Self-catering

Maximise your opportunities for bookings while reducing your admin

Anytime Booking is an ideal fit if you are a self-catering holiday accommodation provider or holiday let agency looking for a flexible, powerful self-catering online booking and management software to help you run your business.

Run your self-catering business with some of the greatest flexibility on the market

Whether you are managing holiday cottages, sea-side apartments, woodland chalets or countryside lodges, we understand that at such a competitive end of the holiday sector, you will need to respond to changes in the market all the time.

Unlike some booking systems out there, we don’t lock you into annual rates, so if you want to slash your prices or put your tariff up, you can do so whenever you like. We can also help you with easier decision-making based on our built-in reporting and analysis. You can change the content of your branded automated emails at any time as well, to make sure your guests are always getting the right message.

 

Do more with our Agency Module

Running multiple properties or caravans owned by other people? Our Agency Module will make life easy. Set your commission charges; manage your owner logins and statements; send your owners and housekeeping staff automatic email notifications of new bookings, and manage suppliers and expenses.

Powerful connections and upselling opportunities

We will increase your visibility on the web and get you more bookings by automatically synchronising and sharing real-time availability with third party OTAs (sales channels), such as AirBnb, Booking.com and TripAdvisor. This kind of channel management is essential for any self-catering online booking and management software worth its salt.

 Upsell unlimited extras (we call them add-ons) alongside your bookings such as charges for dogs, welcome hampers and local activities.

Thank you, Anytime, for helping us to win best Family Friendly Accommodation in England!

Paul Smith, Managing Director, Bosinver

"We have had a very busy summer period at The Thatches Holiday Village this year thanks to the booking system and it's been made much easier with the help of the Anytime Booking staff.  A big thank you to Becky for answering all my questions."

Chris Duff, General Manager, The Thatches Holiday Village

"Great service from lovely people who are not only flexible and open in their approach but also have a good sense of humour and a genuine desire to help. Recently migrated to their systems for our holiday home rental business and it was one of the best business decisions we ever made."

John Gunn, Managing Director, Sandcastle Holidays

Some more key system features to help you manage your holiday properties with ease

Our self-catering online booking and management software does more! 

Charge per property with additional functionality to charge for extra people

Apply seasonal fluctuations to your tariff and create special discounts to encourage more stays out of peak season

Keep track of your free extras such as high chairs and stair gates

If you use a third party supplier for local produce for welcome hampers, for example, the system will automatically email them to let them know an order has come in

Ask the system to recognise troublesome guests who have stayed with you before, or to identify repeat ‘loyalty’ guests who you would like to treat differently to first-time bookers; building customer lists helps you to easily identify segments of your guests

Control your party member settings to accept bookings with a lead name only or take the details of each party member, whatever works for you; you can choose the data you wish to capture at the point of booking
