Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Each demo represents a sample homepage for a hostel. While these are fictitious hostels, you will immediately see the power of our fully integrated reservation system.  After all, a reservation system is more than just a Book now button. Imagine the unlimited customization and integration possibilities for your own website. Yet, these implementations are extremely simple to implement.

More questions about pricing and service

What do you mean by almost cost-free solution?

As mentioned, our services and pricing are highly customizable. This means we can review your reservation characteristics and trends, and propose a specific fee structure that can save you money. In many cases your cost may be substantially lower than our lowest nominal rate of 1.9%. This adds up to significant savings over any competing provider. Contact us today for a quote.

Are my customers charged a service fee?

Your booking engine will not charge your customers a service fee, unless you want it to. Customer service fees are never required for your booking engine. Service fees are simply one optional feature that may be used to reduce your costs.

Can I still keep all my other third party services and software when I use this booking engine for my website?

Yes. Unlike other providers which require you to use their CMS, availability calendars, property management, or other front desk software, Instant World Booking has no such requirement. If you use our booking engine, you can save money, and still use all the other services and providers you wish.

Am I required to use other services or software by Instant World Booking?

No. But, please feel free to check out our other marketing, online reservations, and payments services.

What is Full No-show (failure to arrive) and Cancellation protection?

We offer this important feature so you never have to worry about cancellations or customers that don't arrive. This guarantee is not available from any other provider. This feature guarantees you will still be paid even if a guest fails to show up, or cancels late. You may select your own flexible cancellation policy. You can choose any cancellation penalty amount you wish, up to 100% of the amount collected, and a cancellation period of up to 90 days before check-in. For no-shows (failure to arrive), you will receive full payment of the amount collected, less commissions.

How do I receive my deposit payments?

You choose. Convenient payment options currently include 1) Bank wire, 2) EFT - electronic funds transfer, 3) PayPal, 4) Bank check denominated in your own currency, and 5) Direct deposit to a U.S. Bank. These flexible options allow you to receive your funds either electronically or by physical delivery. Some methods may include an additional transfer fee. Enquire about your preferred payment method.

What special discounts are available if I switch today from a competing provider?

We want you to know how easy it is to save money by not overpaying. If you currently use a competing booking engine, please let us know. We'll not only offer a lower price, but we'll also give you a special incentive to switch today. Remember, when you switch to Instant World Booking, you can still use all your other third party services.
