Our distribution managers, have discovered that sometimes hotels do not have a system administrator, webmaster or developer to help them integrate the booking button, also called booking engine into their website.
Other times the website administrator is too busy with other tasks or does not know how to properly integrate the booking engine technology. Very common is iFrame or Pop-ups on the website itself that many times are integrated in a wrong way or in the wrong place. If hotel owner decided for iFrame, which we do not recommend for various reasons, then the webmaster has to be extra carefull to add propoer settings and adjustments as follows:
iFrame / Pop-up window
Padding, boarders and size
style="padding:1px;border:1px solid black;"
Developer also needs to make sure the window of the iframe is not too small. Therefore adding appropiate boarders and size.
Here is an example of size:
<iframe width="640" height="360"
Example of boarders:
An <iframe> with a left and right margin of 50 pixels:
<iframe src="demo_iframe.htm" marginwidth="50">
iFrame real example of wrong integration
External link real example of good integration
Therefore, CultBooking developer was given the task to integrate the booking engine as external link on as many points of the property website as possible. So that is easy for the user to find the book now button.
First of all the ‘book now’ has been integrated directly on home, the first image background appearing when entering the website:
So the green button: ‘Jetzt buchen’ has been added. Moreover, buttons have been added when scrolling down on the following sections:
All of these buttons lead to external link that opens a page where the user is able to freely simulate a search for available rooms:
