You can optionally attach a PDF for a location. When a user books this location, the PDF is attached to the email.

If your location includes a google map, you need to enter the co-ordinates. For help with co-ordinates, click here. Then you have MAP CONTENT which will display brief information when the user clicks on the pin within the google map.

Please be sure to select a Country for your location as it is mandatory.

And - site postcode if applicable, will be used for displaying the weather on your location page. If the location is international please enter eg 'Costa Daurada, Spain'.

Don't enter 'SiteEmail' as someone as a contact at the site- this person will be emailed with a copy of the confirmation email each time someone makes a booking on this site.
