booking widgets hotels car rental, tourism and destintions Bookings Widgets for Hotel & Tourism Websites

booking widget for your website of travel portal arcRes booking and reservations widgets can be used by hotels and tourism operators of all types (apartment bookings, condo reservations, villa rentals, activities, car rentals, tour reservations, etc.).


The widgets can be customised to your website giving travellers a consistent experience while offering advanced shopping services including interactive quotes, reservations, bookings, lead generation and direct marketing.

The widgets are easily customised to your site colours and fonts by editing a simple stylesheet file. Two stylesheets are supplied, one for the horizontal bookings form and another for the vertical form.

Each page of your website may select either style. We recommend you use the horizontal travel reservations widget on the top of all pages (example Nautilus Beach Apartments). Build the vertical booking widget into your travel reservations page (example Palm Garden Hotel).

Your webmaster may also create a custom reservations design for you.

Booking widgets are also available for Facebook and Wordpress

tourism booking widgets for websites Setup Travel Bookings on your Website

To setup your travel booking engine please ask your webmaster to follow these 3 steps:

1. Set up the travellers tracking script on your website.
Before you install the bookings widget (form) on your website your webmaster will need to past the following javascript to each page of the website, replacing "iconmap" with the value supplied for your property.

This code may be placed in the <head> tag or in the body - i.e. on the top of the page below the "body" tag. This code sets up the cookies that track your travel leads and marketing effectiveness.

2. Add the script to display your booking form
It is recommended that you place the booking widget on each page of your website. This has been shown to increase bookings by as much as 20% in many cases.

Wherever the booking engine is to appear, include the code below, replacing "iconmap" with the value supplied for your property. We recommend that you place the booking engine on every page of your website.


3. Put the bookings stylesheets on your server and link it in each page
Copy either the arcRes-vertical.css or arcRes-horizontal.css stylesheet into your stylesheet directory.

Include this link in the HEAD of each page. e.g.:

The fonts and colours in the bookings stylesheet can be customised to suit your site. We suggest using the horizontal widget in all pages except the reservations page.

Chain Hotels Reservations

For small chain hotels, the booking engine can appear on each hotel website with a dropdown list of hotels. In this instance iconmap in step 2 above will be replaced with "iconmap1|iconmap2|iconmap3","HotelName1^HotelName2^HotelName3".

Webmasters will need to insure that the instructions above are implemented.

If the hotel or tourism property is using arcRes as a secondary reservations engine the webmaster must ensure that client or session management or cookies is enabled at the application level and follow the procedure below:

A client variable/session variable/cookie named "axsesReferrer" must be set to the value of the URL variable "axsesReferrer" in every page.

This bookings code is available in the following formats. Cut and paste this code into each page or save as an included file and include on every page.
