How To: Availability Calendar

Members have been asking for a calendar that gives an overview of pitch availability at each campsite for any given month.

With the launch of the new on-line booking website, we have created an availability calendar to provide a view of pitch availability that is also fully interactive to allow searching and booking by pitch type and month, with visible prices of that pitch on that day, while at the same time keeping it easy to use.

Using the availability calendar

We have taken careful consideration to how you will use the calendar functions offered and have made the interaction easy and intuitive.

From the availability search, Click on the “+ “symbol to expand the site view

Availability search 1

 

The campsite page will expand and the calendar will be shown

Availability search 2

 

The calendar allows you to change pitch types by selecting the type from the list on the left hand side. You can also change the month by using the forward and back arrows on the ‘month’ bar at the top of calendar view.

In the above example the 18th 19th and 20th are unavailable.

When you have found availability, click or tap the day on the calendar grid selects an arrival date.

Availability search 3

 

In the above example the campsite has a minimum stay rule in place (min stay) of two nights and you can only select the 16th or 17th as a departure date.

Availability search 4

 

In the above example the 17th has been chosen as the departure date, making the booking a three night stay.

Now the arrival and departure dates have been selected, the ‘Continue with booking’ button is shown. Selecting this will take you to the next stage of the booking process.
