Hourly Reservations Made Easy

Posted on Updated on

The WebReserv booking system can be set up for many types of applications, including bed & breakfast booking system and tour booking system. This article explains how to set up different time rules for hourly reservations. Hourly reservation rules are often used for boat rentals, bike rentals, paddleboard rentals, jetski/waverunner rentals and similar.

The hourly rental is designed to be used for rentals where the customer can select a start time and a variable amount of time for the rental, such as 1, 2 or 4 hours or a full day.

When the customer books an hourly rental, they will see an hourly calendar that shows availability for each hour during opening hours.

Here’s some examples of what the booking calendar can look like, depending on your configuration.
