Channel Management for Anytime Booking Users

What is Channel Management?

Channel management allows you to hook up your website to third party booking providers to flood your business with new bookings.

Typically, these third-party providers charge some commission on bookings coming through them – it helps to think of the money you pay to them as your marketing budget, since their job is to direct people searching online for availability to your campsite or property, ensuring your business becomes well, or ideally fully, booked.

How Does Channel Management help? 

Our Channel Management offering will save you valuable time and money spent on marketing. We’ve prioritised working with camping and self-catering related travel websites to share real time availability and drive bookings directly into your Anytime Booking diary.
