Why use an online booking system?
Currently in the travel and tourism market the demand is growing for affordable accommodation. This is due to numerous factors. One is the fact that travel costs to South Africa are becoming a major part of the tourists travel budget to South Africa.
Many tourists also prefer the more flexible self-arranged tours these days and the growth in the small group self arranged tourism market is well known. The one draw back is that these tourists have to book their flights and their accommodation by themselves. Before the growth of the Internet this use to be extremely difficult.
Today the only main problems for tourists from abroad is that they normally only have 24 hours to ensure that their travel and accommodation requests are 100% confirmed.
Very often travelers become extremely frustrated as they land up waiting for numerous homeowners to respond to their requests for information or accommodation only to find out that they are already booked. By this time, tourists very often have to re-do their flights and start the process all over!
Most other accommodation websites offers you an attractive website, with pictures, prices, and contact information. We see this as “window” shopping after hours.
(You look at a lovely display, but it is closed for business as there is nobody around to check the stock, give you your item - your confirmed holiday booking - and take the money)
Our Web Sites offer powerful database system that will enable potential clients to search for only the available accommodation and THEN to book this accommodation and to pay for it online in a matter of 5 minutes.
