Adding Descriptions and Photos to your Tours and Activities

  • Updated

When setting up your Rentals, Tours (Tickets) or Activities, you will be able to include a detailed description of your offerings and include a photo(s).  The Description and Photos will show on the online Checkout page when your customers book online through the booking widget.

To add your Descriptions:

  • Go to Settings tab
  • If you offer Tours, then choose Tickets
  • If you offer Rentals, then choose Rentals
  • Select the Descriptions tab

Writing a great description of your tours is important to entice your customers to book.  The system offers a robust description section in the setup that will allow you to add many options/information about the tour.

The Description setup includes:

List Description: This is a short sentence or two that describes the item.  It will be seen if you use the Product List option for online checkout.

Tagline: The tagline is a short phrase or sentence that will show below the Tour or Rental name and above the picture in the online checkout page.

Description: This is the main description of the activity that allows you to give many details.  You can include multiple paragraphs as needed.


The Whats: include additional information in the provided text fields for what to see, what to do, what to bring.  These fields are optional and can be left blank if they do not apply.



Photos are a great way to visually showcase your offerings and are an important part of the setup.  You can add several photos for each rental, tour, or activity to create a carousel of your product.

To add your Photos:

  • Go to Settings tab
  • If you offer Tours, then choose Tickets
  • If you offer Rentals, then choose Rentals
  • Select the Photos tab
  • Upload photos by selecting them from your customer, or you can drag and drop photos


All uploaded photos will show on this page, but only the Current Photos will show for the product's page that you are on.


When uploading images to the system, the following rules should apply:

  • All checkout images will be shown with a 4:3 aspect ratio. The aspect ratio is the ratio between the width and the height of an image. If a picture is uploaded with a different aspect ratio, it will result in white borders.
  • BookingCentral recommends that uploaded images be 1280 x 960 or 2560 x 1920 pixels (width x height). Other common 4:3 resolutions are: 
      • 1280 by 960
      • 1400 by 1050
      • 1440 by 1080
      • 1600 x 1200
      • 1856 x 1392
      • 1920 x 1440
      • 2048 x 1536
      • 2560 x 1920
      • 2880 x 2160
      • 3072 x 2304
      • 3840 x 2880
      • 4096 x 3072
      • 5120 x 3840
  • Images that are smaller than the 1280 x 960 resolution can be uploaded, but will appear as small pictures in the online checkout with thick white borders around it.

Preview how the activity will look online by going to Settings - Web Sales.  Great descriptions and photos looks great to interested customers.
