Widget Wednesday: Frenchholiday

This week’s Widget Wednesday is… Frenchholiday!

Based in the quiet and tranquil Loire Valley in France, Jean and Mike Brookes offer three stunning holiday cottages to rent, perfect for a peaceful getaway.

The three cottages are more than just a place to stay, as they offer occupants a cosy and quiet haven with lots of local attractions for both couples and families.

Local activities include horse riding, fishing, golf, tennis and also exploring the nearby towns which are full of rich history and culture (I wonder if they have room for all the Booking Bug team?!).

When we spoke with Jean about French holidays BookingBug widget, she explained how it has helped her remain close to her customers, something that is very important to her and the business:

“The internet is full of vacation websites, which charge the customer a percentage, charge the property owner and also prevent direct contact with those providing the service until the booking is made.

“BookingBug gives our clients the ability to book directly online without being charged extra for doing so. It puts our clients and us in direct contact at the enquiry stage, to ensure that what we are offering matches their expectations. Keeping this personal touch is important.”


Great widget features:

  • Wonderfully colour-coded with the rest of their website, accentuating their charming image
  • Well thought-out customisation of the layout, neatly and clearly displaying all of their available time slots over the coming months
  • Clear pricing, differentiated by month, taking account of peak and off-peak seasons
  • Simplistic look and feel to the widget, ensuring customers can book quickly and efficiently
