You can choose to show one or multiple displays on your site.

Choose How You Want To Take Reservations

We offer two types of reservation forms:

1: Confirmed Reservation Form: Your guests receive an auto reply email that contains a copy of their reservation information with a confirmation number and assumes their reservation is final.
2: Reservation Request Form: Your guests receive an auto reply email that contains a copy of their reservation information. Your guests will await to hear from you for final confirmation.

  • Both reservation form options securely collect your guest's credit card information (if you choose). You would process your guest's payment using your normal processing method.
  • When guests submit a reservation you are instantly notified by email (Premium subscribers can also choose to be notified by Text Message).
  • There are no additional fees or commissions charged to you for any reservation.

Show Your Rates and Minimum Night Stay Requirements

Choose to show your guests room rates. In addition, Availability Online can give your guests a reservation total. This total can include tax and misc. charges if you wish. Your minimum night stay requirements can also be enforced when your guests book a room.

Updating Your Availability Is Easy

Adding your vacancy information to your availability calendar is as simple as a click of your mouse. Once you login to your personal Administration Center, place a check mark in the Update Grid for each Room and Date that should appear 'booked' in your booking engine. If you use a compatible Desktop Reservation Software system, your vacancy information can be automatically updated.
