Making it easy for guests to book with you online increases profits

Smart and Revolutionary
You don't need a merchant account, payment gateway, or credit card processor. There's no bank applications, approvals, credit card setups, or links to external processors. All of these are costly, and necessary when you process credit cards online.

Take secure payments up-front for online bookings.

Instant World Booking is a leader in online booking innovation.  Our latest offering is the revolutionary capability to secure full payment (100%) 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.

Instant World Booking's most comprehensive offering

Incredibly, no other provider offers the same level of service as Instant World Booking.  Here's why:

1. Most competing services will collect a portion of the booking as a deposit, but not 100% (we offer a full range of collection options up to 100%).

2. Those that provide up-front collection of funds are known as "fragmented services".  They invariably require you to obtain your own costly merchant account, involving bank approvals, and to administer the card processing yourself.

3. Other options include links to external consumer-based processors like PayPal® with no real integration.

Online payment adds security
