What are customized bookings?
Customized bookings are bookings you can make in Bokun that override your normal settings without affecting your regular departures.
For example: You operate a walking tour around your city, and you have a start time of 12:00 each day. The availability for each departure is 8 Passengers and the price per participant is $50.
You make a special deal with a group of travelers that want to go on a tour. You offer them a price of $65 per participant. The group is made up of 10 Passengers, and they would like to start the tour at 14:00.
Customized bookings allow you to override the title, description, duration, price and departure time of an experience. Customized bookings do not affect the availability of your regular departures.
