Caravan Site Booking Calendar

I’m currently working on an update to a website I built years ago for Erwbarfe Farm Caravan Park. We’ve been discussing the addition of a booking system for years now and it is finally coming to fruition. With a number of different items that can be booked such as electric pitches, non-electric pitches, Wigwams and Bell tents, there’s quite a bit of configuration to do to get it all up and running. On top of that each item has different prices and availability depending on the time of year and whether it is low season, mid season or high season.

The customisation doesn’t stop there though as some things include 4 people as standard with each booking. Other resources can accommodate up to 8 people with the first two free. On top of that additional children under the age of 4 are free, children between 4 and 17 are £2 per night and additional adults are £3 per night so all of that has to be figured into the booking and payments system. People can add extras such as awnings, gazebos and additional cars too. Again all of this has to be logged and charged for. What was supposed to have been a fairly easy online availability calendar and booking system has proved a little more complicated than first thought.

I think it’s getting there though and is almost ready for some beta testing before going live. I guess it’s nice to have a bit of a challenge now and then. I’m also aware of the fact that they are hoping to have the website completely revamped next year as well so I’ve been building it in such a way that it should be easy to redesign when the time comes.
