LemonBooking booking system
User-friendly online booking software
No more calls and emails back and forth to find suitable dates. Customers check the calendar to see what's available and make a booking request. Customers on the Silver and Gold plans have an integrated calendar while Bronze plan customers can connect a Google Calendar.
Booking request form
Customers can submit booking requests using this form. They are prompted to include details about their request including how they plan to use your facilities, how many people will be attending and whether they would like to hire additional equipment/services.Make a test booking request

Save time when replying to booking requests by selecting from a collection of email templates. For example, you can create different templates for approving one-off and repeat bookings, declining booking requests, sending invoices and recording payments.
You can also manage your email signatures separately to your templates so you don't have to update every template when changing your phone number (or similar).

Generate an invoice for a booking with just a few clicks. The system will auto-fill the customer's billing address, your payment information and details about their booking. You can also generate custom invoices where you choose exactly what to invoice for. This could be for additional equipment or services not covered by the booking system.
You can choose (and customise) several different invoice templates - for example to accommodate different payment instructions or due dates for different types of bookings. You may wish to invoice one off bookings upfront and repeat bookings on a monthly basis and can set up different invoice templates to support this.
It's also possible to assign several bank accounts to collect payments for different locations into different accounts.
Use the easy setup guide to connect your online payment provider (Stripe, PayPal etc.) to take seamless online payments from your customers. Set a payment limit to avoid transaction fees on high value bookings.
Upload photos and descriptions for your facilities to show people what they can hire. Set the capacity and add attributes (e.g. width, length, ...) for each facility to help people find the perfect match. It's also possible to register private facilities which can only be booked by admins.
Equipment & servicesAdmin > Facilities > Add resource
Equipment & services
Offer equipment and services for hire to your customers when they make a booking request. These can be paid or free extras such as WiFi, a cleaning service, a projector, tables and chairs and so forth.
If you're running a large community centre or organisation, you may wish to manage several locations from the same booking system. This functionality is included in our Gold Plan.
The system can automatically calculate booking prices using a range of pricing rules. Set prices for each customer group (residents, charities, etc.), for different days and times, for specific time slots and much more.
Fees, discounts & deposits
|Refundable booking deposit||£50.00|
Fees, discounts & deposits
In addition to price rules, you can also have the system automatically apply fee, discount and deposit rules for different booking requests. For example — all "Party" requests require a £50 deposit or that all "Charity" bookings should receive a 20% discount.
Manage customer accounts Customer accounts
You can register both people and groups/businesses as customers in LemonBooking. Group accounts can be assigned to multiple users where each user has a specific role (e.g. bookings, billing, etc.).
Auto repeat bookings
With the Gold plan, you can set regular bookings to repeat automatically until they are cancelled. This can be combined with any repeat pattern supported by the system (every week, every fortnight, every day, every weekday, 1st Monday of the month, 4th Friday of the month etc.). You can also set up exceptions for holidays, sickness, cancellations etc..
The Silver plan allows you to book automatically up to one year in advance and also gives you access to all the repeat patterns.
Integrates with any website
You can connect the booking system to an existing website or build a new one using our website editor at no extra cost. Our websites are search engine friendly and packed with tools to promote community activities & events, highlight local businesses and keep everyone up to date with your latest news.
You can also use LemonBooking as a back office system.
LemonBooking integrates with well known payment providers (e.g. Stripe), accounting tools (e.g. Xero) and other digital services (e.g. Dropbox) out of the box via integrations.
With the Gold Plan, it's also possible to build custom integrations to other third party services and websites using the API. Documentation (with a full list of endpoints) can be requested from firstname.lastname@example.org.
