Many properties using the BedandBreakfast.com Online Reservations program have requested that they be able to receive text messages to their cell phone when reservations are booked and/or cancelled as a result of this program.
We’re delighted to report that we have just added this functionality for the United States, and are pleased to provide participating innkeepers with more flexibility as they’re out and about doing the things they have to do to run their inns. If you would like to sign up for this additional FREE notification for BedandBreakfast.com Online Reservations reservations/cancellations, simply follow these steps:
Log in to your BedandBreakfast.com Home Base using your property ID and password.
Once logged into your Home Base, hover your mouse over Listing in the top left corner and select Address/Phone.
Under Phone Numbers, select Text Alerts from the dropdown menu.
Enter your cellular phone number into the spaces provided.
Last, click Submit at the bottom of the page.
Once you have entered and saved this information, going forward, any time you get a reservation or a cancellation as a result of the BedandBreakfast.com Online Reservations program, you will be sent a text message with the details. Although BedandBreakfast.com does not charge for this service, your cellular provider may charge a fee. Please be aware of any charges that your cellular provider might apply to your bill before setting this up to avoid any unexpected charges.
BedandBreakfast.com will not use, distribute or display your cellular number on our website if it has been entered for the purposes of text alerts. If you have chosen to enter your cellular number in your Home Base under the Cellular option, then your cellular number will indeed be displayed.
