Ever wonder what a widget is? It’s a tiny snippet of code that can be added to a website or another internet-enabled platform within the digital world. Does that definition clear it up? Still a little confused? Us too. Don’t worry; all you need to know is it’s one of the most important features within Bókun.

Bókun Pro, our premium subscription plan, offers widgets designed specifically for folks in the tourism industry that allow you to accept bookings on your website.

Already using a Bókun Widget?

It’s a game-changer, right? Scroll down to the list below to find our recent enhancements!

Running your business via emails and phone calls?

If you’re currently taking bookings via a contact form on your website and over the phone, you’re likely missing out on bookings. Adding a checkout widget to your website will mean you can accept bookings (and payments!) while you sleep.

Love your current website, but it’s incapable of accepting bookings?

If your tour business already has a great website, but it just can’t accept bookings and payments, then you’ve done almost all the work already. Yay! Now, take the next step by simply adding the “Book Now” button widget , which will turn your existing website into a new revenue source.
