  1. The requested feature is that guests can register on a wait list on fully booked dates with automatic email notifications for when rooms are again available on the desired date(s).

    This would remove any need for manual labor from the hotel side to handle wait lists.

    Example:
    - Guest tries to book a room Aug 1st - Aug 2nd
    - Hotel is fully booked
    - Guest opts in to our guest list by entering their email address
    - Hotel opens up for bookings on Aug 1st
    - Guest automatically receives email saying that the date(s) they searched for now have…

  2. We've just tested conversion on the mews booking engine vs siteminder and mews is significantly lower and what appears to be the key fix is to allow the site visitors to see all bookable spaces/rooms/packages available on step 1 in combination with date selector so they can refine down to preferred room and dates. I've seen multiple other requests which suggest the same issue

  3. Many properties with accommodation packages (eg. spa, activities/tours etc) want the ability to first chose the package, prior to chose the room type as this could be an "early stage" upsell in the booking flow.

  4. When a family is booking online, the booking engine doesn’t currently cater for validate the age of guests within a room. This creates invalid reservations with children and/or babies staying alone in a room. This requires a solution I believe.

  6. When guests are filling out mandatory fields in the booking engine, such as their phone number, they can fill out a number that does not exist and the booking engine will accept this as a phone number (e.g. just the number "0").

    It would be helpful if the booking engine would recognize phone numbers as a valid phone number, so we have all contact details we may need from the guest after they make the booking.

  7. Have the possibility send a seperate, secured link just to update the credit card details (not through online check in, but prior to booking) when guests want to book through e-mail, so guests can update their cc details without having to call or send the details through email.

  8. Be able to split payments of a reservation by amount. in the bill.

    For example:

    A room cost 1500 SEK. one guest want to pay 500 SEK and one guest want to pay 1000 SEK

    Atm, this option is not available.

  9. To customize the guest journey for distribution partners, we would LOVE to see the ability to customize background images for individual booking engines for accommodations as well as for availability blocks. Not only will examples of this experience help get distribution partnerships over the finish line, but it will also create a custom and personalized experience for the relevant guests. Furthemore, it creates numerous opportunities for cobranding.

  10. Currently - settlement + cancellation policies are not visible to the guest in the booking engine. So for each rate code - we have to manually insert text to describe this in multiple languages.
    Most other Booking Engines display these rules by default during the booking-process online. Mews should be able to auto-generate this text - in multiple languages.

    The proposed solution would remove potential mismatch/errors between text & rules , save time for the user, and create a more sellable text to display rather than focusing a lot of the text to rules regarding the reservation.

  11. I design websites for hotel and am working on the first site where Mews needs to be integrated. It surprised me to see that it is not possible to link to a specific room or package in the booking engine.

    Every hotel website I worked with wants a page on their where they describe and promote their room types and packages. It makes perfectly sense to add a [Book now] button to that description, which raises the expectation that you can directly book that room type or package with a click on that button.

    Unfortunately this is not possible with…

  12. It would be great to be able to
    - setup public promotions / special offer campaigns like you can do on booking.com or expedia. Setup a special offer as a percentage or fixed amount discount based upon (a selection of) existing public rate, possibly with restrictions in terms of booking window and/or travel window, etc..
    - setup private discounts on (a selection of) existing rates with a promo code, for example a code returning guets can enter in the booking engine to access a returning booker discount on all rates ,...
    - above offers/discounts shall be also available for staff…

  13. When a breakfast product (regardless of price) is attached to a reservation it should not be promoted again to the customer.

    Current Mews logic: “a product will not be promoted to a guest if it is attached to the booking” - suggested change “products within the same product category will not be promoted to a guest if any product within that category is attached to the booking”.

  14. When you are in the process of booking a room you should be able to make a table reservation in the same process. The table reservation should be linked to an inventory.

  15. For us, there is no reason for still show any categories without availability. It's only a distraction to the potential guest. Please add a function which allows to hide the non available categories.

  16. The ability to make just one request via the booking engine. Not every hotel wants the guest to always be able to book directly. Sometimes you only want to see the availability of the rate and category.

    Example:
    Especially for other services or spaces such as meetings and events, you should only be able to see the information and the hotel then decides how to handle the request.
    Smaller hotels that also sell the entire house do not always want to receive direct inquiries.

  17. I limit the ability to book more than 360 in advance as we have MANY guests that book year after year. We found that people that wanted stay here were trying to book rooms out from under current guests so we limited the availability online to stop this from happening. By making this restriction we have made it so reservations can not book our current guests either. In addition we do not do same day booking on the internet. We have made it so you can not book same day on the web but, if we decide to book a…

  18. It would be great to have a task created when a product is added during the booking process on the booking engine. This will save time so the team do not have to search upcoming bookings.

  19. We need more customization options in the mail templates. To create a new template and choose when it is sent would be greatly beneficial. We also need more options to customize the existing templates, we should be able to use all existing placeholders in all emails, so for example we could include just arrival date or number of guests, without departure date and rate.
