To make a reservation
In case a customer contacts you by phone to make a reservation.

The booking window will open in front of you.

Explanation of the three types of reservation
An online reservation will have an expiration date
A firm booking does not know the ticket category of reserved tickets. Knowing the category helps in meal planning and quantities. We must also pay attention to the risks of "No Shows".
3- With Deposit
A deposit booking is the number of tickets that must be sold to secure the booking. On a presale, refund rules apply.
