Google Calendar now great for holiday accommodation providers

June 27, 2010

Google Calendar has been a bit of a revelation for me. It’s extremely simple to use and well laid out.
Every week they’ve been adding new features, but the current one that interests me is being able to publish your calendar, or integrate it into your website.
For people renting out cottages, or B&B’s or caravans with a simple website, this feature could now mean they can show potential customers when they are booked and when they still have availability. By using Google Calendar as the root of their main booking system, it would mean that their site was always up to date and they wouldn’t have to field endless calls or emails from people wanting to stay on that week when the place is already fully booked.
It’s win-win, great for the business and great for the guests.
