You can integrate Google Analytics Tracking codes into your booking process to gather data on your customer's behaviour.

Bókun has built-in integrations to:

  • E-Commerce tracking, allows you to track the numbers of transactions and calculate conversions.
  • Enhanced E-Commerce Tracking allows you to track the booking process, what products were added to the shopping cart, updated and deleted from the cart etc.

Integrating the Google Analytics Tracking Code allows the widgets to have access to the campaign parameters from the parent site, among others to Google Ads.

Also, it is possible to connect the booking widgets to Google E-commerce Tracking (Read more about it here).

How to connect Google Analytics to your widgets

To connect your E-Commerce tracking to Bókun you need to add your Google Analytics tracker ID code to your booking channel and define your tracking type (E-Commerce tracking or enhanced E-Commerce tracking).

Where do I find my Google Analytics code?

1. Sign in to your Analytics account.
2. Click All Web Site Date

3. There you can see your Google Analytics ID. It should be in the format of
UA-XXXXXXX-X.

How to connect Google Analytics to your widgets

1. Click Widgets > Booking channel from the top menu in Bókun

2. Select a booking channel you'd like to add Google Analytics to from the list of available channels.

3. Click Tracking on the left hand side panel. Then enter your Google Analytics tracker ID and select the type of e-commerce tracking. We recommend choosing Enhanced e-commerce tracking. Remember to click Save & Continue.

Troubleshooting

To troubleshoot issues with Google Analytics not tracking all bookings, please check the following details in your Google Analytics integration:

  • That you have entered the correct GA tracker ID in your Bókun account.
  • That you have selected Enhanced e-commerce tracking in your Bókun account.
  • That E-Commerce and Enhanced E-Commerce Reporting is enabled in your Google Analytics account.
  • That you have added the URLs you want to the Referral Exclusion List in your Google Analytics account. We recommend adding the following:

Please keep in mind that Ad blockers is the most common reason why some bookings are not tracked. Users enable Ad blockers in their own computers so Bókun can’t troubleshoot this.
