How to setup a booking and reservation system on your website easily with UpBooking
The entire setup consists of three steps. First one is to setup the hotel, motel, hostel, rent-a-car or any of the other services which are their derivatives, inside your UpBooking account. Image above shows us a hotel which we have already created.
Fill out all the information about the establishment, name, address, check-in and check-out hour, payment methods and so on. When you’re done click Save and you’ll get to the main menu, the one that can be on the first image above. For step two you need to click on the Search Script button of the establishment that you’ve just setup.
This is the code that you need to embed in your website, thats step three. After you do that, visitors which are visiting your website can use the booking interface to reserve a room, which will then be shown in your UpBooking account under Bookings.
