Advanced Website: Configure a GDPR-friendly contact form

The information in this article is relevant only for Pro users at this time. For information about booking websites for Lite users, refer to the Guesty Booking Engine

To obtain consent from your visitors upon contact form submission, add a new field to your contact form following the instructions above and select either Opt-In or Free Text as the Field Type.

To add a contact form:

  1. In the left panel, click Widgets.
  2. Click and drag the Contact Form widget into your site.

To learn more about adding widgets to your site, see Add Widgets.

Add opt-in field

To add a check box confirming your visitor's consent to share form responses, add an Opt-In field. This field will be required to submit the form response.

The default text is By checking, I agree to share my form responses.

Add free text field

To add a different notification, add a Free Text field. The field appears as a notification below the fields of your contact form.


There is no default GDPR or privacy-related placeholder text in the free text field, as this is a multi-purpose field, so you need to place your custom text.
