Customize An Email Template

All emails are pre-set with generic text. However, the text is fully customizable. Follow the instructions above to locate the email templates. Once in this section, choose the email you would like to edit by clicking on the pencil buton.

Important: but the Sender Name & Email Address must be completed on any email template used for it correctly work.

The Sender Name is the name of the person/company the email has been sent from. The Sender Email is used if a customer replies to an email automatically sent. It will need to be an active email address to receive and send a response. 

 

We have pre-set place holders ready for you to copy and paste below your email text box. These will automatically personalize your email to each customer, for example, adding their name, date of travel, etc. 

Once you have completed your changes click save

Tips: Editing Emails

When editing the email templates, you can use placeholders.

For example, if you would like to mention your customer’s name in the email, you can add {user.firstname} in place of the actual name of your customers.

For example, Say 'Bob' books a trip with you and in the confirmation email, you say:

“Hey {user.firstname}, thanks for booking a trip with us!”

Bob will receive an email saying:

“Hey Bob, thanks for booking a trip with us!”

We have a list of different placeholders for you to add to your emails to make them more personal and friendly. The available placeholders are listed at the bottom of each of the edit e-mail pages.
