We need a booking engine for a hotes website, similar to the one at Booking.com. The engine has to:
1) Let the user enter the city, dates he wants to book a hotel, number of persons, etc.
2) Show the available hotels and available rooms in each one.
3) Let the user choose one hotel and room type, and proceed to checkout and payment.
The difficult part is the backend, where each hotel has to have an access in order to update availability and rates of its rooms, and also to insert offers (like early booking discounts, last minute discount, minimum stay discount, etc.). The backend has to be very intuitive, and has to provide the hotel with multiple options and possibilities to sell its rooms. Thus, the booking engine front-end will be designed in a way that it can accept all offers that the hotelier will enter in the backend. Please look at [url removed, login to view] for ideas on an easy design, and also look to hotel chains websites to see booking engines of the kind we need.
Time for delivery is important, but having a stable, visual and quick booking engine is more important. Please note that we need it to be mobile friendly (for both Android and Apple).
