This plugin embeds the arcRes Booking Widget on a travel supplier website and ensures it is displayed for all arcRes-driven referrals.

arcRes booking and reservations widgets can be used by hotels and tourism operators of all types (apartment bookings, condo reservations, villa rentals, activities, car rentals, tour reservations, etc.).

The widgets can be customised to your website giving travellers a consistent experience while offering advanced shopping services including interactive quotes, reservations, bookings, lead generation and direct marketing.

The widgets are easily customised to your site colours and fonts by editing a simple stylesheet file.
