What is a booking engine? Is it the same thing as a widget? 

A booking engine is an application used to accept online reservation on your website. At Bókun, we use the term widgets to refer to any of the online booking engines or other applications that help make your online booking experience better.

Why do I need a booking engine?

You need a booking engine if you want to accept online bookings or if you are reselling your suppliers' products on your own website.

How do I add a widget to my website?

You need to add your website in Bókun as a booking channel before you’re able to embed a widget. Learn more about booking channels. Then, widgets are added to a website using an embedded code that is generated directly in Bókun.

Where can I access the widget dashboard in Bókun?

Click on Online Sales Tools at the top of the page in your account.
