No-shows and Cancellations are no problem when you accept credit card bookings online with Instant World Booking.

Instant World Booking has been publishing material about lodging strategies for online reservation and marketing.  In short, accepting online credit card bookings from your website should be one of your highest priorities.

One of the most frequent questions and concerns of lodging operators is "How am I protected in the case of a No-show or late Cancellation?"

We have the solution:  For no-shows, you receive full payment since the booking was paid for in advance (on your website!).  For cancellations, you select a policy that allows you to collect any amount up to 100% of the booking if cancelled within a certain period prior to check-in.

Instant World Booking is a leader in online booking innovation.  Our latest offering is the revolutionary capability to take full payment (up to 100% deposit) from your guests at the time of booking.  We will take your guest's online reservation and credit card payment, right from your own website. We handle all the processing.

True online bookings from your website are more secure and efficient when you are assured 100% collection from your guests at confirmation.  This means no more worrying about customer payments.

There are no setup fees, software purchases, maintenance contracts, or monthly usage fees.  To accept credit card confirmed bookings, you don't need a merchant account and payment gateway, and there are no bank applications.  When adding up all these costs, typically billed by competitors in bits and pieces, the total cost ranges from 20% - 30% of your reservation value.  This includes credit card processing, which competitors leave to you to handle on your own.

We provide fully-integrated credit card bookings with 100% collection from your guests for a cost of only 12% of the reservation amount.


Never make a payment to us!

Our payment process adds even more value to our partners.  Since we collect from the guest in a traditional travel agency capacity, you never pay us anything. And, if you have no reservations for a given period, our service costs nothing.


Truly Flexible

Instant World Booking offers a flexible array of custom solutions to lodging partners.  If you don't wish to collect 100% at time of booking, we can set you up to collect any deposit amount, ranging from 8% - 100% of the reservation.  Our pricing is on a sliding scale also, so your cost could end up as low as 1.9% of the reservation.

Why Instant World Booking?


Travel industry experts agree that accepting credit cards is of primary importance to your online marketing effort.  Studies have shown that without the ability to accept online booking from your website, you lose up to 85% of your traffic to competing sites.  But, even with online booking you may still double your online profits with credit card acceptance.  Instant World Booking can achieve these profits for you.
