And for your guests

Visitors to your website or Hoofkantoor partners can use the online booking system o quickly see whether there are any available units or activities, in their desired time period, and make instant bookings and payments.

If the desired time frame offers no availability, the guest can have a look at the overview of reservations in order to see when units will be free again.

It is also possible to book more than one unit at once (group booking) as well as make bookings for different dates at the same time.

As a Vendor, you can book your guests into other venues on the Hoofkantoor system.

Complete control for you as an owner

  • As an owner, you alone decide when, and which units are available for online booking.
  • You can set a minimum duration of stay.
  • You can also set specific week days for arrivals and departures.
  • You can choose to receive notification of all quotes and bookings made by e-mail via the online reservation system.
  • The Hoofkantoor Reception login automatically transfers walk-ins, deposits, extras and guest data to your Hoofkantoor setup, which keeps processing time and money collection to a minimum.

Less work and no risk of double bookings

The Hoofkantoor system centralises on-line bookings, as well as ‘at reception’ or agent bookings, all in one database.

You no longer have to manually edit availability or allocate different rentable units to each online booking engine, which eliminates the risk of double bookings.

Increase your occupancy rate with a shared central marketing database

We have several agents using the system, and all accommodation and/or activities on Hoofkantoor show on all these sites, thereby increasing your bookings possibilities enormously.

What does all this cost?

  • All Vendor (or own bookings) are FREE
  • All confirmed bookings made through the Hoofkantoor on-line booking system, will be subject to 10% commission plus VAT
