Now you can accept campground reservations directly through your web site day or night with our BookYourSite.com online booking portal. Fully integrated with Astra, BookYourSite is ready to connect your empty sites with qualified RVers.
BookYourSite is an online booking portal that allows your customer to make campsite/cabin/trailer reservations online any time of the day or night. BookYourSite is fully integrated with Astra so there’s no additional work to do. Your park availability and rates are always in sync so your customer will get accurate, up-to-the-minute information at all times.
Additional marketing channels
Over the past year we’ve stepped up our portal marketing efforts to help bring the market to you. Though our use of newsletters, blogs and social media efforts we have grown and engaged our member base to over 100,000 qualified RVers. BookYourSite customers have the option to add a booking link directly to their Trip Advisor listing. The link would forward the reservation to BookYourSite for processing so transactions would follow the normal booking process. Additional TA booking fees would apply.
The BookYourSite iPhone and Andriod app is another marketing component included by being an Astra customer. The app is popular with mobile travelers with over 23,000 app downloads. The app allows campers to evaluate your park and book a real time reservation while on the road.
How BookYourSite™ works
A ‘Book Now’ button is added to your website that brings the customer directly to your booking page with real-time data allowing access to check availability, show pricing and process payment. Upon completion it sends an email confirmation to the customer and the reservations details are entered into your database along with credit card payment, receiving your money immediately. We work with you to make sure you park rules are in place and working properly before going live.
With a purchase of Astra there is no additional cost to add BookYourSite™ to your web page. Your webmaster can easily add the link to your pages. There is a transaction fee of $5 per reservation made through BYS. Most campgrounds pass the transaction fee along to the customer as a booking fee. This option can be easily added to your BYS billing options during initial setup, so there is no added work on your part. Credit card payments will have the regular processing fee charged by your processor.
