Designed for tourism

Tourism businesses are different. Guests come from all over the world – and they book and pay in many different ways.

That's why we built a platform that handles 100+ currencies for both guests and businesses. We support the fullest range of booking types and payment methods, to meet the unique requirements of tourism businesses.

Online Travel Agents (OTAs)

Earn more from OTA bookings and reduce no shows by taking payments in advance.

  • Take advance payments when customers book through major Online Travel Agents (like and Expedia)

  • Improve your pricing strategy with different pricing for non-refundable and refundable bookings
Direct Bookings
