  • Hotel Booking Website Development with Laravel 5 Main Goal: Allow booking hotels General Description: My company will act as an intermediary between clients and hotels, just like Booking.com. The main difference is that I would like to implement a hotel shopping cart, this is, the client can book several hotels rooms (from different hotels) in just one “buy”. The clients would not be charged for the booking but still have to enter payment information in case they miss the booking (no show). Every time a client books a hotel, the website will offer a set of tourism guides for the region of the hotel (files in pdf format), that the client can download (one file per reservation). Website Areas: - Client (Frontend): Clients will enter the location/hotel name, check-in date, check-out date (by calendar forms); Website will list the available hotels in the area (20 km or less) from location; Client should be able to order the hotels by stars, price and ranking; If a client clicks an hotel, he should see all the hotel info (as usual in these cases), the room types and should be able to book a number of rooms; Once finished, he would be able to book more rooms from the same hotel or from different hotels; Once he has finished booking all hotels/rooms, he must checkout. Here, he can be a registered user or not; either way, I has to guarantee his booking by entering the credit card info (that would not be charged); the credit card will only be charged in case of missing the booking. After checkout, the clients will be able to download the pdf guide(s) they are entitled to; clients must be able to rank the hotel (1 to 5) and write a little comment (that will be published by website administrators if they consider it adequate); clients (registered or not) must be able to cancel the booking within the cancelation period policy of the hotel; clients (registered or not) must be able to change the booking (add/remove number of rooms) within the cancelation period policy of the hotel (if they want to change dates, they must cancel the booking and start a new one); - Hotel Owner (Backend): Hotel owners must have a secured backoffice area, where they can insert/edit all the data about their hotels; additionally, the will manage room availability by date (they can define prices for periods of time or prices for specific days); they can also block bookings in certain periods of time (due to overload or maintenance work in hotels; season hotels; etc); they will also be able to view the bookings concerning their hotel and search them by date; hotel owners must be able to communicate client no shows; Every time a client checkouts, the hotel owners will be informed, by email, of the client booking details, as well as credit card information (to be processed in case of no show); - Website Administrators (Backend): Administrators must be able to insert/edit/remove all data from the hotels and view the room availability per hotel; manage bookings; manage clients; manage hotels comments made by clients (decide if they are adequate); manage communicated no shows by hotel owners; associate pdf guides to hotels; be alerted by client cancellations; manage promotions (% of discount in specific hotel in specific day or period) Technologies: Frontend technologies: HTML, CSS and Javascript (and derived libraries) Backend technology: PHP (Laravel 5 as framework) Database engine: MySQL or PostgreSQL
