We have been developing the online booking management system to help Neilson take the most out of the online market.

The Neilson Holidays system provides a possibility to search available holidays, book them and manage the booked holidays. The Neilson Holidays system consists of two websites: MyNeilson and Neilson.

Neilson is the “main” website. It contains full information about holiday types, offers, prices, and accommodations. Neilson allows a user to search, view and book a holiday, including payment.

“I'd be happy to recommended Burning Buttons for your project. We started using them in 2016 following the launch of our website. Bearing in mind the updates were also based on integration with a complex reservation booking system, they coped very well. We have an excellent working relationship with them and feel that they are an extension to our team here in the UK even though they are thousands of miles away in Russia.”
