In this tutorial, we will show you how to embed or integrate your CultBooking URL into your website. The recommended integration is implemented via external link.
Why external link integration? Advantages
- Easy and fast to install
- Responsive and mobile friendly. CultBooking URL is fully dynamic and does not have the limitations of iframe when comes to different screen sizes.
- Improved user experience. Booking engine application is fully responding to user needs, also all the elements are kept within correct proportions.
CultBooking compatible with all Content Management Systems (CMS)
WordPress website development platform, is market leader among various Web Content Management Systems (CMS), with ca. 18 million websites. Followed by Adobe Dreamweaver with ca. 2.7 and Joomla! with ca. 2.5 million websites.
So now questions arises: If you use WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, TYPO3, Shopify, Magento, PrestaShop, Wix or any other Content Management system, will you be able to integrate the CultBooking link/URL? The answer is: YES!
‘ CultBooking is compatible with all CMS solutions existing on the market.’
At the moment there is only one integration type that we strongly recommend and support:
External link integration / Clickable hyperlink
External link integration, also called clickable hyperlink, is an HTML coding technique that links a certain button/text to an URL within a webpage. Clickable hyperlink is very helpful when you are using a third party website (like CultBooking— to receive direct bookings from your website) and you want your website visitors to interact with it to increase your revenue and number of bookings.
Examples of integration
Here are some examples of how to integrate clickable hyperlink, using the Book Now button. I have highlighted the Book Now call to action.
How to hyperlink CultBooking on your website?
Step 1. Preparing the code
Copy the following HTML code:
YOUR URL LINK – your CultBooking personal link provided by your account manager. This is a unique URL has been produced for you.
YOUR TEXT BUTTON – your call to action button, like: ‘Book Now’
Replace the “YOUR LINK” with the CultBooking link you want to be displayed on your webpage. Replace ‘YOUR TEXT’ with the text you want to be hyperlinked
You link should look like this (an example):
<div class=”booking”><a href=”https://neo.cultbooking.com/CPC/?agentcode=58078&hotelcode=42752&lang=de” target=”_blank”>Online Buchen</a></div>
Step 3. Inserting the code to the website
Log into your website HTML editor and add the code to the <body>.

iFrame / Pop-up / On-site
Some hotels have integrated CultBooking URL as an iFrame, also called pop-up or On-site integration. We strongly discourage this practice as has many dissatvantages. The main show stopper is the usability gets broken and conversion rates are lower, as the user can not see the inferior side of the booking engine, where the Book Now button is placed.
The Book Now gets activated once the user selects one room.
URL link CultBooking
CultBooking team or your account manager will provide URL link to hotel owner or developer to integrate ideally as external link, also called clickable hyperlink.
