Clients who already work with it:
How can I offer the Booking.com check-in to my guests?
In order to offer the Booking.com check-in to your guests, Hotelbird Web check-in must be activated and you need an iPad with the Hotelbird Terminal App on site to be able to scan the check-in pass of your guests.
How do guests receive the Booking.com check-in invitation?
Booking.com sends every guest with a eligible reservation an invitation to check-in online via email. Guests who use the Booking.com Android App will also receive a push message on their smartphone. Currently it is not working with multiple room reservations.
Can guests who have not booked through Booking.com still use the online check-in?
Yes! Booking.com check-in works in parallel to our previous process. Your guests can still check-in with the Hotelbird App, via Web check-in or Terminal.
Is the guest invited to check-out?
No, all email communication for Booking.com bookings is turned off. The guest can always check out via App, Web and Terminal, but the service must be communicated to the guest in another way.
How can the guest pay?
Normally, the guest already pays directly via Booking.com. However, if this has not been done, he simply enters his payment details at the Terminal during check-in at the hotel.
Does the channel cost extra?
No, there are no additional costs for the hotel.
Does Booking.com check-in work with any PMS?
Yes, Booking.com check-in works with all PMS systems connected to Hotelbird. The only exception: If you use Oracle Cloud, we unfortunately cannot offer Booking.com check-in at this time.
