Bookassist’s Availability Calendar Enhances Direct Booking Experience

By Claire Sawier | On Fri, September 13, 2019

As part of Bookassist’s continued commitment to being a Mobile First company it has just released an update to its Availability Calendar.

This update significantly enhances the direct booking experience on calendar by simplifying the decision making process and altogether improving booker engagement.

At a glance, bookers can immediately see both available dates and dates where there is no availability. They are also presented with the best rate for each available date with the best prices across the month highlighted in green.

With Bookassist’s Availability Calendar the decision making process is simplified and booking friction is reduced as the needs of both date sensitive bookers and flexible date bookers are satisfied in an intuitive, user friendly interface.

Booker feedback has been very positive as a result of immediate pricing and availability information now being readily available at their fingertips. Equally, initial feedback from hotels using the new calendar has also been extremely positive with hotels already experiencing an uplift in conversion KPIs.
