Setup Instructions

 

Now you have setup your Booking.com account and signed up for Guestlink + Worldwide you are ready to setup the link between the two for automatic updates. Follow the below instructions to get it all working.

Booking.com Configuration

 

Linking your booking.com account with Guestlink

Login into the Booking.com extranet, navigate to Account > Channel Manager > start and enter Guestlink (NVG or New Vision Group) for a full 2-way connection. This will send a request through to Guestlink.

Note: You need to setup the rooms individually in the Booking.com extranet in order to map these to Guestlink with identifiable names for ease of mapping. You will also be required to set the occupancy when you enter rooms in Booking.com. The occupancy needs to be entered exactly the same in Guestlink within Channels > + Worldwide.

Guestlink Configuration

 

Mapping your rooms/units

Login to Guestlink and navigate to Channels > + Worldwide. Enter your Booking.com ID number and save. Upon saving your Booking.com ID your Booking.com rooms will become available for you to map with the rooms you have in Guestlink.

Once you have mapped the rooms, further options become available within Channels > + Worldwide. You have the choice to send certain rooms, send single occupancy and enter the numbers of days you would like to send across.

Confirming the Connection

 

To confirm the connection, you will then need to log back into your Booking.com extranet and navigate to Account > Channel Manager > confirm the connection with Guestlink and accept their T&Cs.

Note: It can then take up to 20 minutes to send the availability and pricing from Guestlink into Booking.com to be seen live to customers. After the initial send updates will be made automatically.

Dealing with Bookings

 

When you receive a booking you will be notified by Guestlink via email, text or both and you can see the customers details in your Guestlink account.

Note: If you wish to view the card details the customer has entered during the booking process you will need to login to the Booking.com extranet.
