Today’s traveller expects to be able to look, book and pay for their accommodation online - rather like they would a hotel or motel.  We know baches are different, and that managing your holiday rental is a part time activity that’s got to fit around your day job.  But, we can provide travellers with an experience that approximates this with online booking.  Here’s how it works:

  • Online bookable properties allow a booking to be made, using the Book Now button, with a confirmation of acceptance received within 24 hours.
  • During the online booking process the traveller receives an accurate quotation, including any extras.  They authorise payment of a deposit by entering their credit card details, and agree to your payment and cancellation terms (rental terms).
  • You have 24 hours to accept an online booking.  During this period you can contact the traveller to vet them in the same way you would vet any other enquiry.  You have full control over who stays at your property.
  • Once you accept the booking, the credit card payment is processed and the traveller gets immediate confirmation.  Plus, you’re not in limbo waiting for them to make their deposit payment.
  • Unattended online bookings expire after 24 hours. We notify the traveller and can suggest alternative properties that may suit their needs.

The online booking process gives the traveller confidence that they can secure their choice of property, with certainty, and with confirmation within 24 hours, which is exactly what travellers want.  As a result online bookable listings get more enquiries and more committed enquirers.  Online bookings convert at 2.5x the rate of a standard enquiry!

Online booking requires Bookabach Online Payments.   When you accept payments through Bookabach you are covered by our Property Damage Protection and your guests are covered by our Book with Confidence Guarantee.
