When you synchronize Booking.com with MaxiBooking, the data exchange becomes automatic. When changing the reservation in Booking, they are also automatically updated in the MaxiBooking program, so any changes made in MaxiBooking by the hotel administrator will update the information in Booking.com after synchronization. For the correct introduction of changes (dates, conditions, services) it is recommended to ask the guest to make the desired changes on Booking.com.
Important! All synchronization settings must be made on the original website Booking.com, not on the websites of the same service in other domains.
The initial configuration of the connection to Booking.com is made on their website. To synchronize MaxiBooking with Booking.com, please follow the instructions exactly. If you have problems with the connection, you need to contact the Booking support service, as the adjustment is made through their portal.
