If dates are not available, show other available dates nearby.
They can then book those dates and either pay for it up front using their credit card or Paypal or mail by cheque.
After booking, it will send a confirming email to them with directions etc as indicated by prefs. If they pay by cheque it will send them details on how to mail that money and request them to confirm their booking in the email.
