You can enable a thank you page to be used instead of our standard successful booking message on our online booking form. The thank you page will redirect customers after they successfully book to a new page (thank you for booking page) with its own unique URL.

Use your GA4/Universal ID (measurement ID) from your Google Analytics account to track thank you page traffic by linking it to your thank you page.

You can use your GA4 ID (measurement ID) if you have switched from Universal Analytics to GA4

If you already use Google products, such as Gmail or Google Ads, then you can use the same account for Google Analytics.

The Google Analytics tracking code already exists on the thank you page so you only need your GA4/Universal ID to connect and start tracking

If you don't already have an account for a Google product, first create a Google account. You don't have to use the Gmail account for anything other than signing in and out of Google Analytics.
