We are looking for Hotels and Hostels Search Engine for our current web site. The idea is visitors can do a search and make a reservation on line. Our main services are Hotel reservation.
We need the following functions:
Customers are the people who surf the website and book the room.
1. Customers should be able to search through the available Hotels using the Booking engine (i.e. the search module at the home page). The users can search for the room availability using following search criteria:
[url removed, login to view] Adults
[url removed, login to view] Children
No. of Rooms
Hotels Post Code
Bed and Breakfast
2. Customers should be able to book a hotel room after they have chosen the right one. At the time of booking customers should have a choice of making a full payment upon arrival. However they have to provide a valid credit card .and they should be warned the %X (10% or 15%) of the booking needs to be paid to secure the booking.
3. Customers should get a confirmation email with regards to their booking.
4. Customers should be able to cancel a booking if they wish. The cancelation should be done 24 hrs before the arrival date. If they try to cancel after 24 Hrs then the booking engine shouldn't allow the customer to cancel. Instead it should display a message saying you have exceeded the cancelation period. Please see Cancellation terms & Condition. (we will provide you the exact message and the cancellation period)
5. If the cancellation is success then the customer, the Hotel admin and the web admin should get a confirmation email.
Hotel Admins are the administrators of each hotel who has his/her own unique login to our web site so that they can login to the admin page and update the availability of their room.
The hotel admin should be able to do the followings:
1. Update the availability of their hotel rooms.
