Since we launched marinareservation.com, we have learned from our partner marinas that the difference between a good and a great service is to always offer your customer a bit more than he expected. This thought was a challenge, but at the same time it inspired us to give more, do better and try harder.
So, for all the marinas that team up with us: we brought that extra-something that will make the difference not only in your business, but also in the relationship with your clients.
Here is a list of the most important features on marinareservation.com designed to improve your experience as a partner and also empower your business:
Flexible business profile
You can now select the type of booking that is the most suitable for your marina. Try direct booking if you can provide real time updates on your berths’ availability; this way there is no need for you to confirm anything. Just set up your prices and you’re done.
Use monitored booking if your marina is a busy place and your marina occupancy level is unpredictable. This way, when the request comes, you can decide on the spot if you can accept it or not. Don’t worry, you don’t have to check your account all the time to see the requests, we will let you know via email and SMS when a request has been made in your marina.
Customizable boat profile
You will be able to require from your potential clients only the boat information you’re interested in (like boat registration number, boat country, boat model, boat name). The administrator of a marina can specify which information is mandatory and which is optional.
Advanced preferences for measurement units
Yes, you can select your representative unit of measure for displaying your berths in Extranet (meter/feet). No matter where you are located in the world, we offer both the metric and the imperial system as options for the units.
Fast, simple and efficient transactions
Send your earned money from your Extranet directly to your bank account by using only your Company Name, Bank Account, and VAT number. No extra bank taxes to be paid. You get what you withdraw.
User friendly reservations calendar
Keep track of all the Past and Upcoming reservations in your Reservation Calendar menu. Being organized comes almost naturally when you have a visually appealing design you can interact with. Want to know what is so special about it? You will just have to see it for yourself.
Smart features for flexible pricing models
All businesses are different so instead of asking you to adjust to fit into the system, we created a system that is tailored to your needs. With the platform’s new functionalities, you have more options and freedom in terms of pricing:
a. Set your own criteria for calculating the berth prices: length classes, square meters, fixed length classes, fixed length and beam classes.
b. Require a percent (not the entire price) to be paid by your clients via MarinaReservation.com. For example 100% means full payment and 50% – half payment via our website. Also, you can apply a required payment only to the first day of booking.
c. Set up your general prices for any time period, starting from daily, weekly, monthly, 3 months to 6 months and yearly prices. Still not flexible enough for you? Set up a custom number of days for which the price will apply.
d. Create your own custom seasons and set custom prices for them.
e. Create discounts and apply them to the general prices or to your seasonal pricing. You can also apply them to any booked period or to trips with a minimum number of days set by you.
f. Create a special offer price for a client who has already requested a berth with a default price. He will be informed via email of the new offer he has received.
g. Add facilities for your marina and set up prices for the ones you would like to rent to your customers. Clients will be able to rent them by the hour/ person/ boat/ day or by holiday, depending on your chosen criteria.
