Modified on Mon, 08 Jan 2024 at 04:41 PM

This is where you can update the settings and style of your booking engine. You can work your way through the key settings and configuration to ensure the booking engine displays the best way for you.


Booking Engine Styling, Logo and CSS

Here you can change the booking engine browser icon and logo. To change the colours of the booking engine you can contact the support team to upload a custom style sheet for you.

Analytic Settings

If you use Google analytics on your website and wish to carry this over to the booking engine pages, this is where you can enter your GTM container ID. The same applies if you have a Facebook pixel ID, it can be added here.


This is where you can configure your booking engine settings to what you require.

Max rooms for Group Booking - If you want to set a limit on how many rooms one person can booking then set it here. 

Enable location filtering - If you have different locations for your property you would have this ticked.

Enable iCal feed - If you are wanting to use iCal you would tick this box. You would then see an iCal URL when you go to Rooms > Room Types.

Hide promo code box on landing page - If you do use promotion or discount code then you can tick this to hide the box on the booking engine.

Enable choice of payment method - We have introduced the ability for properties to give their customers the option to 'Pay Later' on the Hop Booking Engine and settle their bill by invoice (whether that be a company or themselves) without entering any card details. For obvious reasons, this is something that we have given you complete control over and so will only ever appear to guests if all the criteria have been met.

Accommodation Unit Plural - You would add what your accommodation units plural are called here. e.g. rooms, cottages etc.

*Please note that "same day booking restrictions" set here ONLY apply to the booking engine (your website), to set up same day restrictions on any connected OTA’s like, you would need to contact the OTA directly to set this up.

Credit Card Logos - Select which credit card logos you want to appear on the booking engine.
