night stay requirement.
3) Click the red “Request a booking” button once you’ve selected your days. (Note: the green “Make a booking” button is designed to switch between pages and doesn’t actually lodge your booking).
4) Add and/or edit the relevant details and submit your request.
When you request a booking, the website will immediately notify the bach owner or property manager. You’ll receive an acknowledgement email from us and in most cases it will have the property owner’s/manager’s contact phone numbers, so you can call to follow up your request.
A record of your booking request will be entered in My Bookabach > Bookings.
If you want to book for a shorter period than the minimum night stay requirement, you should use the “Ask a Question” function on the listing to directly contact the property owner/manager. If they’re willing to accept a shorter stay, they can convert your question to a booking from their end.
