Allotments are used to reserve rooms for the future sales of your partners. This is useful if you have buissness relationships with a wholesaler who provides you with customers without the need for him to do individual bookings upfront.

Allotments in Bókun can:

  • Belong to one of your Agents in Bókun.
  • Be released at a certain date, leaving all un-booked slots in the allotment bookable by anyone.

Creating your first allotment

  1. Navigate to Bookings > Allotments.
  2. Click Add at the top of the page.
  3. Create your allotment in the booking form presented to you.

    You need to set:
    -  Number of nights.
    -  Room types.
  4. Click the Book Button.
  5. You are now presented with a pop-up / lightbox asking if you want to Finish the booking or Add to the booking. Click Add to the booking.
  6. In the top-right corner of your screen, you now see a button labelled Create allotment. Click this button to create your allotment.
  7. You are now presented with a settings page for your allotment. You can fill this in and save. You can also edit / update the settings for each allotment later.

    Each Allotment can store information about:
    -  Description for internal use.
    -  Expiry date. This is the date Bókun releases the allotment.
    -  Agent. You can assign the allotment to an agent, allowing him to log in through Bókun's Agent Area and create bookings towards his allotment.

Clicking Save will create the allotment.
