Calendar with multiple bookings and a blocked day due to the notice period

Right now, nearly half of FishingBooker’s customers are looking for a trip that’s less than a week away. A third of them want to go fishing within the next 3 days. 

The majority of these people are looking for trips with instant confirmation. But if your Instant Book notice period is set at more than 3 days, they may not know that you offer this service. 

With no ranking boost or “Instant Confirmation” badge on your listing for that period, short notice customers end up looking elsewhere. Meanwhile, your boat stays at the dock.

Increase Your Exposure

Adjust your advance notice period, and your listing will be seen by thousands more people every month. With 70% of customers choosing Instant Book and 43% of them looking to fish at short notice, this can mean a serious increase in trips for you!

How it works:

  1. Go to manage your listing;
  2. Click the Availability settings;
  3. Make sure Instant Book is enabled and select a notice period you’re comfortable with. We recommend 1–2 days before the trip.
Steps for adjusting notice period. Click "go to listing" from the manage charters page. Click "availability". Choose advance notice period.

Once your notice period is set up, all you need to do is keep your calendar updated. Then, the next time you have a last minute opening, thousands more customers will see your listing.

We think this will make a big difference to the number of bookings you get this high season. But if you change your mind, you can always change your settings back. It’s completely up to you!
