About Bookalet

Bookalet is a booking management platform that lets you take back full management of the booking process. From managing your bookings through OTAs, through to the initial booking process, blocking off your availability calendar, guest correspondence, payment tracking and final invoicing are all managed through Bookalet

Bookalet is for property owners or property management agents looking for a booking management software that will free up time to build their business! 

Bookalet syncs with a number of channels including Airbnb, HomeAway, HolidayLettings, Independent Cottages, Booking.com and more! Visit Channel Management for a full list

Yes. We have made the single month calendar and booking form responsive so that it works with the latest mobile devices. There is obviously an interaction between the Bookalet booking form and the host website, but if both are fully responsive, the resultant pages will be mobile compliant. Due to the sheer size of the 12 month calendar and the multi property form, these will still display on mobile devices but are not fully responsive. The rate card is also fully responsive as is the property search form in the Agent account.

Yes you can. If you already have a merchant services card and take credit or debit cards over the phone, we can get you upgraded so you can take online payments. If you currently don't take credit/debit cards at all, we can help you. PayPal is a pretty easy way of establishing an online payment facility but the charges can start to add up when you're taking a significant number of bookings through this channel.

Yes we do! 

Our website builder uses a simple drag and drop system, meaning you don’t need any coding experience to create a fully responsive, stylish new website! Choose from a number of pre built templates or start with a blank canvas; the choice is yours.

Setting Up Your Bookalet Account

First, sign up for a free trial. This will let you get your head around how Bookalet works, input all of your properties and explore the system. 

Once you have done this if you need some more support, you can request a free demo and one of our team will show you the system! 

You can choose to just show the Rate Card, Availability Calendar and Enquiry form to your own website or you may be more than happy with your own site and just want to use the Management Console to track and manage all your bookings. Or you might want to do both these things and then add the online booking functionality too! 

Bookalet is an entirely flexible system that lets you run your business your way.

You can add a Rate Card, an Availability Calendar, an Enquiry Form or full Online Booking. The Online booking can either be real time payment or deferred payment depending on your preference. The Agent account also provides you with a Search Form so guests can filter the properties to find relevant accommodation.
